Artist opportunity: West Haymarket and Pinnacle Bank Arena
The West Haymarket area, a new development area near downtown Lincoln, is currently under construction. Plans for the new area include a new civic arena, community plaza, hotels, retail space, and parking spaces. A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) of Artists is being sought for public art for three locations in this new development. The first is the plaza space in the foreground of the new arena. The second has two spaces for public art - a wall section and a bulkhead section in the arena lobby. The third location is a streetscape.
The deadline to submit for the RFQ is April 13. A stipend will be awarded to selected artists to submit a Request for Proposals due by June 8. These public art projects are anticipated to be completed by autumn of 2013. The current budget for public art exceeds $1,000,000.
