We are inviting proposals for Kings Beach Roundabout Art, a permanent public art installation to be placed on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe in each of two traffic roundabouts in Kings Beach, CA. The roadway is North Lake Boulevard (which is also CA State Highway 28), the main thoroughfare. There are two roundabouts, and two (2) separate artist’s proposals will be chosen, one for each roundabout.
This project is commissioned by Tahoe Public Art, a formal consortium of North Tahoe Arts, North Tahoe Business Association and Tahoe City Downtown Association. This is a Request For Proposal (RFP) process and proposals must be postmarked no later than January 25, 2015.
There will be three rounds of selection: the first two by juries and the final selection by the community-at-large. The first jury will sit February 15, 2015; the second jury will sit March 12, 2015 and the final selection will be made on March 19, 2015. The installation must be in place by September 26, 2015 and the unveiling will be held on September 27, 2015, as the crowning jewel celebration of North Lake Tahoe’s Art Month.
The artist’s honorarium will not exceed $125,000 per roundabout. This includes all labor, transportation, materials, and installation costs.
There is no restriction on artists’ eligibility (beyond the project’s required parameters stated below); however, no additional funding for travel costs is available.
