Two Opportunities at The Porch
University City District (UCD) is seeking qualifications from emerging and/or established visual artists, designers, and architects to develop lively, engaging, and resonant temporary art to be installed at The Porch during 2014. UCD’s long-term vision for The Porch has been “a permanent place for temporary art" and thanks to the generosity of the Knight Arts Challenge, they are able to make that vision a reality. UCD believes that this is an exciting opportunity in a highly visible location. Either one or two commissions will result from this RFQ, depending on proposal quality and diversity. The total budget for each commission, which is to cover all artist fees, design, fabrication, installation and other costs is between $50,000 and $75,000.
