EXTENDED DEADLINE: September 14, 2010, 5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time

The City of San Jose is seeking concept proposals for design of an artwork that is to be located on the tank of an historic water tower that is on private property near the corner of Martha and S. 5th Streets.

The artwork may be, but is not limited to, two-dimensional treatments including a painted mural, and/or possible lighting or lighting effects. The artist will be commissioned to complete installation-ready design development of the final selected concept proposal. Due to the location of the artwork, the City will contract with qualified professional to fabricate and install the artwork in consultation with the artist.

Proposed designs cannot permanently alter the water tower or tank.

Design: Up to $10,000 depending on the complexity of the project.

Fabrication/Installation: Up to $50,000. The fabrication and installation of the artwork will be completed by professionals due to the unusual location for the artwork. The fabrication and installation will be managed by the City of San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs. This part of the budget will not be paid to the artist, but is included to provide an understanding about the scope of the project.

This call for proposals is open to artists who live and/or work in Santa Clara County. Submittal shall include a proof of residency-or-work relationship.

Artists must be eligible to work in the United States and have a valid U.S. Social Security or Tax Identification Number by the application deadline.

This project is on a fast-track for completion. The selected artist is expected to be available throughout the project to complete the design stage and work in consultation with the fabricators.

Artists who are currently under contract with the City of San Jose Public Art Program are not eligible to apply.

All applicants must submit completed Concept Proposal Submittal, Background Materials Submittal and the Proof of County Residency by the deadline. Failure to meet the deadline or incomplete submittals will not be eligible for consideration.

Only one application per person will be accepted.
