Depot Square Call for Art

In recognizing that public art creates a unique sense of place and pride for all citizens and visitors to our community; the City of Holyoke, as part of a Community Development Block Grant has been awarded funding to complete an art installation in and/or around the area of Depot Square and the Holyoke Rail Platform at the corners of Main and Dwight Streets.

The City of Holyoke seeks proposals for a permanent art installation which may include, but is not limited to painting, sculpture, lighting, projection and/or mixed media; with a project budget not to exceed $18,000.

The purpose of this project is to bring to the newly formed gateway a culturally vibrant atmosphere – welcoming arrivals, greeting passing travelers, and sending off residents. The installation of this artwork will improve the neighborhood’s sense of identity as well as signify the area as a safe place valued by its community.

The Call for Art invites qualified artists and/or design professionals that can conceive, create and install public art infrastructure as described herein to submit proposals to provide those specific services.

For the complete Request for Proposals/Call for Art containing the Scope of Work and Proposal Submission Guidelines please contact David Martins, City of Holyoke Chief Procurement Officer at 413-322-5650.

Proposals are due 3/9/16 by 10AM.
