Call for Artists, Paid commission of $400 | Art Bench Project


Project Intent:
To support and promote art and public convenience in the community and to create points of interest to help connect the Downtown and SixPoints neighborhoods. This initial call is to be the first installment of a larger 3 year plan. In the first phase of this project The West Allis BID is seeking to commission 7 painted art benches.

Each artist selected will be assigned one park bench. Each artist will be supplied with basic materials, any other materials should be provided by the artist.
Selected artists will receive $100 for RFP
Selected artists will receive $300 commission upon completion of the project.

The project is open to artists, age 18 and over, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, age, military status, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical or mental disability.

Selection Process:
- The review committee will evaluate all submissions and recommend six (6) finalists.

- West Allis BID will subcontract with the finalists to prepare proposals for review by the committee along with facilitating meetings with the finalists. An honorarium of $100 will be provided to each finalist to develop one or more preliminary concepts for the art bench.

- Proposals should be developed enough to provide a good understanding of how the art will look within the dimensions of the bench. Finalists will then be asked to present their proposals to the committee.

-Each artist will then receive $300 upon completion of all work.
