Call to Artists RFQ

The Erie County Redevelopment Authority is accepting qualifications from artists (or artist teams) for a potential public art opportunity along the 12th Street Industrial Corridor in Erie’s urban core.

EMI Rendering

This potential opportunity coincides with the redevelopment of the former Erie Malleable Iron (EMI) complex. It is desired to commission up to two artists (or artist teams) from Erie County to create finished sculptural artwork to be installed at what will be a high-tech business park.

We are looking for artists (or artist teams) with strong portfolios of past work who demonstrate a proven track record of large-scale sculptural projects.  Artists (or artist teams) will submit online their applications for consideration. From this, the Erie County Redevelopment Authority will select semi-finalists who are most qualified for this project. The semi-finalists will be paid a modest design fee to conduct a site visit and then create and submit site-specific design proposals. 

Using these proposals, one artist (or artist team) will be selected as the finalist for each project and will be expected to lead the production of the artwork from concept to delivery.
