This can be a permanent or temporary installation (ideally at least six months in duration). This installation is a component of an annual festival called the Ebb & Flow River Arts Project.

Budget: Two or three finalists will be selected and awarded $500 to research and develop final proposals. The budget for the final selected installation is $50,000. The budget includes artist fees, travel and lodging, materials, & supplies.

Deadline: Qualifications must be submitted by December 4, 2017.

Project Timeline: Installation must be complete by the end of May 2018 to be unveiled on June 1. We understand that this is a tight timeline, so we need artists/teams that can hit the ground running!
