***PUBLIC ART OPPORTUNITY, Gresham, Oregon***
The Regional Arts & Culture Council in Portland, Oregon, invites artists/teams residing in the United States to submit qualifications to create multiple freestanding sculptures for the new Center for the Arts Community Plaza in Gresham, Oregon.
PROJECT BUDGET: The art budget is $175,000 including all related costs for design, fabrication and installation.
Power, water and drainage will be provided to the location of the art. The use of these utilities is at the discretion of the selected artist and should not be viewed as an expectation or requirement.
What makes this public art so special is that with the use of water and power it can waste our taxdollars long into the future.
I'm sure that the citizens of Gresham are very excited to get this sculpture. Maybe they can ride the crime infested MAX to go view it. It's not like that $175,000 could have hired a couple law enforcement officers to actually improve the livability of that city.
