The City of Nampa’s Arts and Historic Preservation Committee invites artists to design an interactive sculpture to be placed in Lloyd Square, located in downtown Nampa. The sculpture must incorporate the word “NAMPA” and be interactive and safe for the public.
With an artist budget of $90,000 allocated, an artist or artist-team are invited to work with designers and construction contractors to design, fabricate, and install artwork as a unique and interactive aspect of Lloyd Square. This public art opportunity is open to artists and artist-teams, age 18 and over, living within Idaho or within a contiguous state (Oregon, Washington, Montana, Wyoming, Utah or Nevada). Artists living elsewhere that have a demonstrated connection to Nampa will also be considered.
The sculpture should: complement and celebrate the culture and history of the City of Nampa; be an integrated and functional aspect of Lloyd Square; and be durable, low maintenance and appropriate for its setting.
The submission deadline is Friday, September 2, 2022, at 1 p.m. MST. A selection committee consisting of representatives from the Nampa Arts and Historic Preservation committee, City of Nampa and the Downtown Nampa Community Association will review all submissions and select an artist or artist-team.
