Title Public Art RFP: Victoria College Campus
Organization Victoria College
Closing Date
Location Victoria, Texas

Victoria College (VC) is embarking on a master plan to construct a comprehensive student center and update the roadways, grounds, and parking features on the main campus, located at 2200 East Red River, Victoria, TX. The goal of the plan is to create a modern, warm, and welcoming college that encourages college attendance and functions well for students, employees and visitors. Artworks will become a notable element of the space and should be timeless providing students, employees and visitors a reason to gravitate to areas in which artwork is placed, and to interact with that artwork in some form or fashion. The proposed locations for the artworks below also align with or are in close proximity to VC’s one-mile on-campus fitness walking trail, and the artworks should help to enliven and define the trail. Artwork may include three-dimensional work, benches, and sidewalk art. Thematic suggestions include VC; Victoria and Texas Coastal Bend references; time, transformation and change; the college experience. Artists are encouraged to consider these suggestions, and their own artistic vision, in their creative concepts.

The College has identified four areas for installation of artwork (see map included in RFP). Respondents may provide proposals for one, several, all, or additional artworks.

Eligibility: This commission is open to all professional artists residing or working in the United States.

Budget Description: The total proposed cost should not exceed $15,000 per artwork, inclusive of all elements of cost per work. VC’s final budget for awarding this contract is contingent upon the receipt of competitive grant funding. The project budget should include design, artist/team fee, fabrication, supervision, installation, equipment rental, documentation, verification, artist travel, administration, liability insurance and all costs involved with the project.
