The Request for Qualifications for the Minnesota State University Moorhead Livingston Lord Library Percent for Art Installation is open with a February 6 deadline for the qualifications documents. The Minnesota Percent for Art in Public Places program acquires works of art to be exhibited in and around state buildings in areas regularly accessible to the general public. The program is administered by the Minnesota State Arts Board in cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Administration. MSUM is seeking qualifications of an artist to create a permanent art installation to be located in one of two locations on the Library’s first floor—the entryway/lobby and/or the learning commons/atrium. The Livingston Lord Library is located at the heart of campus and is home to the Library, Information Technology, Faculty Development Center, and the University Archives. MSUM has allocated $75,000‐85,000 for the selected artist for this project. This amount includes travel and all installation costs. Support for this percent‐for‐art commission comes from the building remodeling project of the Livingston Lord Library and Technology Center. Up to four finalists will be selected and will be paid a stipend of $1,000 to design an artwork. Finalists’ proposals will include a graphic depiction of the proposed artwork, schedule (design, fabrication and installation), installation method, and budget. Additional requirements will be outlined in instructions to finalists. Finalists will be required to attend an onsite interview with the selection panel. These interviews are tentatively scheduled for the week of March 11, 2015. To learn more about eligibility considerations, selection criteria, and submission requirements, visit http://finance.mnscu.edu/facilities/design-construction/announcements/Library%20Percent%20for%20Art%20RFQ%20announcement%20%20FINAL.pdf.
