Leadership Project - Downtown Art Benches
MainStreet Steamboat Springs, in conjunction with Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort's 2012-2013 Leadership Steamboat class, is seeking artists, artisans, and craftsmen to design, fabricate and deliver five (5) artistic benches for the downtown area.
The project will place these benches on Yampa Street, Lincoln Avenue, and/or side streets, in downtown Steamboat Springs. The goal of this project is to create aesthetically pleasing, creative and functional seating which reflects Steamboat's local heritage that can be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.
The Downtown Art Bench Project includes an allowance of $15,000 for the fabrication and installation of (5) artistic benches. The project will be funded by private donations.
Leadership Steamboat is currently seeking artists, craftsmen, and fabricators through a Request for Statements of Qualifications (RFQ) process.
Interested parties may download the RFQ or request the RFQ from MainStreet Steamboat at firstname.lastname@example.org. Designs must be submitted by February 28, 2013. Please see below for ideas for this project.
Businesses and individuals interested in sponsoring these permanent benches may also contact MainStreet Steamboat for more information.
