AIRLINE SUPPORT BUILDING PUBLIC ART OPPORTUNITY
The Arts Program is excited to announce a new public art opportunity at the proposed Airline Support Building. Interested applicants should visit www.san.submittable.com for complete details and to apply.
Project Description/Summary: The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority seeks statements of qualifications from artists or multiple artists as a team to design, fabricate, transport and deliver, and consult during installation for an Artwork to be installed by the Authority for the Airline Support Building.
An Artist or Artist team will be selected to design, fabricate, transport and deliver, and consult during the installation of a permanent artwork for the Airline Support Public Art Opportunity. The proposed Artwork will be sited in front of security fencing that surrounds a secured Airside apron area used by airline tenants for staging of cargo and ground equipment. The artwork is expected to double as a screening element and may take the form of a screen, wall relief, or multiple successive sculptural elements. The artwork should resonate with the Airport’s commitment to environmental stewardship. It should contemplate the unique siting of the Airport, the ecological conditions and history of the site, as well as the native flora and fauna. The artwork should also consider wind or solar power to activate kinetic or lighting components. The selected artist or artist team will be encouraged to propose use of sustainable construction or fabrication methods and other strategies through which the artwork can support the Airport’s sustainability efforts. The artwork is expected to provide a distinct experience both during the day and evening. Finally, as primary views of the work are from moving vehicles, the artwork should offer a dynamic experience from this vantage point.
The Artist selected for this opportunity will collaborate closely with the Authority’s design team throughout the design, construction, and installation process.
Estimated Budget: $300,000
