CITY SEEKS ARTWORK FOR SCHWEITZER CUTOFF ROUNDABOUT

Sandpoint - The City of Sandpoint Arts Commission invites artists to submit artwork for installation in the Schweitzer Cutoff Roundabout.   The Schweitzer Cutoff Roundabout and Bridge were opened on November 22, 2017, after approximately six months of construction.

The Roundabout serves as a gateway to the City of Sandpoint at its northern edge and an important connection point between many different cultural, industrial and recreational opportunities.  This includes Schweitzer Mountain Resort, the Sandpoint Airport and surrounding industrial businesses, the Bonner County Fairgrounds and the neighboring City of Ponderay. A successful proposal will reflect the multi-use nature of the location as well as Sandpoint’s love for its pristine land and water.

Submission is open to artists throughout the United States, although special consideration may be given to artists living in Idaho, Montana, Washington or Oregon.

The top three finalists will be announced on or around February 5, 2018.  The three finalists will receive a $1,000 stipend to prepare final scale drawings/marquettes, costs and description of the installation process and production timeline associated with the proposed art piece.  Final selection to be made June 20, 2018 by the City Council.

The total budget for the art project is $90,000.  Funding is provided by the Sandpoint Urban Renewal Agency.
