Call for Artists: Downtown Consolidated Office Building




The new Downtown Consolidated Office Building will be at 501 Fourth Ave. S. and co-locate City employees and services currently in several sites throughout downtown Minneapolis and serve the City’s broad range of constituents. The design team for the Consolidated for the Consolidated Office building includes the Minneapolis firm MSR (Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle) working in partnership with the international firm Henning Larsen.

The City is seeking an experienced artist/artist team to work with the project design team tocollaborate with the design team for the Consolidated Office Building for phase one of this public art project. Phase one has two aspects:

a)    Identifying several public art opportunities to be integrated into the future building to be included in a future call(s) for seeking artists with a range of experience, working in a range of media and who are able to create work that will inspire the many diverse communities of the City.

b)    Designing one signature artwork to be integrated into the building (to 40-50% design), and be contracted separately for the final design and fabrication of that work.

This is the first of two or more calls for artists for the City of Minneapolis Consolidated Office Building. Future calls will include a number specific public art commissions. Artists who have interest in creating individual artworks or who have no experience collaborating with the architectural design teams are encouraged to apply for the future call(s) in 2018.
