Call for ILLINOIS Artists: Quincy Veterans Home

Project Number: 040-010-115. The Art-in-Architecture Program of the Capital Development Board is pleased to announce a Request for Qualifications to Illinois professional artists to create FIVE permanent original public art pieces for the Long-Term Care Facility (LTC) at Quincy Veterans Home in Quincy, Illinois. The Quincy Veterans Home is currently undergoing a $230 million construction enhancement project to upgrade and replace many of its aging buildings and provide upgraded amenities to its veteran residents. Art will be an integral part of the entire campus. In addition to providing beauty to the built environment, artwork will provide a sense of placemaking to create an atmosphere of home and well-being for the entire Quincy Veterans Home community—residents, families, staff, and volunteers. Artists may apply for as many of the five projects as preferred. Only one portfolio package is required, even if applying for multiple projects. Up to 15 semi-finalists will be chosen from the pool of eligible artists/teams that submitted their portfolio. Each semi-finalist is paid a fee (ranging from $1,500-3,000) to develop and present a site specific design proposals. The winning artists artwork budget for each project ranges from $75,000-200,000.
