The Port of Kennewick is seeking an artist, or team of artists, to create the fourth phase in a series of art elements as part of an improvement plan for Clover Island.
The project will be a traditional outdoor sculpture honoring the tribal culture of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, which used the area as a winter camp decades ago.
The budget is estimated at $85,000, which covers both bronze sculpture and metal reed fabrication. Proposals must include design, fabrication, taxes and shipping/transportation costs.
The design criteria also includes a minimum of two life size bronze figures illustrating the gather and use of native vegetation and metal reproduction of the vegetation itself.
Never miss a local story.
The project is open to artists in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Deadline for proposals is Jan. 31. To obtain a project packet or for more information, contact the port at 509-531-0944 or email email@example.com.
