1.1               Purpose

The purpose of this posting is to solicit proposals from Alaskan artists for the design and installation of artwork in designated areas within the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation's Headquarters. This solicitation is extended in accordance with Alaska Statute 35.27.020, Art requirement for public buildings and facilities, that requires at least one percent of the cost of construction to be used toward public art in the facility. This "Call for Artists (CFA)" is running as the final phase of the renovation, the building has been completed, so the art will need to fit the space's design.

In addition to a high level of artistic expertise in public art, desirable attributes of all artists making proposals include exceptional communication and collaboration skills. The intent of this CFA is to select artwork concepts of one or more artists who will then work with the Art Panel to refine and implement the selected artworks in the desired spaces.
