Call for Artists (RFQ): Tittle McFadden Public Safety Center Public Art
Deadline for Application: Sept. 30, 2023, 11:59 p.m. (Mountain Time)

The City of Lewisville, Texas, is currently constructing the Tittle McFadden Public Safety Center. Completion is expected to be during the first quarter of 2025. The City Council, city management, and the appointed Arts Advisory Board have a strong desire to accent the new facility with a visually striking exterior public art installation outside the building’s entrance. The placement and vision of the project lends itself to sculpture or similarly durable artwork in a range of materials proven able to withstand the extremes of Texas weather, with sufficient visual appeal to be seen from nearby streets and to complement the scale and architecture of the building.

Project Budget: $320,000 USD (inclusive of the full scope of the project as outlined in the full call details.)

Eligibility: This is a national and international call and request for proposal. Artists may apply as a single artist or as a multi-person collaborative group. In the case of a group, please apply under one single application.

Entry Deadline: September 30, 2023, 11:59 p.m. (Mountain Time)

Contact: Denise Helbing, Arts Center Manager, 972.219.8478, [email protected]

The selection panel is looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind, monument-sized artwork that is appropriate for placement in front of a public safety facility and for the diverse Lewisville community. Our vision is for something in a contemporary style that is visually striking and can be seen from the nearby intersection of Main Street and Valley Parkway. It is not required that the theme of the artwork be directly connected to public safety functions and imagery, or to Lewisville or Texas history.

To apply to this call, applicants will be asked to submit a statement of interest and explanation of why this project interests you, up to eight digital images of past work, and a résumé or CV. The statement of interest should not be longer than 3,000 characters. All application materials will need to be submitted via (CaFÉ™).
