Request for Proposals: Open Call, Small Artwork(s)



The City of Petaluma Public Art Committee is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to California-based artists or artist teams for the design, fabrication, and installation of an original, durable and low-maintenance outdoor public artwork suitable for placement on city-owned property. The budget for the project is $25,000 and timeframe for project completion is 12 months or less from signing of the contract.

This RFP is intended to engage new or established artists through an ‘open’ and unconventional process that invites and maximizes creativity. The committee is open to a wide range of proposals, including work with a shorter life span than twenty-five years. There is no set theme or medium. There is no pre-selected site for the artwork. Proposals must be intended for and capable of being installed at a city-owned property.

Further details are provided at:

The deadline for RFP submissions is Monday, April 30, 5:00 p.m. (PST).
This artwork is funded by construction projects subject to the public art requirement of the zoning ordinance. For further information please contact Kevin Colin, Deputy Planning Manager, at 707-778-4314 or
