City of Burlingame Request for Qualifications (RFQ)

Public Art Project

Purpose: To select two to three artists who would proceed to the RFP process (Request for

Proposals). The finalists will be notified by 04/11/18 by email.

Issued: 03/05/18

Entry Deadline: 03/23/18


Project Overview: The City of Burlingame seeks a professional visual artist to create the City’s

most important public artwork to date in the spirit of Burlingame’s namesake Anson Burlingame.

The project was inspired by the upcoming sesquicentennial of the Burlingame Treaty in 2018. In

addition to being timeless, the artwork is to commemorate the values and spirit of Anson

Burlingame (as opposed to the man himself) and evolve a sense of placemaking within the

community. It is important that the selected artist engages with the history and culture of

Burlingame. The artwork should equally embrace both aesthetics and content. To this end, the

artist will work with a steering committee that will provide community input, along with other

information relevant to the culture of Burlingame and desired oversight of the project. Up to

three artists will be selected to move on to the request for proposal stage (RFP) where they will

each receive a $1,500 payment for their proposal. The selection committee will then select one

artist to move forward with this project.

Budget: $100,000 for artist fee, design, materials, fabrication, and installation.
