Call for Artist Proposals - Sculpture

Fairfax County selected the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA to facilitate the proposal, creation, and installation of a commissioned sculpture for the new South County Police Station and Animal Shelter.

The anticipated substantial completion date of the sculpture is Spring 2023. More information about the project, including renderings, can be found online.

Artist proposals are being accepted for a sculpture that will be located at the entrance to South County Police Station in order to welcome the community to the grounds and facility. The sculpture should take into account the history of Lorton and South County, relate to the facility behind it, feel welcoming and friendly, and consider the facility also provides a space designated for community use. The sculpture may be fabricated using metal and/or stone, and the base must be designed by an engineer.

The desired dimensions for the sculpture are:

  •  maximum footprint of 16 square feet (4’ wide by 4’ deep)

  • maximum 14’ in height

A maximum budget of $50,000 will be allocated for the selected proposal. Artists residing in Fairfax County and/or artists with previous experience designing sculptures of a similar scale will be given priority consideration for this project.

Timeline
