Request for Proposals - Art Consultant

Under this Request for Proposals (“RFP”), the Library, Arts & Culture Department (“Library”) of the City of Glendale (“City”)— on behalf of the City’s Arts & Culture Commission (ACC)— is seeking proposals from an appropriately qualified, highly motivated and innovative Art Consultant (“Consultant”) to strategically procure and manage the commission of up to ten (10) long-term to permanent pieces of artwork (“Consultant’s Services”) with the goal of visually unifying the City of Glendale.


Qualified art consultants are individuals who have completed commissions in the last 5 years with government (or public agency) percent for art programs. Experience in working with municipalities that have an arts program is highly desirable, but not required. Candidates based in California, who have completed projects relating to the built environment within Los Angeles County, will be given priority consideration. The Target date for completing the installations is Fall 2022.
