Boulder Housing Partners is accepting proposals from Artists or teams of Artists who wish to be considered for permanent art installations at the upcoming 30 Pearl mixed use development at Boulder Junction in Boulder, Colorado.
The “30 Pearl” community will consist of 285 homes (120 affordable) at the 4.6-acre site at Boulder Junction, a 160-acre redevelopment area that is being transformed into a mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented neighborhood with regional transit connections and public spaces to benefit the greater community. The site will also include commercial and outdoor spaces. The site is centrally located adjacent to Boulder Transit Center/Boulder Junction, the new Google Boulder campus, various shopping centers and residences.
With this call for proposals Boulder Housing Partners is seeking artists or teams of artists to create an original artwork for two main sites in phase one of development (Site A and Site D) Artists may apply for one or both sites. (Artists may only be selected for one site if applying for both.) Each site has potential for the artist(s) to modify/integrate additional elements of media, technology or designs to the proposed architectural plans, within the City’s form based code.
Site A - Building 2B West
Site D - Building 2A East
$10,000 - $25,000
COMMUNITY & THEME
An important theme for this project is the concept of “inclusivity” and we wish for Artists to consider this within the artwork concepts. The artwork should also evoke a sense of place making, human engagement and relationships to the built environment, the sense of local community and a respect for diverse populations. The community will have exceptional “walkability” and the use of alternative modes of transport, by foot, bike, bus or other means is at high value in not only this community but the City of Boulder.
