Description of Project Opportunity: Coffey Neighborhood Park Public Art
The artist or artist team selected for this project will be required to undertake research and discussion with key stakeholders and thoughtfully engage the Coffey Park neighborhood to develop a concept proposal for the public art project. From preliminary surveys of the neighborhood, residents indicate a preference for interactive and functional public art, including playground equipment and seating. The public art should be integrated into the design of the park as much as possible. Design elements should reflect the identity and resiliency of the Coffey Park neighborhood and respectfully commemorate the Tubbs Fire. The City of Santa Rosa is currently working with a design team to redesign/rebuild the park. To find out more about the status of the park, visit: http://www.srcity.org/coffey-project.
Installation will be sited at Coffey Neighborhood Park (1524 Amanda Place, Santa Rosa, CA) in Northwest Santa Rosa. The park is located at the heart of the heavily fire-damaged Coffey Park Neighborhood.
The total available funding for the project is $50,000. The funding for this public art project comes from the City of Santa Rosa Public Art Fund.
