art palette with paint color on dry poster color texture

The city of Avondale and the Avondale Municipal Art Commission are seeking qualified artists to propose artwork that will be placed at the new fire station under construction at 127th Avenue and Van Buren Street. 

The public art will be outdoors, in a highly visible site near the east entrance of the station, viewed from the street by pedestrians and motorists. 

The piece can be either newly conceived or readily available-for-purchase artwork that will complement the site and be thematically appealing.

This public art will serve as a tribute to Avondale’s first responders, whose commitment to their profession provides life-saving services to the community. The artwork should represent first responders’ heroic, selfless sacrifices.

This call to art is open to all professional artists and artist teams whose body of work and skills or combined skill set are proven for a project of this magnitude.

Applications must be received at the Avondale City Hall, 11465 W. Civic Center Drive, Avondale, AZ 85323, by 5 p.m. Monday, May 10, or submitted electronically by registering at https://bit.ly/3aCiaTv.
