The City of Rome is seeking proposals for an Art Installation for the West Dominick Street Art Walk.
The City of Rome’s RFP was issued on August 15, 2023 and proposals will be received by the City until September 14, 2023.
The City of Rome is requesting proposals from any professional artist or artist teams for a Sculpture or Installation for the West Dominick Street Art District. West Dominick Street is a major commercial corridor that is home to a number of small businesses and a vibrant art community within downtown Rome. This roadway provides residents and visitors access to the Capitol Theatre Complex, restaurants, cafes and art studios. Due to the large presence of the arts and cultural district, the Erie Boulevard BOA recommended public art installations be sited along West Dominick Street as a way to promote the art community and rich history within the City of Rome.
After successfully receiving funding from the New York State Department of State under the Brownfield Opportunity Areas Program, the City is now able to implement this portion of the Erie Boulevard BOA and will site additional art installations to enhance the Art Walk Corridor in the West Dominick Street Arts District. The project seeks to use strategic placemaking via art as a way to strengthen the downtown district, ultimately attracting more visitors and residents. See RomeRises.com/w-dominickart-walk for more details.
The City of Rome is seeking an artist or team of artists to create permanent artwork to be installed in up to two (2) locations along West Dominick Street.
