Call for artists: Lander Library mural project

Request for proposals from the Fremont County Library in Lander:

The newly renovated and enlarged Fremont County Library in Lander, Wyoming was substantially completed in the spring of 2009. The Lander Library Friends Association (LLFA) is planning to make a gift to the library of a mural depicting the Lander Valley. The mural will be installed on the tray ceiling of the new addition. It will be representational in style, painted in oils or acrylics, and approximately 202 feet x 7 feet in scope. It may be painted in the mural artist’s studio and installed by a skilled wallpaper hanger. If the artist prefers to paint the mural onsite, it must be done at the library’s convenience and subject to the library’s conditions. The art piece will be on permanent display in the Lander Library, providing a lasting point of pride for the community and an opportunity for the chosen artist to have his/her work displayed on a grand scale.

Artists interested in submitting proposals to provide such services are required to follow the recommended guidelines and instructions contained in this Request for Proposals (RFP). Proposals should provide a straightforward, complete, and concise description of the artist’s achievements and capabilities. Submissions should include photographs or slides of completed projects or the URLs of Internet sites where the artist’s work can be viewed. The selection committee will choose up to five finalists from the applications. Each finalist contracted to submit a design for the mural will receive $250 to cover the expense of creating a conceptual design. Artists may be asked to make an oral presentation to the committee to clarify or elaborate on their proposal.

Proposals must be postmarked no later than 5 p.m. MST, October 30, 2009. Address all proposals to:
Rebecca Thomas, Business Manager, Fremont County Library System, 451 N. 2nd St., Lander, WY 82520.
