Call for Public Artists - Exterior Glass Frit Design
City of Minneapolis New Public Service Building
The City of Minneapolis invites experienced artists to apply to design patterning for portions of the bird-safe glass frit for the New Public Service Building. This two-phase selection process begins with submitting qualifications. Three finalists will be selected and receive a stipend to submit preliminary designs.
The building will be at 501 Fourth Ave. S. and co-locate City employees and services currently in several sites throughout downtown Minneapolis and serve the City’s broad range of constituents. The design team for the Consolidated Office building includes the Minneapolis firm MSR (Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle) working in partnership with the international firm Henning Larsen.
This is the second of multiple calls for artists for the New Public Service Building. Future calls could include narrative murals, luminous ceilings, drinking fountains, a handrail and media works.
