Truckee River Pedestrian Pathway Public Art



The City of Reno Arts & Culture Commission (RACC) invites you to submit your qualifications to be eligible for a $30,000 public art commission for the Truckee River Pedestrian Pathway in Reno, Nevada. Artists working in the United States and who have experience designing projects with a similar budget and scope are encouraged to apply. Teams of artists are welcome to apply.

Project Description:
The RACC is looking for an artist or artist team to create artwork that incorporates a painted mural and artistic lighting along the Truckee River Pedestrian Pathway at the Wells Avenue bridge. The Wells Avenue bridge spans the Truckee River and crosses over a busy pedestrian walkway. The Truckee River Pedestrian Pathway follows the Truckee River through the heart of downtown, from Idlewild Park to Sparks, Reno’s neighboring City. The pathway is used by a variety of people: walkers, runners, cyclists, and commuters. The project aims to create a safer and more welcoming environment.

Projected budget is $30,000 for the entire project. This budget is inclusive of all costs associated with the design, planning, fabrication, installation, and completion of the project. The budget includes all travel costs and insurance. This project is funded in part by a National Endowment for the Arts Grants for Art Projects grant and by the City of Reno’s 2% for Art Ordinance/Public Art Fund.
