CBJ looking for art proposals for Downtown wayfinding signage; deadline is Oct. 21

October 7, 2019 – News

The City and Borough of Juneau is looking for four artists to produce original art. Images of the art will be displayed on panels as part of the Downtown Wayfinding and Interpretive Elements Project. Artists can learn more during a non-mandatory pre-submittal meeting on Tuesday, October 8 at 10 a.m. in the Marine View Building 3rd floor Engineering Department conference room. Proposals are due October 21, 2019 prior to 2 p.m.

The existing wayfinding and interpretive signs in downtown Juneau are dated and CBJ is designing and installing a new system. The new system will include four panels, each one to measure 1 ft. by 3 ft. and have an image of the original artwork digitally printed on it. The art should speak to one of four themes – Juneau, Homeland of the Tlingit; Juneau, Alaska’s Capital; Geography of the Aak’w Village District; and Gold Mining in Juneau. The four artists will be selected by a six-member Art Selection Panel.
