New Awards Program Seeks to Commission Local Artisan
We have a few thoughts as to what the design could include but mostly want to leave it open to the creativity of the artist. We are looking for a unique design that is a “conversation piece.” For instance, something that a local elected official can bring to a community event and discuss with citizens.
We are not looking for a 2-dimensional certificate or plaque. Environmental aspects are also preferable. For instance, the award could be made from recycled materials. The award could (but is not required to) incorporate the COG logo and/or the award program’s design.
- A 2-5 page proposal that includes the design concept and a cost proposal is due by Monday, June 30, 2014.
- Please include weblinks and/or photos of sample artwork/galleries in the proposal.
- Cost proposal should not exceed at total of $4,999.
- Submit proposals to Maia Davis (email@example.com, 202-962-3227).
The awards will need to be completed and delivered to COG by Friday, August 29, 2014.
The work of the selected artist will be authorized through a purchase order/fixed price agreement. Initial payment will be made upon award with final payment made upon delivery
of the completed awards. Total compensation will be based on the cost proposal associated with the selected artisan. If the program is continued beyond 2014, there is potential for additional commission(s) in 2015 and beyond.
