Requests for Proposals


The following RFPs will provide more than $30,000 for artists to implement creative placemaking activities. All mediums and experiences are encourages to apply. If your project idea does not fit within a category, please send a short summary to project staff. Arts education, youth groups, film, poetry and other art forms will be considered based on merit, budget and schedule.

Please contact if you have any questions.

Artists Business Partnerships:
Soliciting proposals for temporary and long term art installations, pop-up galleries, or programs within active and vacant local businesses.  Projects will enliven spaces and support the business environment. Sponsorship for materials and supplies by Community Forklift.
Art Attacks:

Soliciting dynamic art education projects that seek to engage under served community members where they live. Rather than asking participants to arrive at a specific location at a specific time, Art Attacks hope to engage community members on the spot, providing a valuable in-the-moment experience that may become the gateway into additional art education opportunities provided in the Gateway Arts District.

Soliciting performances and performance concepts by artists living and working in the Gateway Arts District.

All proposals can be submitted to:
