The commission can be a combination of 2D and 3D wall-based elements, with a requirement for the integration of LED lighting in order to achieve a day-night presence. The budget for five artists to create a Concept Design is $1500 per artist. The commissioning budget for this exciting public artwork opportunity is $155,000.
