Call for Artists: Town Fair Plaza Mini Golf

We're looking to create a pool of qualified artists or artist teams to develop proposals to create unique mini-golf holes for a 9-hole Mini Golf Course at the plaza.

We're inviting artists in the Bay Area to submit two-dimensional plans, sketches/drawings, images, or renderings as proposals for the project. Artists/art groups will be selected to build one of four areas listed below, creating props and obstacles (e.g. tunnels, bridges, loops, etc.) and/or other sculptural elements on and around the hole. The artists/art groups is responsible for the construction, fabrication, and installation of the artwork. Letters of interest and qualifications from artists are sought in this RFP. 

We have four areas for proposal:

  • Area 1: Group of 4 putting holes with starting hole (8’x20’)
  • Area 2: 1 putting hole (8’x16’)
  • Area 3: Group of 3 putting holes (8’x16’)
  • Area 4: 1 putting hole with end hole (8’x20’)

You can also create a proposal for a single putting hole only instead of for the above-mentioned areas.
