LADCO is currently developing the Clive Mercy Wellness Campus near <br />th <br />University Avenue and 128 Street and is planning to commission both an entry feature and a <br />central art feature. Moberg works in the capacity of an art broker/liaison between artists and the <br />commissioning bodyin this case, LADCO Development. <br /> <br />TJ walked the PAAC members through the steps of a typical commissioning process. An RFQ <br />(Request for Qualifications) is first issued to a selected body of prequalified artists. Artists are <br />typically given one month to respond to the request. A stipend is typically paid to the artists <br />submittin <br />either electronic or on a disk; they do not accept slides. Moberg requires artists to submit a <br />portfolio of past works to be presented as well as concept drawings for the proposed project. He <br />advised that the PAAC should be clear that works of art included in the portfolio must be the <br />current or past employer. The artist selection panel then reviews the responses and shortlists a <br />group of artist to submit a response to a RFP (Request for Proposals) and a final artist is selected. <br />The commissioned artist is typically given up to three months to complete the work of art. When <br />asked an average cost of commissioned art, Moberg estimated a starting point of between $25K <br />and $35K for a 10-foot tall metal piece and up to $100K for a larger bronze piece. <br /> <br />Moberg shared information regarding the selection process for a commissioned work of art with <br />LADCO at the Davis Brown Tower in downtown Des Moines. Moberg then presented a second <br />PowerPoint on the Clive Mercy West Wellness Campus. LADCO is looking for more of an <br />environmental installation rather than monumental. Artist Jesse Small was commissioned who <br />has previously produced large hanging installations of galvanized metal chandeliers. Part of <br />computer generate <br /> <br />
