The Surprise Arts and Cultural Advisory Commission is seeking qualified artists to propose artwork for a gateway entry monument to the under-construction Public Works Operations Facility, Wastewater Treatment Facility and the Surprise-Gateway Training Center.
The artwork will be in the center of an existing roundabout near Cactus and Litchfield roads
The new 44,000-square-foot project will support public safety fleet maintenance and storage needs and consolidate Public Works Operations into one facility to aid in street maintenance, trash/recycling, traffic signal and citywide vehicle fleet operations efficiencies.
The artwork is intended to pay tribute to the critical operations that occur within this facility and the men and women that provide these services.
The city is accepting applications through Thursday, May 16. An optional pre-bid meeting has been set for Wednesday, April 10 at City Hall, 16000 N. Civic Center Plaza.
