The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, through the Percent for Art program, is requesting proposals for existing and newly commissioned artwork and craftwork for the Hampton Beach State Park Redevelopment Project. This RFP is made possible through funds generated for the State Arts fund.

The well-known and much-used State Park is scheduled for major upgrades this year, including the construction of two new bathhouses at the north and south ends of the promenade, a new Seashell Complex in the center of the park to house offices and a performance space, as well as upgrades and improvements to the promenade, seawall, and parking lots.

This opportunity is open to all U.S. resident artists who have a Social Security number, and offers a chance for artists from a range of professional backgrounds who have experience with outdoor installations have their work appear in public spaces for the benefit of New Hampshire citizens.

Artists who are interested in submitting proposals are strongly encouraged to attend the On-Site Informational Meeting on Friday, May 7  from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  Tour will start at the South Beach. The meeting will include an overview of the redevelopment plans, a walking tour of the site with particular attention to areas that have been identified for artwork, and a chance to talk with the project architect, landscape architect, and representatives from the Division of Parks and Recreation as well as the State Arts Council.
