Seeking professional artists with all of the following qualifications:  

  • Demonstrated experience realizing permanent, large scale exterior public sculpture in low maintenance, highly durable materials. Must have successfully completed at least three exterior public art commissions with budgets of over $50,000.  Please note that this number is for qualifications purposes only and not the budget for the art piece as it has not yet been established out of the entire entrance construction budget.
  • Experience working with private developers to create site-specific exterior public art in a residential housing development setting.
  • Demonstrated success creating artwork incorporated into traffic medians or traffic circles, addressing issues such as local and state code, traffic sight lines, integration with public utilities, irrigation and lighting systems, maintenance and other issues unique to such sites.
  • Experience with in-depth community engagement with diverse community members and other key stakeholders.
  • Extensive experience working in collaboration with complex project teams including engineers, developers, landscape architects, community groups and government agencies such as departments of planning and permitting and departments of transportation.
  • Available to begin work immediately and to meet the demands of a fast-track design process.  A $1,000 stipend will be paid to finalists to cover the expense of travel and a design proposal; no additional funding will be available for this phase.

Due to an accelerated construction schedule, finalist proposals must include detailed plans for foundations/footings appropriate to the site and to the requirements of the State of Maryland. Foundations will be excavated and poured well in advance of the sculpture’s installation.

Sited at the main entry to the residential ‘villages’ clustered around Lake Linganore, the proposed sculpture should reinforce the values of the community, both physically and symbolically, acting as both landmark and gateway.

Founded in 1968 by J. William Brosius, Lake Linganore is a planned community comprised of 15 villages surrounding a system of small lakes, the largest being Lake Linganore. The villages are connected by a series of small roads and an extensive network of trails, with plenty of open space and opportunities for natural recreation. Some of the original, built elements of the community were designed by the architect E. Fay Jones. Jones apprenticed with Frank Lloyd Wright, and an Arts and Crafts theme continues to inform the design aesthetic.

 For additional community and background information:

 Artists should submit the following:

  1.  10 images
  2.  Image Description List, including all agencies artist worked with on the commission
  3.  Resume (No more than 4 pages; attached as a PDF)
  4.  250 Word Statement of Interest
  5.  250 Word Artist Statement
  6.  Four references

Location/Context History

The Asian American Monument Committee of New Mexico requests artists or artists’ teams to submit qualifications for designing a public art sculpture budgeted for $265,000 in honor of the landmark civil rights ruling from Territory v Yee Shun (1882) which affirmed the competency of Chinese Americans to testify in court and have their testimony accepted.  For additional information on the history of the case, email Successful applicants will demonstrate:

  1. Cultural competency

  2.  An understanding of this court case and why it is still relevant to all Americans today. 

  3. A broad history of Chinese Americans using the judicial system to advance and protect civil rights

  4. Relevance to all Americans today.


The site for the sculpture is the urban environment in downtown Albuquerque at the Second Judicial District Courthouse in Albuquerque New Mexico at 400 Lomas Blvd NW, 87102.  The sculpture will be located on the west side of the court house.  (See attached photos.)

Project Intent/Theme:

The intent of this sculpture is to commemorate the landmark historic Chinese American civil rights ruling, Territory of New Mexico v. Yee Shun (1882).  This monument also honors the citizens and the legal system of New Mexico which recognizes that ‘justice and liberty for all’ is a principle for all ages and people. The sculpture should reflect the tenacity of the human spirit and speak to all people – not just Asian Americans, but could include elements of Asian American Culture. 


The committee seeks artists or artist teams who are proficient in large scale abstract sculpture who can evoke a contemplative and inviting space with their designs.  The size of the artwork should be proportionate to the scale of the courthouse and sidewalk and address the interactive and pedestrian nature of the location. Public safety is a concern. The artwork should not pose a threat of injury of any persons who may come in contact with the piece.

Project Funds:

$265,000 available to commission a work of art on the west side of the Second Judicial Courthouse - $255,000 from the New Mexico State Legislature and $10,000 from the City of Albuquerque.  A stipend of $2,000 will be provided to each of the three finalists to present their designs in person in Albuquerque, New Mexico


The call is open for 60 days, three finalists will have 60 days to prepare their designs before presenting to the Asian American Monument Committee and the community in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
