The General Services Administration (GSA) Art in Architecture Program commissions American artists (citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents or Permanent Workers of the United States) to create publicly scaled and permanently installed artworks for federal buildings nationwide. GSA announces an opportunity for a federal art commission in conjunction with the New Construction of a U. S. Courthouse in San Antonio, Texas. GSA will construct a new U. S. Courthouse to meet the needs of its various tenants: U. S. Courts, U. S. Marshals, U. S. Probation, U. S. Pretrial, and several other agencies. It will include the design and construction of a new, approximately 304,000 square foot Federal courthouse GSA generally allocates one-half of one percent of the estimated construction costs for new or modernized federal buildings for art commissions. The art budget for this New Courthouse project is currently estimated to be approximately $400,000.00. One or more artists will be awarded a fixed-price contract for a commission Artists who wish to be considered for this and all future GSA art commissions must submit application materials to GSA's National Artists Registry (Registry). The Registry constitutes the qualified list of artists for this and all GSA commissions. Instructions on how to join the Registry are available on the following Web site: www.gsa.gov/artinarchitecture All artists who wish to be considered as candidates for a commission at the New U. S. Courthouse in San Antonio, Texas, must have their application materials submitted and received by GSA by 3:00 PM Eastern Time on December 9, 2011. Artists' submissions received after the deadline will not be considered for this project, but will be eligible for consideration on future GSA commissions alongside the other artists on the Registry. Artists already on the Registry need not resubmit, but may elect to update their information prior to the deadline GSA evaluates artists based on the following criteria: the media, materials, content, style, and scope of the artist's past work, along with the artist's past performance and experience with commissions or projects similar to the one described in this synopsis. Short-listed artists will be contacted and asked to submit additional information including a price proposal for the contemplated project.. GSA has determined that the combined weight of all the technical selection criteria is significantly more important than price At a minimum, the scope of services for this commission will require: collaboration with the lead designer selected for the building project; development of preliminary and final concepts; fabrication of the artwork; participation in meetings and conservation reviews as necessary; and the installation of the artwork at the project site.
