Pavilion Furniture: Call for Proposals

The University of Chicago Arts + Public Life initiative has launched a call for proposals for the design and production of a suite of outdoor furniture to accompany our pavilion. Below is the call:

“The Arts + Public Life initiative seeks proposals from experienced Chicago-based artisans for the design and production of a suite of outdoor furniture to be used at a new park at 265 East Garfield Boulevard in Chicago’s Washington Park neighborhood. The furniture will complement a pavilion structure, designed by MAS Studio, that will be a main feature of the new park.

The park, pavilion, and furniture will encourage free and open activities for the community, including seniors and children, and will support community-based programming such as live theater and music. The park is expected to open in May 2015.

Proposals are due Sunday, January 18, 2015, at 11:59pm.”
