Art in Public Places

Request for Proposal

The City of Bentonville’s Public Art Advisory Committee is seeking proposals from artists to create a work of public art that engages the community to celebrate the city’s sesquicentennial.

The city has always had an ambitious, entrepreneurial spirit. In fact, before it was known for retail, art, or its outdoor recreation, it was known nationally for growing superior apples.

Although any public property within Bentonville could be considered, the Committee will work to find an ideal location. Recommendations are welcome. Contact Shelli Kerr ( for helpful tips to explore location options using digital maps.

All proposals must be submitted before the deadline Friday, March 31, 2022 before midnight Central time using the online application form below. Only those proposals submitted through the online application form with all required documentation uploaded will be accepted.
