In a city still on the mend from last summer’s tragic tornado, Marshalltown is coming together once again, this time with a public art installation that will highlight the completed Police & Fire Building, at the 909 South 2nd Street.
Following a 7-0 vote by the city council, $55,000 was budgeted for a piece of art to visually elevate the new building. A week ago, a formal Request for Qualifications (RFQ) was released for a national call to artist/artist team to respond with their qualifications for the future piece. The RFQ deadline is Friday, June 14, 2019. The project is being led by the Marshalltown Public Art Committee (MPAC), a program of the Arts & Cultural Alliance created to be a resource for the city of Marshalltown
