Dec 14. 2015 – Cover letter and Request for Quotation mailed to artists. Jan 15, 2016 – Request for Quotation deadline due to Memorial Auditorium Performing Arts Center. Overall Project Goals: Develop public art work that is unique to Marshall. Provide a focal point for arts and education on the many varied contributions made to Marshall by its community groups and leaders; Increase the understanding and enjoyment of public art by Marshall residents as demonstrated in survey responses; Enhance Marshall with quality public art work. The community will evaluate goals and response to the sculpture by use of survey forms available at the main desk for visitors to complete. These responses will be reviewed and evaluated on an annual basis. The annual number of events and visitors to the facility will be will reviewed each year. All members of the community as well as visitors to Marshall are considered the target population of this project. Visitors to Marshall: The Marshall Convention and Visitors Bureau currently estimates that approximately 5.5 million visitors come to Marshall each year. We expect with the opening of the Red Baron Expo and Area this figure will increase.
