Naples Botanical Garden is currently accepting proposals to design and install a sculpture as the central location for future memorial and tribute donation recognition within the Garden. In addition to the sculpture, the design of 3 unique recognition ‘hangers’ to displaying memorial and tribute names will be requested for this proposal.
The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit proposals from various candidate artists, conduct a fair and extensive evaluation based on criteria listed, and select the candidate who best addresses the goals of the project. We request competitive proposals to ensure we are good stewards of our donors’ money.
Naples Botanical Garden is a 170-acre world-class garden paradise whose mission is to Conserve & Discover and Engage & Inspire. The Garden is a relatively new institution. It was founded in 1993 and gained 501(c)(3) status in 1994. We are the youngest garden in history to receive the American Public Gardens Association’s prestigious “Award for Garden Excellence.” The Garden opened to visitors in 2009 with three display gardens. It quickly became a favorite place of many and now welcomes over 230,000 visitors annually.
