The Town of Crested Butte, in partnership with the Crested Butte Creative District, is issuing a request for qualifications (RFQ) for artists or graphic designers to create unique, one-of-a-kind graphics in a variety of mediums for the Town’s new Comprehensive Plan, titled Crested Butte’s 2020 Community Compass. This Community Compass will be a guiding document for the Town’s Policies over the next 10-20 years and the featured artists work will live on to serve as visual reminder to the Town’s residents on our values and goals for the future. 

The Town and Creative District are seeking qualified local artists to create unique, artistic graphics in a variety of mediums to be featured in the plan that are representative of the community of Crested Butte. Three selected artist will each receive a $1,250 stipend to create the digital image (which may be a digitized image of any artistic medium). The Town and Creative District will retain the rights to use the image within the Compass, advertising for events and public meetings, and for other Town or Creative District projects. The artist will retain the physical medium and the rights to sell the artwork or graphic. However, a 25% commission in the in the event of sale of the artwork will go to the Creative District to support programming or future projects including but not limited to their youth arts education fund or local arts education programs.

Proposals are due by:
