Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Holtkamp Heating & Air has issued a request for proposals and qualifications from professional artists to submit creative ideas for a large wall mural that will appear on the side of their new headquarters on Interstate 85 at the Suwanee Gateway. The mural will transform the exterior of the new building into a highly visual landmark and source of pride for the city of Suwanee and Gwinnett County.

Although not limited to Suwanee, Gwinnett County or even Georgia residents, the artists must exhibit knowledge of and connection to the surrounding area and its history in order for their proposals to be seriously considered.

“Our goal with this project is to create a distinctive visual landmark art piece that celebrates and reflects elements of the area’s community, beauty, history and diversity,” said Suzanne Holtkamp, VP of Marketing & Operations. “Gwinnett has embraced public art, and we want to continue that trend with a creative and unique design visible from the interstate that will celebrate the arts and draw interest to the Suwanee Gateway.”

Professional artists are encouraged to visit the Holtkamp website (www.holtkamphvac.com/mural) to download line drawings, site plans, logos and other documents to assist in their proposals.

The deadline for submissions is November 30, 2018 at 5 pm. All submission details are contained within the RFP.
