TRENTON, N.J. -- The Mercer County Division of Culture & Heritage announces that Mercer County will be posting a public art Request for Qualifications on the CaFÉ (Call for Entry) website in March 2017.

The County is seeking proposals from an artist or artist team to design five decorative elements for an exterior wall near the main (South Warren Street) entrance of the new Mercer County Courthouse in Trenton.

The initial Request for Qualifications for this project will be offered only through the CaFÉ site, which is also used by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts for the Council’s Arts Inclusion opportunities. Artists interested in submitting qualifications for this RFQ are encouraged to immediately set up a free artist’s account on CaFÉ. This free registration gives artists access to monthly listings of public arts project opportunities in New Jersey and across the nation.

Through CaFE, artists can upload up to 100 images of their work, as well as their resumes, bios and other materials that can be used in applying for commissions announced through the website.

Questions regarding the “Call for Artists” for this RFQ may be directed through CaFE once the call is posted. Artists wishing to be alerted when the RFQ is formally posted may send their email information to
