Call for Artists: 911 MEMORIAL SCULPTURE


The City of Elmhurst, City of Elmhurst’s Fire Department, and the Elmhurst Public Arts Commission are seeking proposals from emerging and established Midwest artists for an outdoor sculpture dedicated to the heroes of September 11, 2001. The proposed memorial sculpture must include a 13.5-foot piece of steel rail (provided by the Elmhurst Fire Department) from the World Trade Center, which should be the focal point of the sculpture. The entire memorial site (landscaping) will also include a timeline of the events that happened throughout that solemn day. The memorial sculpture will give the residents of Elmhurst, as well as many other visitors, a place at which to reflect on this significant day in our Country’s history. It will be available for viewing year-round, and be placed in front of Elmhurst Fire Station #2 and adjacent to York Street, a main north/south thoroughfare. The purpose of the Memorial Sculpture is to ensure that the community will have an enduring source of remembrance of the events of September 11, 2001. Click here to find out more.

Questions regarding this RFP may be sent to Breanne White ( by September 1, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. CST
