The City of Caldwell, in partnership with Destination Caldwell has been awarded $50,000 from Together Treasure Valley for creation of the Indian Creek Musical Art Park. Together Treasure Valley, a new initiative that launched last April, unites local businesses in their mission to do good in our community and to celebrate what a great place the Treasure Valley is to live and work.
The musical art part will be located strategically in the core of Caldwell's city center between two downtown destinations -- Indian Creek Park and Indian Creek Plaza. The selected location is near the popular Indian Creek footbridge at Arthur & 7th Avenue, the heart of Caldwell's Winter Wonderland.
The design of Indian Creek Musical Art Park will include interactive musical instruments that will be built to maintain authentic, pleasing tones through decades of extensive play and exposure to nature. All instruments will be working art sculptures designed as true percussion instruments which will enhance Indian Creek's beautiful urban outdoor setting and create a full sensory experience for children and adults.
A request for qualifications for artists to design and build the musical art instruments will appear in the Idaho Press-Tribune on April 2nd and 16th, 2017; and in the Idaho Statesman on April 1, and 15th, 2017. The Request for Qualifications packet is available below. Interested artists are encouraged to send an email to Keri Smith-Sigman (email@example.com). Once an artist is selected, the City will host a community workshop to seek public input and musical art suggestions. The Indian Creek Musical Art Park is a 12-18 month project with installation of the musical playground scheduled for Spring 2018.
