Nevada County Transit Services is inviting proposals from artist(s) for original artwork as part of a Transit rebranding project, and subsequent brand awareness campaign, supported by Nevada County Arts Council, and launched in anticipation of California Arts, Culture and Creativity Month in April. Nevada County is home to a culturally diverse population of residents, with a love for the arts, the outdoors, and our community. Artwork submitted in response to this Request for Proposals (RFP) should reflect what draws the artist to Nevada County, whether it be its natural beauty, the enjoyment of local culture, the fierce independence of our locals, or our rich history pre-dating the Gold Rush by thousands of years, with stewardship by the Nisenan and Washoe tribespeople. Artists are encouraged to create a visual representation of their “version” of Nevada County in the form of a design which will be displayed using the “canvas” of the Transit Services Division fleet of eleven buses in the form of a single vinyl bus wrap. We offer this opportunity as a way to mark our county’s unique status as the only rural community in California home to two state-designated California Cultural Districts.
