EXHIBIT DESIGN FOR 50TH ANNIVERSARY TRAVELING EXHIBIT
The City of Lacey is accepting proposals from qualified museum exhibit designers to design a traveling exhibit to celebrate Lacey’s 50th Anniversary. The city will be responsible for writing the text, selecting historic images and providing captions for the images. The exhibit designer may choose to include fabrication as part of their proposal, but is not required to do so.
The City of Lacey wasn’t officially incorporated until December 5, 1966. The City expects to debut this exhibit at its open house on December 5, 2016. It is expected the exhibit will travel in whole or in part to various venues for at least a year. The final destination will be the Lacey Museum where the panels will be used for many years to come.
The maximum project budget, including design, fabrication and traveling crate or packaging, is not to exceed $15,000. The exhibit designer must have at least a B.A. in history, art or related field, and a minimum of 5 years professional service designing and fabricating museum exhibits. Qualified experience may be substituted for the educational requirement.
The City of Lacey is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. Minority and women-owned firms are encouraged to submit bids.
