An RFP is a Request for Proposals and is usually used for custom work that artist will design specifically for a certain location or project.  RFPs are not always art related, they are also used for construction and landscaping and many other types of work that a local government or private organization may be soliciting.

RFPs that are related to art projects are often incorporated in a published announcement as a “Call for Artists“.
