Request for Proposal for Professional Illustration Services Rosenbach Museum & Library  


The Rosenbach Museum & Library, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is seeking to obtain paid services of a professional illustrator for an illustration to be used in print and web advertisements for its preschool program. This RFP is open to anyone.   


During the Rosenbach’s monthly preschool program, children aged 2 to 4 and their caregivers listen to a story, go on a treasure hunt through the Rosenbach brothers’  Rittenhouse Square home to discover things that relate to the story and then participate in hands-on art making activities, and creative play. We are looking for an illustration that captures the playful and creative spirit of this program.
