Memorial at Montpelier - Request for Qualifications


The Montpelier Descendants Committee (“MDC”) and The Montpelier Foundation (“TMF”) are seeking letters of interest and supporting materials from qualified landscape architects, architects, and/or artists, as individuals or in teams, to develop a design for a memorial at the Montpelier Burial Ground of the Enslaved at Montpelier in Orange, Virginia. The memorial will honor those who were enslaved at James Madison’s Montpelier, and surrounding plantations owned by the Madison family and others.

Finalist design teams or individuals will be invited to meet with the MDC Memorialization Committee, and the MDC and TMF Boards to present a selection of previous work and a community engagement and design process based on past experiences.
