Gowin received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1974, National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships in 1977 and 1979, a Pew Fellowship in the Arts in 1993, and the President’s award for Distinguished Teaching in 1997. He retired from the visual arts department at Princeton in 2010.

Presented in partnership with the High Museum of Art.”

Project dates:  September 25th to October 31, 2011
Entry fee:  FREE

“ACP produces a Public Art Project as a central component of our month-long, city-wide celebration of photography each October.  ACP’s acclaimed program of public art has featured temporary projects in a variety of diverse locations throughout Atlanta.  The program’s significance is in its ability to reach beyond the audience of traditional art venues and expand the way the audience considers and perceives photography and “lens-based” media.  We are looking for proposals that take advantage of public art’s ability to reach new audiences, and to create an experience that is a dynamic hybrid of art in the public sphere.”

Media & Materials
“No restrictions in terms of materials or media have been established in order to ensure maximum creativity for participating artists.  However, since ACP is an organization that promotes all things photographic, it is a requirement that your project involve lens-based media as an integral part of the piece….”

“The $10,000 budget is all-inclusive, covering design, construction and/or fabrication, transportation, delivery, site preparation, lighting (if applicable), insurance, consultant fees, installation and de-installation at the conclusion of the project.  Artist’s travel (if applicable) and all other costs associated with the project (including Artist’s fee) are included in this amount.  If the proposed budget exceeds $10,000, artist must detail how the overage will be funded.”
