About the Series
If you wonder what it takes to make the leap from small-scale studio art to large scale public art, this three-part series of workshops will provide some answers. The series will break down the process of turning ideas into public works, from presentations and proposals through collaborations and the development of designs. Each workshop will feature a presentation by a local artist, a question and answer session with Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture (POAC) staff, and a brief workshop for participants. The workshops are free and open to the public courtesy of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, Arizona Commission on the Arts and the Phoenix Art Museum.

Deadline March 7th: ACP Public Art Project 2011 request for proposals

Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) announces a Request for Artist’s Proposals for its 2011 temporary Public Art Project.

Postmark deadline:  Extended to March 7, 2011!
Selection notification:  Mid to late March
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.”
