This came in from the State Arts Commission for those of you interested in Public Art opportunities.
Western Oregon University Art Selection Committee for the Family Science Center is looking for public Art to enhance the enjoyment of nature and natural processes and systems. As always the timeline is coming right up on February 21st. Thirty days notice seems about the norm. The budget for public are is $61,000.00. All artists and artist teams are eligible. Go to Invitation to Artists for the details.
Even though Public Art matters Public Art projects are rare. As the Public Art Network Council's Green Paper points out cities gain cultural, social, and economic value through public art, which distinguishes the history and the evolving culture of the city. Public spaces are humanized and invigorated. Freely available, public art helps connect the past, the present and the future. It creates an intersection between disciplines and between ideas.
Contributing to a public art project is a challenge for an artist or an artist team. A challenge that is worth the effort.
