Public Art RFP EcoArts Sculpture Walk
NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
International Deadline: March 30, 2020 – Middletown Art Center is seeking artists interested in responding to the natural environment of Middletown County Trailside Park through materials and content. The park was incinerated in the 2015 Valley Fire and about 40,000 trees were lost and removed.
Your participation is a unique opportunity to address continuous recovery through thoughtful artistry and/or restoration. While nature is recovering, in an awe-inspiring manner, this 15th year of the Sculpture Walk, our primary purpose remains supporting revitalization of the land, mending of damaged ecosystems within, and dialogue with nature.
Projects will integrate the spirit and materials of the park and the place that is Lake County, California.
Some installation stipends are available, especially if community can be involved in completing the work.
Installation will be May 12 through May 29.
Sculptures are generally de-installed Nov 1, however, works that have a positive impact on the natural environment may be approved to remain in the park.
Work must remain in the park through the duration of the exhibit. If work is sold through the EcoArts exhibit, there will be a 20% commission for EcoArts. All funds support the Sculpture Walk, installation, reception, PR materials and maintenance.
Artists seeking to propose work are encouraged to go to MiddletownArtCenter.org/ecoarts to view videos and images of work from the 2019 Sculpture Walk. If possible, please visit the park which is open dawn to dusk daily at 21435 Dry Creek Cutoff to get a sense of the natural environment.
