Eligibility:

PROJECT NAME: Peter & Julie Cummings Library Outdoor Space
LOCATION: 2551 SW Matheson Ave., Palm City, FL 34990
Physical Address: Same as above
DUE DATE OF APPLICATION: November 8, 2019
TOTAL BUDGET: $30,000.00
ONE SENTENCE DESCRIPTION: The Martin County Public Art Advisory Committee is
seeking to purchase or commission a public artwork for the Peter & Julie Cummings
Library Outdoor Space located in Palm City.

Located on Florida's Treasure Coast, Martin County has an abundance of natural beauty,
beginning at its coastline where one may witness a giant sea turtle lumbering ashore to lay its
eggs in the sand. The rivers are wild and scenic, filled with a vast array of tropical flora and
fauna. Preservation and appreciation of the untouched splendor is of utmost importance to the
people who live, work and vacation in the area. The county seat is Stuart. The population is
approximately 155,000.

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION, SCHEDULE AND BUDGET
Artwork Description
An outdoor pavilion has recently been constructed near the northern perimeter of the library
parking lot, approachable by a 6-foot-wide sidewalk from the front entrance. This informal,
outdoor, covered space is used as an extension of the library for a variety of library programs
and is available to the public for other leisure activities.
The primary location for a public art installation is a 63’ x 8’ grassy area between a row of live
oaks bordering the parking pavement and the 6’ wide concrete sidewalk and its 1.5’ wide
grass border. Please see the attached location map and pictures. This walkway can be
enhanced but must remain ADA compliant as the pathway to the 30’ square, open, wood
pavilion with metal roof. Possible design elements could feature sensory or interactive
components, which could include low maintenance landscaping elements, along the walkway
that complement the adjacent nature preserve leading to the pavilion. This aesthetic
enhancement may have a literary theme or relate to libraries/books, may be colorful or
whimsical and should appeal to residents of all ages. Sensory or interactive components
could have a musical/auditory aspect initiated by the viewer, a visual component experience
or a combined sensory experience.
The secondary location is an open, grassy area to the west of the pavilion, separated from the
parking pavement by a row of cypress trees. This area is appropriate for a kinetic or stationary
work that is not interactive but can be passively and easily viewed and enjoyed from the
pavilion or the parking area. The space measures 24’ x 60’ and overlooks the water detention area. Kinetic components could be incorporated in either area.

SITE AND RELATED DEPARTMENT
Founded in 1957, the Martin County Library System consists of six library locations, our online
library, and strategic outreach services to childcare centers and other local organizations. The
Library connects with our residents in-person, online, over the phone, and through social
networking tools such as Facebook and Instagram. As of 2019, the Library operates with a
budget of approximately $3.8 million and 49 full time equivalent staff. Over 62% of our
residents have Library cards and approximately 19,000 people visit our six locations each
week. The Library Foundation and our Friends members support the Library through their
voices, their time, and their generous financial support. Our volunteers donate over 22,000
hours to our libraries each year, shelving books, running our bookstores, and performing
other important activities. The Library continually seeks partnership opportunities with people
and organizations throughout Martin County. Partners include the Early Learning Coalition,
the United Way, the Martin County School District, colleges and museums. Many of our
partners provide experts who share their knowledge and skills with our residents through
Library classes and workshops.
Building (or Site) Description: (General description of the building site)
The Peter & Julie Cummings Library is located in Palm City, FL and bounded by a 4 acre
upland pine and wetland preserve. This is in a residential area with 3 elementary schools, one
middle school and several golf communities serving families and retirees with some seasonal
residents. In 2009, the library was expanded to 20,000 square feet, adding a second story of
contemporary architecture to the Florida vernacular design of the original 1994 building. To
the east and north of the parking area, where this project is situated, is a large open water
detention basin.

BIG INK Large-Scale Woodblock Printing at the Morean Art Center, St. Petersburg, FL

Eligibility:

Deadline to submit a proposal: Midnight, July 22, 2019

Event Location: 719 Central Ave, St. Petersburg, FL 33701

Event Date(s): September 28-29, 2019

Event Time: 10 am - 5 pm

Public Time: 11 am - 4 pm

Event Synopsis:

BIG INK, a nationally recognized print arts organization, is traveling to the Morean Arts Center in 2019.  Morean has invited BIG INK to host a two-day event where prints will be pulled from large-scale woodblock plates.  We are seeking image proposals from emerging, mid-career, and established visual artists who would like to carve a woodblock, at least 24" x 36" inches in dimension, to print at the event.  No prior printmaking experience is required. Any artist that has an interest in print media and wants to achieve a deeper understanding of woodblock carving is welcome to apply.

Upon completing the application and being accepted, artists will have two months prior to the event to carve their design.  BIG INK has created how-to videos that guide participants through the carving process.  The series draws from invaluable technical observations made by BIG INK's directors and past participating artists.  The artists' sole responsibility is to bring a fully carved and ready to print woodblock on their assigned printing day.  All consumable materials including paper, ink, cleaning supplies and equipment are included with participation.

The event itself is an excellent way to network with other participants, plug into a growing creative community, and produce high-quality work that can later be used for sale and exhibition.

About BIG INK:

BIG INK's mission is to inspire a greater public appreciation for large-scale woodblock printmaking and extend its practice.  Founded in 2012, BIG INK was originally the brainchild of Lyell Castonguay and Carand Burnet.  Castonguay, whose personal woodblock work is often monumental in scale, wanted to organize a community of large-scale woodblock artists.  Castonguay and Burnet began to host informal gatherings at print studios around their local area.  These happenings evolved into the collaborative working model BIG INK utilizes today.  BIG INK establishes a temporary print shop on site at affiliate organizations, most often at museums, universities, art centers, studios, and galleries. Artists are selected through a call-for-entry process to attend these events and print original woodblocks at least 24” x 36” in dimension. Since the program’s inception, hundreds of artists have participated in BIG INK events across the country.

About the Morean Arts Center:

For the past one hundred years, the organization known today as the Morean Arts Center has been a resource and a destination for artists and art lovers. The Morean Arts Center’s story began in the early 20th century when a group of local artists in need of a place to work, teach and display their work connected with the Florida Winter Art School.  

The Art Club of St. Petersburg elected George F. Bartlett as the club’s first president. The club and its gallery – the first art gallery south of Atlanta – settled into space provided by the Florida Winter Art School in their building on Beach Drive. In the century that followed, the city’s population grew from approximately 7,000 to over 250,000 today. The Morean Arts Center, from those informal beginnings in 1917, has mirrored that growth and become an integral part of one of the country’s top arts destinations.  

Participant Benefits:

BIG INK events are a constructive way to collaborate in a creatively inspiring space while gaining an in-depth knowledge of how to create a large-scale woodblock print. The program is designed for printmakers who understand basic woodblock principles but want to expand their expertise and working scale. The program is also designed for those not yet trained in woodblock but whose visual aesthetic would lend itself to the medium. This includes illustrators, sculptors, designers, and painters who use bold contrast, strong outlines, and patterning. Participating in an event often inspires artists to incorporate more print work in their studio practice.

BIG INK's role is to make the production of a large-scale woodblock accessible and easy to understand. We make the experience rewarding and informative by imparting our knowledge of preferred materials and techniques. We do so through a tutorial series comprised of over 20 videos.  Step-by-step instructions guide BIG INK participants with preferred materials and methods including plywood types, image transferring, carving, creating textures, fixing mistakes, tool maintenance, incorporating power tools, and more.  BIG INK remains in contact providing guidance and technical support when needed.  At the conclusion of the event, BIG INK photographs each participant's finished print. We add this image to the bigink.org online archive. These images are used to help curate BIG INK themed exhibits at national and international art venues.

How Many Prints Are Produced?

BIG INK assists in the creation of three impressions from each participant's woodblock.  We pride ourselves on producing high-quality impressions despite that events typically happen in a community setting.  Work is printed using oil-based inks on archival paper and the quality is comparable to what you would receive working at a private studio.

What happens to the prints produced at the event?

We request ownership of one print for our archive in order to photograph your work and use it for curatorial projects.  At some point, we hope to donate these prints to a museum.  The archive consists of over 300 prints and growing.  The other two prints remain in the artists' possession.

What do I submit with my image proposal?

We ask for basic contact info, a short artist statement/bio, anticipated dimensions of your woodblock and most importantly a JPG that represents what you intend to carve.  You are welcome to submit an image from your portfolio or a new design.  Upload your image in black & white via the application on our apply page.  Please note your proposal image doesn't have to be completed on a large scale and can be drafted in your preferred medium.  Black sharpie, pen & ink, and dark pencil gives us the clearest impression of your concept.  Avoid the use of gray tones when possible. Refer to this album of past proposals for inspiration and reference.  Images must be solely created by the applicant.

What material should I use to carve my woodblock?

Artists are responsible for purchasing 1/2" cherry ply, 1/2" MDF or 3/8" Shina.  Purchase links to materials will be provided to accepted participants.

How big can I work?

Images must be at least 24” x 36” in dimension but no larger than 40” x 96” in dimension.

Fees:

It is free to submit a proposal; accepted artists pay $300 dollars to participate.  This covers all consumable materials for the event including printing ink, paper, cleaning supplies, equipment and photography.  The artist is only required to bring a fully carved block.

Scholarships:

We are unable to offer scholarships at this time. Past participants have been able to cover funding through local and state grants, The Awesome Foundation or crowd funding platforms like Kickstarter.

Other Commonly Asked Questions:

Q: Can two artists collaborate on a proposal?   A: Yes, list both names on the application.

Q: Can I submit an existing image with my proposal?  A: Yes

Q: If accepted can I change my proposal image after the fact?  A: Yes, as long as it falls within the same aesthetic.

Q: Does my proposal image have to be a certain size?  A: Your proposal image can be small.  It doesn't have to be the same size as your woodblock.

Q: Am I expected to attend both printing days?  A: No, but you’re welcome to.

Q: How many prints does each artist produce?  A: Three, one of which is archived in the BIG INK portfolio.

Q: Can I bring my own paper and print more?  A: Because we work with many artists at one time we standardize for time's sake.  There isn't enough time to print more than three impressions of your woodblock at the event.

Q: What type of paper do we use?  A: Masa

Q: What type of ink do we use?  A: Oil-based relief ink, bring an apron and wear work clothes.

Q: Do I have to bring any other materials besides my carved block?  A: No

Q: Can we print in color?  A: Because we work with many artists at one time we standardize for time's sake.  There isn't enough time and space for color printing.

Q: How do we transport the finished prints?  A: BIG INK provides newsprint to wrap the work.

Q: Do you have recommendations on where to stay?  A: We use Airbnb and quality hotels are usually located a short drive away or within walking distance.

Q: What is the best way to transport the finished block if I'm flying?  A: You may be able to ship your block directly to the venue.  Contact us directly to confirm. When shipping your block please include a return label in the package. This makes shipping your block back home simple.

Q: Can I create an edition of prints after the event?  A: Yes

Q: Can BIG INK create an edition of prints for me?  A: Yes, for a fee.

Q: Can I cut the block in half to facilitate transport to and from the venue?  A: We recommend it for images over 6 feet long. We will abut the pieces together on the press before printing.

Artist Testimonials:

"Being a professional sculptor, carving a woodcut was something that appealed to my sensibilities but was also something I'd never done.  BIG INK's step by step videos was helpful in guiding me through the process. BIG INK answered my technical questions quickly and gave me feedback on my image when I emailed photos.  I'm now taking what I learned as a BIG INK participant and integrating it back into my 3-D work." Kerry O. Furlani

"BIG INK encouraged all the participants to work together to execute their prints. The event inspired me to continue exploring scale and surface in my practice and opened up a new channel of communication with a great group of artists."  Enrique Figueredo
