PROJECT SUMMARY – ARTAROUND ROSWELL 2021

Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell, Georgia invites artists to submit proposals of existing and new outdoor art works for consideration for ArtAround Roswell 2021, a Sculpture Tour; a temporary, monumental art installation to be installed at various outdoor sites in the City of Roswell, Georgia. Proposals selected through this call will be considered for exhibition during an 11-month tour from May 2021 – March 2022.

ArtAround Roswell 2021 showcases diverse and varied sculptural works, bringing joy, and improving quality of life to Roswell’s public spaces. This year, the theme for consideration for exhibition is about CONNECTION. Panelists and artists are asked to submit their proposals that feature connection –

For example:
• How does the art connect to its environment?
• How does the art connect to the place? Perhaps to history?
• What is the connection between the audience and the work?

Sculptures will be selected and installed throughout the city, including within existing parks and historical downtown Roswell. Sites may be publicly or privately owned. Existing sites and sculptures can be viewed at Art Around Roswell Tour – Roswell Arts Fund. 

This invitation is extended to all qualified artists with no entry fee. Roswell Arts Fund seeks to have a diverse and inclusive selection pool that represents the diversity and vibrancy of the Roswell communities.

Artists will receive a $2500 stipend for the loan of their work, paid in two installments ($1250 upon execution of contract, and $1250 when the artwork is deinstalled). All sculptures are available for purchase to the public unless otherwise stated but must remain installed for the entirety of the exhibition and tour.

ArtAround Roswell is a collaboration between the Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell. The sculptures are hosted by the City of Roswell, Department of Recreation and Parks and Private business owners.

ArtAround Roswell Virtual Tour RFQ
 
Application deadline: September 28, 2020 – 

Program summary:

Roswell Arts Fund, with funding provided by the Fulton County Arts & Culture, seeks to partner with a creative videographer and producer to create a virtual experience of our public art collection.

The goal is to create a digital video(s) that focuses on large-scale public art sited by Roswell Arts Fund throughout Roswell, GA.

During this time of distance and isolation, we will not only document the works, but bring new and unexpected experiences afforded by way of technology. The virtual experience will feature views of each work, including close and unusual perspectives not available to a typical viewer. This may include drone photography or any number of additional concepts.

Audio recording and documentation will also be important. Artists, community members, and leaders will be interviewed and recorded to encompass the breadth of the exhibit. Closed captioning for hearing impaired and non-english speakers must also be provided.

The completed project will debut on web and social media pages, available to view free of charge. Vignettes will be featured on social media throughout the rest of the exhibition to reach individuals that may be unable to view the exhibit in person, and to promote our work to a broader audience.

Prize summary: 
The selected party will be awarded up to $15,000 depending on negotiations of the final product
