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.

OVERVIEW

The West Des Moines Public Arts Advisory Commission and Parks and Recreation Department invite regional artists (Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Wisconsin, South Dakota) to submit an Artwork Application to participate in the 9th annual Art on the Campus public art exhibit. Art on the Campus is a temporary outdoor exhibit, displayed on the West Des Moines City/School Campus from April to November each year. 

EXHIBIT DETAILS

Selected artists are paid a $2,000 stipend for the use of their artwork. 

A selection panel will choose up to 12 original works of art for installation.

The artist retains ownership of their work and agrees to loan it to the exhibit.  During the exhibit, the artwork will be covered under the City’s insurance for the retail value of the artwork; however, artists must also carry standard liability insurance coverage. Artists are required to provide proof of liability insurance if selected. 

A People’s Choice vote will be taken throughout the duration of the exhibit. When the exhibit is complete, the People’s Choice artwork will be named and shared with the public, and the People’s Choice winner will receive a $500 award.

A recognition event will be held at which members of the community, WDM City Council, WDM Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, and featured artists are invited to celebrate 2021 Art on the Campus exhibit.  Invited guests will have the opportunity to view the selected works. Artists are asked to attend and give a brief oral description of their artwork. More details to come.

The Art on the Campus exhibit will be promoted in the local media. Marketing efforts will include but not be limited to:

· An article in WDM Magazine (direct mailed to all WDM households and businesses)

· News and information on the WDM City Web Site (www.wdm.iowa.gov)

· WDM Parks and Recreation Department’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts

The Art on the Campus exhibit is a listed feature on the Otocast app, a mobile audio guide. Selected artists are required to work with Otocast staff to record a short narrative about their artwork.

*The City of West Des Moines reserves the right to photograph and reproduce images of the artwork on exhibit for promotional and educational purposes. 

EXHIBIT LOCATION

The West Des Moines City/School Campus is a centrally located area that is home to several facilities utilized by the community including an elementary school, freshmen high school, the WDM City Hall, the WDM Public Library and the WDM School District’s Learning Resource Center and the new Jamie Hurd Amphitheater. A half-mile walking trail encircles the centrally located pond. Selected works will be installed on 4’ x 4’ concrete pads that are located around the pond and adjacent to the walking trail. 

INSTALLATION OF ARTWORK

Artists are responsible for all costs, equipment, and labor necessary for the delivery, installation and removal of their work and assume all risk and damage to their work before and during installation and during and after removal. Work not appropriate for installation onto a 4’x4’ concrete base will not be allowed. Lighting and power will not be provided at the artwork locations. The artist shall affix their artwork to the concrete pad in such a way that non-authorized removal would not be possible. The City of West Des Moines will not provide labor nor equipment for install.     

SALE OF ARTWORK

Each selected piece of artwork must have a pre-determined purchase value or sale price that is set by the artist. If someone desires to purchase one of the displayed artworks, 15% of the sales price will be paid to the City of West Des Moines. These funds will provide future funding of public art in West Des Moines. The $2,000 stipend provided to the artist is not part of any sales transaction. Artwork must remain on display throughout the duration of the exhibition.

Call For Artists! SaveArtSpace + The Untitled Space + Art4Equality: Public Art Series + Exhibition
“Art4Equality x Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness”

Have your artwork on a billboard in NYC this fall! 
Deadline to submit: August 10th 

The Untitled Space, SaveArtSpace, and Art4Equality have joined forces for an empowering public art series of billboards in New York City launching this September 2020, along with an exhibition of the artwork created for the series to be presented at The Untitled Space gallery this fall. Revolving around the theme of “Art4Equality x Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness” the public art series and exhibition is now open for artist submissions via an open call curated by Indira Cesarine. Deadline to submit: August 10th. 

“What do these words mean to you: “Equality,” “Life,” “Liberty,” “The Pursuit of Happiness”? We live in an unprecedented time, our liberties robbed by a global pandemic, which laid painfully bare the inequities that have plagued the most vulnerable in our society for far too long. Political polarization in the United States is reaching critical mass with a divisive political system at war. Realities of social inequality and racial injustice are challenging our ability to have confidence in a promising future. With the 2020 elections approaching, we feel it is a crucial time to create an opportunity for artists to respond to our current situation, with the artwork presented in a public platform, where it can reach an audience of millions of people every day and promote an inclusive dialogue. The public art series “Art4Equality x Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness” seeks to empower, enlighten, and shed a ray of hope on a city that has been under a dark cloud, in a country that is in tatters not only by an invisible virus, but also by political and civil unrest. The billboard transformed into an art display is an innovative, and ultimately accessible way to present contemporary art, transforming spaces normally dedicated to advertising into public art that has power and impact.” - Curator Indira Cesarine

Artists are asked to be creative, with artwork inspired by 1 or more of the words or phrases of the theme. Each billboard will feature your artwork along with your name and the title of the artwork. The gallery exhibition will compliment the public art series with a presentation of unique and limited edition prints of the artwork. This open call is open to all artists, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, or practice. All mediums are welcome.
