Eligibility:

The Dairy Arts Center in Boulder, Colorado invites artists’ proposals for a new public artwork for a permanent public art sculpture dedicated to Indigenous people in our community and region. The intent is to acknowledge the traditional Indigenous inhabitants of the land occupied by the Dairy.

“Acknowledgment is a critical public intervention, a necessary step toward honoring Native communities and enacting the much larger project of decolonization and reconciliation. Join us in adopting, calling for, and spreading this practice.” – Honor Native Land: a guide and call to acknowledgment, US Department of Arts & Culture

A selection committee of Indigenous community members, artists and activists will lead the Dairy in the review and selection of the proposals. When a final proposal is selected, the Visual Arts curator will work with and support the selected artist(s) in the production of the project, from
technical development to engagement. The completed work shall be installed in time to honor Indigenous Peoples Day, 2020. This call is open to Indigenous artists only. The selected artist will receive up to $10,000 for time and materials. Additional funding for installation or other needs will be considered.

Prizes: 

The selected artist will receive up to $10,000 for time and materials. Additional funding for installation or other needs will be considered.

engineers or art conservators) to finalize material specifications and fabrication plans

The Creative Time Emerging Artist Open Call

Application Dates: January 21 - March 15, 2020

The Creative Time Emerging Artist Open Call is back! Following the resounding success of the inaugural iteration -- which culminated in Risa Puno’s The Privilege of Escape in summer 2019 -- New York’s leading public art nonprofit is once again inviting emerging artists to submit proposals for a socially engaged public artwork.

The call is open to New York City-based, practicing artists at a pivotal juncture in their career, who have not yet received substantial support from a major cultural institution. Creative Time is most interested in ideas that take unconventional exhibition formats, speak to a pressing social issue, and engender public dialogue or debate. The project should be timely, and hold the potential to spark critical public exchange.

Proposals will be accepted between January 21 and March 15, and the selected project will be presented in New York City in 2021.

Deadline: 
03/15/2020
