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 Details: 

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