Artists are not strictly limited to the North side of the building and are not required to cover the whole wall. For example, the Artspace111 team is open to a mural that wraps around to the front (West facing side) of the building, or a mural that leaves exposed brick.

Eligibility:

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.
