Call for Entries, Gateway Public Art Project, City of Bloomington (Bloomington, IN)
The City of Bloomington through the Bloomington Entertainment and Arts District (BEAD) is soliciting artists or artist teams for a public art project to serve as an informal gateway to BEAD's Restaurant Row Character District, the 4th Street Arts Festival Street, and the Indiana University campus. This project is the first of several gateway installations planned for around BEAD. Artwork should respond to the site and reflect downtown as an arts and cultural destination. Materials and application techniques are not limited and may include sculpture, structural installations, lighting, etc. The size of the finished artwork is flexible, but once installed it must make a significant visual impact in the area.
All visual artists 18 and over who are residents of Indiana are invited to submit proposals. A full project description and artist selection criteria for both projects is available at www.bloomington.in.gov/arts.
Deadline for submissions is November 18, 2011. For more information, contact Miah Michaelsen, the Assistant Economic Development Director for the Arts, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (812) 349-3534.
