Call for Artists: Outdoor Environmental Sculpture Installations
From the Ground Up
The City of Shoreline is pleased to announce the debut of From the Ground Up, a temporary Outdoor Sculpture Installation Project focusing on short-term environmental, and possibly interactive, artwork to enliven public spaces. Artwork must use natural and/or re-cycled materials. Locations for these projects may be proposed by the artist, an artist and business team, and/or selected by the City. They may include locations along the Interurban Trail, in City parks or other publicly visible spaces. These spaces may have trees, but rarely other stationary armatures. Work may be displayed for a one to six months, depending on the nature and location of the work. Installation and removal of the artwork will be the sole responsibility of the artist. Each space will be limited to a maximum of 15 feet by 15 feet with some possible variation in size and form as suggested by the specific site. Artwork with opportunities for audience interaction either during or after installation will be given priority.
Proposals due to City of Shoreline by April 8, 2013.
