The Jamestown Arts Center is seeking sculptures and installations for its inaugural Outdoor Arts Experience, 2020. The Outdoor Arts Experience (OAE) is planned as a celebration of the Jamestown Arts Center’s 10th Anniversary. In partnership with other venues, the OAE will place at least 10 works at varied and diverse sites around Jamestown. In keeping with our Anniversary, we are seeking celebratory works suitable for public display in community and family-friendly locations.
In addition to finished pieces, proposed work and site-specific installations will be considered. We encourage entries in the following categories: impact/larger scale, moderate/intimate scale, intentionally functional, and all other forms of public art including but not limited to installation, new media, temporal, participatory, environmental, and mural. Additionally, we seek proposals for a collaborative work to be created at the Melrose School through an Artist-in-Residence program. Please address any application inquiries to Molly Dickinson, project manager, firstname.lastname@example.org .
Artworks will be selected by a panel consisting of community members, artists, one curator of note in the field of public art, and one JAC staff representative. In the first round of jurying, all identifying information will be removed from applications. The Outdoor Arts Experience (OAE) will provide a publicly accessible example of extraordinary arts brought to our community through outdoor installations and related arts experiences. In celebration of the JAC’s 10th anniversary, the project expresses the inclusive, embracing message that art is for everyone, the JAC is art for our community and, everyone is welcome to participate.
