Call for Entry: Public Art in Basalt

At Stone Leaf, we want to promote art in the Denver and Colorado Art Community as much as possible. That’s why when this Call for Entry came to us, we wanted to pass it along!!

The town of Basalt, Colorado, is seeking an artist to create a Temporary Art Installation.

The Basalt Public Arts Commission (BPAC) announces a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for a temporary public art installation in the Town of Basalt, Colorado. This RFQ is open to artists who are residents of Colorado. This art project will open to the public in June, 2017 and be on view for two years. The deadline for artists’ submissions is September 9, 2016.

Full RFQ details and how to apply are listed on CallForEntry.org, and may be found here: bit.ly/2aXf2nJ

 “The project is envisioned as the first of a series of temporary projects that express the theme of discovering what connects our community,” BPAC Chair Nancy Lovendahl explains. The installation should encourage locals and visitors alike to walk and bike, search and seek out different aspects of the art and the Town of Basalt.

 Funded by the Town of Basalt’s “1% for the Arts” resolution, the budget for this project is $50,000, all inclusive.

 Established in 2015, The Basalt Public Arts Commission is comprised of publicly appointed citizens. The BPAC website is www.basaltpublicartscommission.com
