ArtAround Roswell 2021 - Request for Proposals
Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell, Georgia invites artists to submit proposals of existing and new outdoor art works for consideration for ArtAround Roswell 2021, a Sculpture Tour; a temporary, monumental art installation to be installed at various outdoor sites in the City of Roswell, Georgia.
Proposals selected through this call will be considered for exhibition during an 11-month tour from May 2021 – March 2022. ArtAround Roswell 2021 showcases diverse and varied sculptural works, bringing joy, and improving quality of life to Roswell’s public spaces. This year, the theme for consideration for exhibition is about CONNECTION. Panelists and artists are asked to submit their proposals that feature connection –
– How does the art connect to its environment?
– How does the art connect to the place? Perhaps to history?
– What is the connection between the audience and the work?
This invitation is extended to all qualified artists with no entry fee. Roswell Arts Fund seeks to have a diverse and inclusive selection pool that represents the diversity and vibrancy of the Roswell communities. Artists will receive a $2500 stipend for the loan of their work, paid in two installments. All sculptures are available for purchase to the public unless otherwise stated but must remain installed for the entirety of the exhibition and tour.
ArtAround Roswell is a collaboration between the Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell. The sculptures are hosted by the City of Roswell, Department of Recreation and Parks and Private business owners.
Community Call: Apply to be a part of a Roswell Arts Fund Public Art Selection Panel
Have you ever looked at Sentience in the Heart of Canton Street or Ask the Fish at Don White or the Ribbon bike racks at Riverside Park and wondered, “Who decided to put that there?” Answer: a selection panel made up of community members just like you!
The Public Art Program is seeking interested community members, artists, and arts professionals who live or work in Roswell to be involved in this exciting process*.
Each Selection Panel is comprised of a minimum of eight voting members with additional members added depending on the scope of the project. It is the role of the voting panelists to make decisions as a group concerning the final selection of the artist or artist team.
Roswell Arts Fund is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in all our programs, initiatives, and processes. For this reason, we request demographic information as it is important that we ensure a diversity of voices are represented in our programs and decision-making committees. Thank you for sharing information about yourself.
*Participation in this survey does not guarantee you will be asked to serve on a selection panel.
