Call for Temporary Public Art

Nov 22, 2017 by

Submission Deadline: December 1, 2017

Waterville Creates! Public Art Task Group invites artists to submit proposals for a temporary public art installation from May 1 through September 30 of 2018. A minimum of two artists (or groups of artists) will be selected to provide works of art for exterior display, installation, and/or performance in the City of Waterville. This invitation is open to artists whether they live within or outside of the state of Maine.

Proposals should relate to the artist’s reflections on the Kennebec River as a focal point of Waterville’s past, current, and future identity. Artists are encouraged to propose specific sites that they have identified.

All media, including performance art, sound, projection, and light installations, are eligible for consideration. The maximum stipend will be $5000; should Waterville Creates! or the City of Waterville choose to purchase a piece for permanent display, the stipend shall serve as a deposit toward the total purchase price. Any private purchase will be independent of this process and arranged directly between the purchaser and the artist.
