Art on the Streets turns 15 this summer, and its organizers are looking for artists to contribute to this year's outdoor public art display.
Any entry should be durable enough to stand up outdoors, and appropriate for a public setting. Plus, it should be fairly large — the call suggests three feet (vertical or horizontal), minimum. Artists should submit mock-ups or images of the work, a plan for installation, an artist's statement and a narrative description of the work. According to the application, "proposals using alternative materials, and/or creative use of space is encouraged."
As usual, the awards for the top works are generous: $15,000 for first prize, $7,500 for second prize and $2,500 for third prize. The honors will be decided by exhibit juror Blake Milteer, museum director for the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.
The deadline for submissions is March 4; artists will be notified March 15, and the works will go on display in June, the same time the awards will be announced.
