waiting for “the call”

1 Mar

public art. the world would be so blah without it. sometimes, you may not even notice it’s there. phoenix has actually become pretty big on public art incorporating pieces in pedestrian bridges, parks, tunnels, even transit stops. artists have the gift of creativity and the beauty of that is…it’s a “big-ticket” item. you grab an engineer, he’ll build a bridge. you grab an engineer and team him up with an artists and they’ll make a piece of art that’s used as a bridge. cities all across the country are putting out calls to artists to help with different projects and art programs. i found a site linking hundreds of calls to artists here.

here’s a few examples of some of the interesting calls:

“NYCDOT sidewalks”

NYCDOT has put out a call to artists to help improve the appearance of barriers throughout the boroughs. images will be painted directly on the barriers to pleasantly surprise and welcome passerbys. They will also help foster more vibrant and attractive streets throughout the city. to apply or see additional info click here.

“art on wheels”

Tiage Wines, a wine importer and distributor based out of Washington and Oregon, are hosting an art competition to find 5 artists to design and paint the company’s delivery vans. the company is looking for artists to help the company express the portfolio’s specific focus in an artistic and memorable way. pretty cool way of doing some “mobile art“.

“draw me project”

this project is a little bit different than the others. the artist came up with the idea for the Draw Me Series to create an exchange amongst strangers by using the simple model of portraiture. this piece is intended to bridge those boundaries between stranger and is available to people all across the country and world. the youtube clip explains it all. what i love most about this project is that it brings out the inner artist in everyone!

now get out there and answer “the call”…too cheesy? maybe.
