3 Additional Opportunities for Sculptors with April Deadlines

Some of these calls have residency requirements, one is a registry that could lead to numerous sculpture opportunities.

Be sure to check out other opportunities for sculptors that are still open in our previous Call for Artists post


Art in Public Places: Colorado Mesa University

Grand Junction, Colorado

Summary: Colorado Mesa University is looking to acquire multiple artworks from multiple artists for the Health Sciences building. Due to the building’s design and limited floor space, 2D works are the main format of artwork that will be considered. Works may include relief sculpture, as long as they are wall-mounted and do not protrude more than 4″.

There are also a few opportunities for 3D artworks and sculpture for the building. Exterior areas include the exterior entrance of the building and multiple outdoor pavilion areas. If submitting a 3D artwork for one of these sites, please note that the listed price should include all relevant installation costs or necessary display elements

Budget: $77,000

Deadline: 4/24/18 11:59p.m. Mountain Time Zone

How to apply: via CaFE.org

Eligibility Requirements: open only to Colorado and Utah residents

Special Notes: The Selection Committee will consider artworks of all media, including but not limited to, paintings, photography, mixed media, and fabric. There are a few different wall sizes available to hang artwork in the building, so artworks of various sizes will be considered.

The building has several hallways that can accommodate artwork of varying sizes, as well as a large student lounge that has space for multiple works. These large walls can accommodate artwork up to 8′ long by 10′ wide. There are also smaller wall spaces available for artworks in the student lounge, hallways, and conference rooms in the buildings. There are also a few opportunities for 3D artworks and sculpture for the building.

Exterior areas include the exterior entrance of the building and multiple outdoor pavilion areas. If submitting a 3D artwork for one of these sites, please note that the listed price should include all relevant installation costs or necessary display elements. The Selection Committee would like artists to consider the building’s use as the home of the nursing and medical technology departments when submitting available works.

The Committee would also like submitting artists to note the contemporary design and nature of the building.

Homewise Orpheum Community Hub Mural

Albuquerque, NM

Summary: The City of Albuquerque Arts Board and Homewise seek mural proposals for the north facing wall. The design should activate the entire indicated wall area, and represent an awareness of current mural production in both application and material handling. The selection committee for this commission encourages themes exploring/ or inspired by the human element of a neighborhood, culture, place, landmark or idea of ‘home’ in this location. However, the committee is interested in seeking a range of artistic perspectives as it relates to the site, and considering the multiple-use history of its past, present and future. The mural will be an anchor and focal point, as a main entry/ exit gateway to the Barelas Neighborhood. Successful entries will be judged on aesthetic vision, excellence of past projects and suitability for the site. Full colored imagery that is uplifting, celebratory and inspires a desire to embrace this old economic hub into a new point of growth for the community will be favorable. All styles and technical approached will be considered for successful expression of the theme.

Budget:

$13,000.00 is available from the Albuquerque Public Art Program for the selected artist or artist’s team. All travel and lodging, equipment rental, supplies and fabrication of the final mural design on the wall will be responsibility of the artist.
$15,000.00 is available from Homewise for the selected artist or artist’s team as matching funds to the project budget by the Albuquerque Public Art Program.

Deadline: midnight, Sunday, April 29th, 2018

How to apply: via CaFE.org

Eligibility Requirements: Open to individual artists/artist’s teams 18 years of age and older who are current residents of the greater metropolitan area of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County.

Special Notes: Up to 4 finalists will be paid by the Albuquerque Public Art Program – a $500.00 design stipend upon selection as a finalist to develop a site specific artwork design, from which a commissioned winner will be selected.
