ArtSmart’s Creative Education Station: A Call to Artists

Posted by

The Pearson Lakes Art Center (PLAC) in Okoboji, IA, in partnership with the AWC Family Foundation, seeks an artist/designer to develop a site-specific hands-on, low-tech interactive art station for PLAC’s ArtSmart Interactive Gallery.

The selected artist/designer will work with the PLAC staff to create an interactive learning station that address one or more Elements of Art (Color, Line, Shape, Texture, Value, Space) and serves to connect the mission of the PLAC, AWC Family Foundation, and the community.

Applicants will ideally have specific skills designing, and potential skills in fabricating and installing artwork in one or more of these media: metal, plexiglass, stone, concrete, ceramic, wood, light, surface treatment, sustainable design, and/ or environmental design.

The selected artist/designer should be able to work with architectural plans and have an interest in working cooperatively with design professionals and PLAC staff. Artists should have experience working within the public process, in public settings, as well as a proven ability to fabricate their own work or to work with fabricators and installers. We encourage artists whose work addresses issues of sustainability and “green” design to consider applying for this project.

This opportunity is open to an artist/designer/business residing in the six state area (IA, MN, SD, WI, IL, NE). The request for proposal application deadline is June 5th, 2014 (12 noon- Central Time). Winner will be notified by June 12th, 2014.
