The City of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture has announced that they will be collecting submissions of artwork to be selected for a public art project in downtown Phoenix.
The office has requested that artists, community members, art advocates and more consider this opportunity to have their art featured in a prominent location. The city is looking for competitive submissions of artwork that could be selected for inclusion in a digital projection public art project in the city center. According to the city, the project will be temporary and interactive.
The City is encouraging emerging artists, non-digital artists and fine artists to apply. The submissions will require collaboration with digital minds to translate their art into new media. The Office of Arts and Culture is looking for creativity and innovation.
For interested applicants and artists, there will be a pre-submittal meeting next week on Wednesday, November 16 at 6:30 pm. This meeting will be held at the Pulliam Auditorium in the Burton Barr Library (1221 N. Central Avenue, Phoenix).
The submissions will be due November 28, 2016 at 5 pm.
