Call for Artists! City of Emeryville’s Earth Day Celebration Recycled Art Exhibition and Purchase Award 2012
Emeryville’s Earth Day Celebration
Recycled Art Exhibition and Purchase Award 2012
Theme: “Bottles and Cans”
REQUEST FOR ARTWORK
The City of Emeryville’s Community Service Department is requesting art pieces from student, emerging and professional artists working in three-dimensional art pieces made “primarily” from recyclable beverage bottles (glass and/or plastic) and metal beverage cans. Art works must be in a format that can be safely displayed to the public and moved by the artist or artists’ team to the City of Emeryville’s Earth Day Celebration Recycled Art Exhibition on April 21, 2012 by 10:30am. Each artist must provide a written description of the artwork not to exceed one letter-sized page in paper form for display at the event (and be able to send this description electronically to the City if selected as a finalist). The artwork will be exhibited at the Earth Day Celebration Recycled Art Exhibition on 62nd Street (ie: on the pavement) between Hollis and Doyle Streets in an outdoor exhibition (rain or shine) setting on April 21, 2012 from 11:00am to 3:00pm.
Art pieces must be dropped off to the Exhibition area (62nd St between Hollis and Doyle) by 10:30am on Saturday, April 21. For more information and art piece guidelines, please click here. For more information about the Earth Day Events, click here.
The goal of the exhibition is to creatively enliven Emeryville’s Earth Day Celebration with a diverse collection of artworks made completely from recyclable beverage bottles (plastic and/or glass) and metal drinking cans to help spread the awareness of recycling and overall environmental awareness. Two artists will be selected as finalists and will have their work purchased and displayed for a one-year period (estimated to be May 2012 through May 2013). The two finalists will receive $250 each for the purchase of their artwork. Artists or Artists’ Teams not selected as finalists will not receive compensation for their work or exhibition.
