GRANTS PASS – The City of Grants Pass Committee on Public Art is accepting applications from local artists to participate in the return of Art Along The Rogue to be held Oct.1-3. The Art Along The Rogue subcommittee will select several featured artists, as well as multiple participation artists to create chalk and paint images on the street during the weekend event.
Artist applications are available online at: https://travelgrantspass.com/art-along-the-rogue/artist-application/
Artists must include an image of the art they hope to produce. All proposed creations must adhere to event criteria explained in the application.
Those who wish to be considered for a featured artist designation need to provide samples of previous work. Featured artists receive a stipend for their participation. Artists can also procure their own sponsors to obtain a space. Space is limited.
In addition to street painting and chalk artists, event organizers are seeking artists in a variety of other art mediums, including oil and watercolor artists, sculptors, potters, jewelry makers, mixed media artists, musicians and more to demonstrate their art making during the event and work in conjunction with planned interactive art activities designed to introduce young people to various art forms.
“The goal of the committee is to open up the event to artists of all types while exposing young people to the artistic process of the artists and providing hands-on activities for young people to experience their own art-making,” said Information Coordinator Steven Sabel.
Sabel is the city staff member serving as liaison to the Art Along The Rogue planning committee. For additional information, contact Sabel at (541)450-6011.
