The City of Grants Pass, along with Josephine County Transit (JCT), and program sponsor Republic Services, is inviting artists 18 years of age and older to submit original artwork for the “Art in Motion” program.
This public art project is essentially a gallery on wheels; selected pieces will be displayed on 54” x 34” vinyl prints on both sides of one of the Josephine Community Transit buses. The art is there to engage people, expand public art visibility, create opportunities for the community to experience art in everyday life, and enhance the overall artistic climate of the City of Grants Pass.
This proposal solicits submissions for two exhibition periods. The first is from May through August 2023, and the second is from September through December 2023. The work will be selected based on originality, artistic conception, and quality. One or two artists may be chosen for each exhibition period. A stipend of $200.00 for each artist chosen.
All artists working in, but not limited to, the following disciplines are invited to submit images of their work: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, digital graphics, engravings, sculpture, glass, wood, metal/jewelry, ceramics, fiber arts, mixed media, and assemblage. All work submitted must be original, with no copied work, no classwork, or work done under supervision.
Artwork should be visually appealing and highlight Grants Pass as the cultural art hub of Southern Oregon.
The deadline to apply is 5 PM, April 10, 2023.
