Art on the Streets

Deadline: March 1, 2010 by 5:00 p.m. MST (RECEIVE)

Art on the Streets

Colorado Springs, CO
June 18, 2010 to May, 2011

In its twelfth year,Art on the Streets (AOTS) is a year long venue to showcase the works of new as well as celebrated artists from across the nation while enlivening the Downtown Colorado Springs cityscape and urban experience.

A wide range of artistic expression, varied talent and cultural context are primary AOTS objectives. While sculpture tends to dominate the entry pool, other types of public art suitable for outdoor display are highly encouraged. Large-scale, outside-the-box, can’t-be-missed pieces are desirable. The only common denominator among selected works is the durability, safety and quality of the art.

Total number of selected pieces depends on the scope and quality of entries; however, approximately 8-12 pieces typically make up the show. Juror Jan Schall will announce all of the selections and personally introduce the award winners at the June 18, 2010 opening reception. The exhibit will run through May of 2011.

Entry Submissions:
• Artists may enter two works, with a suggested minimum dimension of 3 feet, vertical or horizontal, and scaled to outdoor spaces. Artists should consider that their work will be exhibited outdoors and accessible to the public for a period of approximately 11 months.
• Proposals using alternative materials, and/or creative use of space is encouraged. Please call to discuss if you have questions.
• Submission materials should be presented in one packet (no proposals sent via email) in a Word or .pdf document with JPEG images burned to a CD or DVD.

Non-refundable entry fee: $25

Art on the Streets Awards: First Prize $15,000, Second Prize $7,500, Third Prize $2,500; Plus $400 honoraria to each artist for installation assistance and one night complementary lodging per artist for attendance at opening reception.
