Art in Public Places featured Artists Denise Mosley
The Green River Arts Council in cooperation with the Green River Recreation Center hosts quarterly art displays.
Jeff Castagna has artwork on display at the Green River Recreation center from April 2022 - June 2022. Pieces may be purchased through the Green River Arts Council.
The Green River Arts Council (GRAC) will be working to transform some of the power boxes in our community into public art. The Council is calling all Sweetwater County artists to submit an original work of art.
Here is how the Power Box project will work:
- Any Sweetwater County artist or photographer may submit art. If you know of an artist, please copy and pass this invitation on to them.
- Selected artists will be paid a fee of $200 for their art design. The owners of the power box will own the physical work, however, the artist will maintain ownership of the design and may reproduce it without permission from the owner of the power box or GRAC.
- The deadline for submission is May 15, 2023. Please submit your artwork via emailed to the Green River Arts Council’s City Liaison at email@example.com
- The winners will be selected the week of May 22, 2023.
- We will accept original work only; no clipart, nothing taken from the internet.
- Artists are welcome to submit a previously created piece as long as the artist owns the rights to the work.
- It is encouraged that artists create something that can be tailored to be easily formatted to the boxes. Paintings or photographs are welcome. The vinyl artwork will be placed on all four sides and possibly the top of the box.
- People should not be in a photograph.
- We welcome up to two (2) submissions per artist.
- Submissions may not contain more than 20% words.
- Submission designs should avoid a large amount (over 20%) of black color.
- Submissions should include a photo of the work being submitted and the application submission form.
- Boxes will be wrapped as weather permits.
We are looking forward to receiving your artwork! To apply, please fill out the submission form and turn it in by email.
