Call for Proposals – Art Along the Palmetto Trail – due 3/31/12

You are invited to join Pocket Productions and Palmetto Conservation Foundation to create art along South Carolina’s Palmetto Trail. This spring, the midlands will bloom with art as we take to the trail with installations created using natural materials found along the path. 5-7 artists with large-scale ideas will be commissioned $1,200 to create original pieces on the Peak to Prosperity and Columbia portions of the Palmetto Trail.

Everyone is encouraged to apply.

The installations should be site-specific and primarily made from materials found along the Palmetto Trail.

The artists whose proposals are selected will share their ideas with the public on May 11 at the opening, “Playing After Dark: Art On the Trail,” and on May 26 at the Alston Trailhead during the unveiling of the installations. Volunteers will help the artists to collect materials and carry out their plans during the month of May. When evaluating proposals, criteria considered will include: site-specific plans, use of Palmetto Trail materials, experience producing art installations, and time frame. Prospective artists are invited to attend a Q&A session at the Peak to Prosperity location on March 24 (transportation will be provided). Invited artists will be asked to attend an information session at the beginning of May at the installation site.

Share your imagination, mingle with our natural world, and reflect the beauty around you.

This project is funded in part by the City of Columbia.
