Flight – Call for Artists

Posted by on March 17, 2015

Create an original art design on a large, crafted aluminum butterfly. Rotary Club of Colorado Springs will supply the butterfly and a stipend.

Call for artists application

Deadline: 10 Apr 2015

Inspire the artist in all of us. Your butterfly will be on display to the public in Colorado Springs for months.

Empower students in District 11 schools. Proceeds from the butterflies will benefit D-11 Arts & Sciences programs.

Flight is a community service initiative led by The Rotary Club of Colorado Springs to raise awareness and funding to ensure that children receive essential arts programs with the educational benefits that promote brain development, social skills, improved communication and effective learning.

Participating artists will contribute to making dreams real by transforming large-scale, blank, aluminum alloy butterfly templates into original works of art. Each transformed butterfly sculpture will be displayed around the Colorado Springs community and then auctioned off this Fall, with proceeds primarily benefiting creative arts education for children and secondarily for the Rotary Club’s Community Service Fund.

Artists will be provided:

  • $250 stipend for materials for large butterflies.
  • $150 for small butterflies.
  • Any costs incurred over these amounts should be considered a donation to Flight.
  • 10% of the auction sale price for their art piece.

Artists must:

  • Seal painted butterflies with Rotary approved automotive clear coat.
  • Seal non-painted butterflies with Rotary approved sealant.

Artists will be recognized:

  • During the community-wide exhibit on a plaque near their art piece;
  • On printed materials,
  • On the Rotary Club’s website; and
  • At the celebratory auction event.

More than one design concept may be submitted. Artists who are selected will be asked to sign an Artist Agreement.

This colorful event demonstrates the creativity of regional artists and raises awareness about the critical importance of childhood participation in art – a significant stimulus for later success in other disciplines including math, science, language, literature, and critical thinking skills.

Flight provides a positive image and metaphor for children while simultaneously raising funds for their arts and science programs. As a creative artist, your participation can help promote a healthy cocoon for every child and encourage a creative metamorphosis into all each can be!

Art pieces will be placed on display in outdoor locations for public viewing and interaction during the summer. The artist’s name and title of the art piece will be displayed near each work. In addition, a photograph of each completed piece, including the artist’s concept
description, will be available on the Rotary Club’s website. A city map will identify the exhibit location of each butterfly. ”

The heart of Rotary is our clubs—dedicated people who share a passion for both community service and friendship. Rotary brings together great minds and great hearts from nearly everywhere in the world. We are neighbors, community leaders, and global citizens uniting for the common good.

We are a service project oriented group with clubs all over the world. Collectively, we have 1.2 million members who volunteer and financially support our local service projects and global impacts.
