Courthouse Expansion (Concord, NC) – Call For Artists

Courthouse Expansion (Concord, NC) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] Cabarrus County, North Carolina is seeking artists or artist collaborations to create innovative, original, and site-specific artwork for the Cabarrus County Courthouse Expansion that is currently under construction in downtown Concord, NC.

Click here for the application / registration

Enter by: 20 Dec 2021

The Art Selection Committee for this project is seeking an artist or artist team who can understand and express, in a suspended, permanently-installed, large-scale piece, the Courthouse’s role in providing sound and fair justice. The location of the art will be in the main public lobby, where high windows afford views of the artwork from outside the building on three sides, as well as inside.

The total public art budget for the Courthouse Expansion project, including all aspects of design, fabrication, transport, and installation, is $350,000. One (1) to three (3) finalists will each receive a $2,500 stipend to cover design costs for their proposal and travel/ presentation.

About the Cabarrus County Courthouse

When completed, the new Cabarrus County Courthouse will be a 313,000 SF court facility that includes a new 240,000 SF addition to the existing 1975 courthouse. Together with the new construction, the existing 73,000 SF facility will undergo complete interior renovation and repurposing to fulfill long-term, multi-generational space requirements.

As noted in the Designers’ Narrative for the project, “While the existing courthouse fronting Union Street will be completely renovated, a new addition and public entry (off Means Ave Pedestrian Plaza) will reshape the identity of the courthouse campus. The intentional siting of this new primary entry is the defining element of the concept.”

Similarly, the artwork commissioned for this project will reshape and help define the perceptions of those entering or passing the Courthouse and frame a new experience of a ‘house of justice.’
The artwork will not only complement the architecture of the building, and provide an attraction – and distraction – for those entering; but also it shall help shift mindsets.

ART 64 (Wauwatosa, WI) – Call For Artists

ART 64 (Wauwatosa, WI) – Call For Artists

In partnership with the City of Wauwatosa and presented by North Shore Bank, NEWaukee seeks 64 artists to participate in ART 64, a four day bracket-style painting tournament taking place in various locations and businesses.

In four rounds on June 3 – 6, 2020, artists will be paired to go head-to-head and given two hours to create a work of art on a predetermined theme on a 2’x3’ canvas. Members of the public will be invited to watch the paintings come to life and vote for their favorite paintings on the ART 64 mobile application. The artist in each pairing with the most votes will advance to the next round.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 9 Mar 2020

A concept by NEWaukee’s Chief Idea Officer, Jeremy Fojut, the first ever ART 64 painting tournament is coming to Wauwatosa, Wisconsin on June 3 – 6, 2020.

The goal of ART 64 is to create an open art competition in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin that is live, performative, engaging and accessible for both artists and the general public. ART 64 is meant to be a platform for artists and small businesses to build and connect to new audiences.

ART 64 Artist Benefits

Participating ART 64 artists will each receive a $50 stipend, their 2’x3’ canvas per round, easel, and drop cloth. The final 32 artists will each receive $100, the final 16 artists will each receive $150, and the final eight (8) artists will each receive $500. In the last round, eight artists will compete for a $20,000 grand prize and an artist residency at Serendipity Labs in Wauwatosa to exhibit their work.

Following the tournament (June 3-6, 2020), NEWaukee will hold all paintings from the tournament for 30 days of exhibition in locations in the city of Wauwatosa. NEWaukee and ART 64 Advisory Council will determine uniform sale price for works. If sold, artists will receive 70% of sale and 30% commission will go to the City of Wauwatosa. If unsold after 30 days of exhibition, artists can claim works from NEWaukee (any shipping fees are the responsibility of the artist). If artists do not claim their artwork within 5 business days, the artist waives their right to their artwork and it will become the property of City of Wauwatosa to donate, repurpose, or discard.

About NEWaukee

NEWaukee is a social architecture agency that designs memorable in-person experiences that create a sense of belonging inside the communities and companies they work with.

NEWaukee calls their collective method “social architecture” – the conscious design of an environment that encourages the desired range of social behaviors leading toward a goal. Through programs and initiatives, NEWaukee motivates participants to look critically at the place in which they live, realize its potential, and empower folks to shape their own community.

This practice requires sincere thoughtfulness about inclusion and deep investment in network development prior to the production of a new program or initiative. The result of this style of work allows for meaningful buy-in from key constituents. Whether it’s engaging a specific demographic, attracting new employees, creating deeper engagement with constituents, or driving new and innovative ideas, NEWaukee’s unique method has a proven track record of success.
