Calling all artists – we are interested in bringing some more color to Downtown Rock Springs and need your help with our City Seat Project.
Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency (URA) is sponsoring the City Seat Project this year to place customized benches throughout Downtown Rock Springs. Area artists are encouraged to come up with their most creative designs and submit them for review. The winning applicants will create benches provided by the Rock Springs Main Street/URA. The Main Street program will also coordinate the placement and publicity.
- Applications for the City Seat Project are available at the Downtown Rock Springs office and online at www.downtownrs.com.
- Completed design applications will be returned to the Downtown Rock Springs office for review by September 8, 2014.
- A panel of community members will judge the applications and pick the winning entries. Winning artists will be provided with a $200 stipend.
- The chosen entries will then paint their designated benches which must be completed by October 18, 2014.
- A City Seat Unveiling will take place on October 25 at the Halloween Stroll, and the City will place the benches on public property in Downtown Rock Springs.
We’re involved in redevelopment of our historic downtown. We’re just starting to involve the arts in that redevelopment via murals, programs like this, sculptures and more.
