[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center announces a call for artists for Warm And Cozy: Art That Comforts. The exhibit will feature artwork that captures the sensation of feeling warm, and the physical and emotional responses we have to being warm.
One of our most basic human needs, warmth, can signify comfort, security, intimacy, and community connection. Depictions of sun-drenched landscapes and intimate cozy interiors, heartfelt portraits and loving embraces, plush soft sculpture and tactile works, warm wearable art, multi-sensory installations, or nostalgic subjects and family traditions are all welcome. The artwork in this show should envelop the viewer and induce a sense of comfort, security, and contentment.

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Prince George’s Department of Parks and Recreation invites artists (meaning both individual artists and artist teams) with interest and professional experience in creating public art and site-specific commissions, to submit qualifications for exterior public art features at the Marlow Heights Community Center.
The project includes two separate components:
- A free-standing sculptural element on the plaza which must fit within a 10’x10’ area and not to exceed 18’ in height. The selected artist for the sculptural element will design, fabricate, and install the art feature, which may be glass, metal, stone, concrete, wood, mixed media, or lighting suitable for a low-maintenance exterior application.
- A functional bench enhanced by mosaic elements. Individual artists or artist teams will be selected to develop a proposal for the mosaic application to the bench. The foundation for the bench will be fabricated and installed by the project’s construction contractors and thus require close coordination with the Design/Construction Team members.
Apply by: 14 August 2023
While there is no specific requirement regarding theme or subject matter, the artworks for the Marlow Heights Community Center should have the potential for becoming landmark identifiers for the surrounding community, and be suitable for display at a family friendly facility.
Artists may submit qualifications for either or both projects; however, artist candidates will be potentially selected as a finalist to execute only one of the projects. The selected artist candidates will be invited to develop and present their proposal to the Marlow Heights Design/Construction Team and community stakeholders. A stipend of $2,000 will be paid for the development of artist project proposals.
