The Chicago Lighthouse is hosting a public art display, Lighthouses on The Mag Mile, and invites artists to participate. Chosen artists will design a provided fiberglass lighthouse sculpture, 6 foot tall by 30 inches in diameter, for The Magnificent Mile. The sculptures will illustrate what it means to be a beacon for access and inclusion for people with disabilities.
Deadline: 19 Mar 2018
Chosen artists for Lighthouses On The Mag Mile will receive a stipend of $750.00 for completing the project. Their work will be installed on The Magnificent Mile from June 19 – August 11, 2018. The artist name(s) will be on a plaque attached to the sculpture for the exhibition. Artists names and bios will be shared on a mobile app. All artwork, design materials, and artists’ statements may be used in print and electronic media for the purposes of promoting and publicizing The Chicago Lighthouse Public Art Display and may be reproduced in a book, itinerary, or other publications and communications developed by The Chicago Lighthouse.
