The City of Ketchum, Idaho, invites experienced artists to apply for a “Cover Art” public art project. Artwork by one selected artist will be transferred to vinyl and applied (wrapped) on three garage doors on the exterior of the Recreation Building at the City of Ketchum’s Atkinson Park. The intention of the project is to use public infrastructure as a canvas to enliven the community with art. The Recreation Building faces a heavily-used playground on the grounds of Hemingway STEAM School, a school for students in grades K–8, and the garage doors are seen by hundreds of playground and park users every day.
Deadline: 14 Jan 2021
The Cover Art Project began in 2012. During the inaugural year, the Ketchum Arts Commission (KAC) wrapped six utility boxes in four locations in the City of Ketchum. Since that time the city has added an additional 12 boxes to its Cover Art collection. Between 2014 and 2018, Ketchum, in collaboration with the Sun Valley Company, the US Forest Service, and the USDI Bureau of Land Management, wrapped three gondola cars on Bald Mountain. Cover Art projects in and around Ketchum continue to be very popular with area residents and visitors.
The selected artist will receive an artist fee of $1800. It is payable in two installments: $900 upon the City of Ketchum’s receipt of a signed artist contract; $900 upon installation of the final artwork onto the garage doors. Artist is responsible for all costs associated with photography of original artwork in preparation for transfer to vinyl wrap.
