The City of Grand Junction has recently constructed Las Colonias Park Amphitheater. The Commission on Arts and Culture is spearheading selection of an artist to create a site-specific work of art representing the Grand Junction Lions Club at a total cost of up to $27,000.
Deadline: 1 Mar 2018
The Lions Club is a prominent philanthropic organization in the community that helped to fund this project. Since 1929, the Grand Junction Lions Club has provided over $7 million to local non-profits, charities, schools, and events in the Grand Valley. The intent of the art work is to depict the Grand Junction Lions Club in a realistic form and celebrate their participation in the community. Installation by June 29, 2018. All Colorado artists are eligible to submit.
The selection committee, comprised of the Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture, representatives from Grand Junction Lions Club, and the Grand Junction Parks and Recreation Department, will review the submissions for the Las Colonias Park Amphitheater and choose three finalists. To maximize the budget for the artwork, stipends will be $100. Finalists will have the option for a Go To Meeting rather that interview in-person. All finalists will be given equal consideration regardless of the type of interview conducted. The project budget is $27,000.
