The City of Keller announces a call for artists for the Rotating Sculpture Program 2020. In 2017, the Keller Public Arts Board implemented a rotating public art program for outdoor sculptures in the newly updated Old Town Keller area. A $1,500 honorarium is available for each piece selected by the Board for the fourth year of the program. The City of Keller invested over $4 million in improvements for the Old Town location, including the construction of a linear pedestrian promenade, addition of outdoor seating, and community areas and installation of 11 concrete sculpture pads.
Deadline: 6 Mar 2020
Old Town is home to an eclectic blend of restaurants and small businesses that attract a variety of visitors and provide great exposure for art in the area. For 2020, the Board will select up to 6 sculptures for a two-year exhibit beginning in June 2020. The artwork will be for sale for the duration of the exhibit with a 25% commission collected by the City of Keller. The selected artists will be recognized at the fourth annual Keller Art Walk on November 14, 2020.
Rotating Sculpture Program 2020 Artist Benefits
The restaurants and shops in Old Town attract a significant amount of pedestrian traffic that ensures daily exposure of the artwork to a variety of demographics. The program offers a $1500 honorarium to each selected artist and $500 to one Best in Show winner. Artists are recognized at and receive free booth space to promote and sell their work at the annual Keller Art Walk, which is hosted in the same Old Town Keller area where the sculptures are installed.
Selected artists are featured on the City’s website and social media. They will be allowed to offer their work for sale for the duration of the exhibit. The City provides and installs signage for each piece showing the artist’s name, artwork title, and a statement indicating the piece is for sale with a phone number for inquiries.
About the City of Keller
As part of a municipal government, Keller Public Arts is unique in that its programs and events are administered by the City Manager’s office and overseen by an appointed Public Arts Board. This arrangement differs from many cities that combine public art with parks and recreation. In Keller, the separation allows the program to stay truly art-focused. With a General Fund budget of less than $40,000 and no full-time staff, Keller Public Arts has developed innovative approaches to funding and coordinating its annual schedule of events, two rotating art programs, and special projects.
In 2015, the City implemented a Public Art Development fee that applies a .25% assessment to most development projects in Keller. The fee has resulted in approximately $70,000 additional annual arts revenue, allowing the volunteers on the Public Arts Board and city administrative personnel to expand Keller Public Arts into avenues that further the program’s mission of encouraging all forms of art in the community.

Philadelphia Sculptors, in collaboration with Da Vinci Art Alliance, invites artists working in three dimensions to submit artworks to their upcoming exhibition Subversion. Taking place at the newly renovated DVAA gallery in Philadelphia, the show encourages artists to take their passions and direct them into artwork that pushes back. You don’t need to join a march, stand behind a barrier, or be a whistleblower. As an artist you can make your art speak for you!
Deadline: 20 Jan 2020
Philadelphia Sculptors are looking for artworks that, in some form, undermine or challenge social structures, morals, traditions, authority, or any existing or established systems (including the art world). Artist and Moore College of Art and Design Professor Alice Oh will jury the entries. The exhibition will be on display from February 26 – March 22, 2020. There is a $20 submission fee for Philadelphia Sculptors and Da Vinci Art Alliance members, and a $35 fee for non-members.
Subversion Artist Benefits
One artist will receive a Best in Show award of $150. All artists will receive publicity. Sales will be actively encouraged. A 20% commission will be taken on all works sold. Artists will gain visibility in Philadelphia and through this opportunity. They will be able to express their passions and convictions on provocative topics in the company of other artists who feel as strongly as they do. Artists with strong political leanings or whose work tends to be out of the mainstream will be provided a more traditional venue that will attract wide audiences. This is a unique opportunity to show artwork that might not be accepted in other venues.
All Philadelphia Sculptors’ exhibitions are open to everyone. Calls are individually sent to organizations promoting underserved populations. Themed shows are inclusive and focus on topics geared towards social and political awareness. The theme of Subversion allows artists to comment on the systems that govern or pervade their lives. Artists who are interested in interpreting the topic through the lens of social equity will be encouraged to do so. For this show, Philadelphia Sculpotrs are partnering with the Da Vince Art Alliance, a community gallery that actively reaches out to artists who lack exhibition opportunities.

Works will remain on display for approximately two years with installation planned in May 2020 and de-installation scheduled for June 2022.
The City seeks a well-balanced exhibit of public art emphasizing a variety of styles, types, and sizes as well as a diverse pool of artists. The artist selection committee will determine specific locations for artworks within the Park grounds.
- Artistic Merit: Artists shall have substantial professional qualifications and high-quality artwork that demonstrates originality and artistic excellence. Private collectors, galleries, and museum/non-profit organizations shall have professional reputations for collecting and exhibiting high-quality artwork that shows creativity and artistic excellence.

The City of Aurora Art In Public Places Program selection panel is seeking to commission an artist for the Iliff Station Roundabout Sculpture. Create a sculptural environment composed of multiple components within this roundabout which is about 70’ in diameter. There is no public access to the roundabout, so the artwork should be designed to be viewed by car or from the various streets surrounding the site. Benches, interactive art, or highly detailed artwork would not be appropriate for this project.
Deadline: 21 Oct 2019
The artwork should have physical presence and be scaled appropriately for this site. Due to the size of the roundabout, multiple elements working together to create a singular composition would be ideal. It must be designed to be appreciated from all sides. The artwork could be colorful and kinetic. The artwork should not be too shiny or reflective, or in any way create a distraction for drivers.
The elements can be large and massive enough to block direct views across the roundabout. This enables drivers to focus on what is ahead of them, not across or through the roundabout. Thematically, the artwork could embrace a transportation related theme, such as people using various transportation modes literally or abstractly. Transportation modes might represent the diversity of abilities. It could include elements such as walkers, wheelchairs, strollers, canes, bicycles, cars, trains, feet, scooters, motorcycles, skis, sleds, canoes, kayaks, rafts, and airplanes as well as innovative and futuristic options.
The artwork must be constructed from materials that are sufficiently durable to withstand the Colorado climate and altitude. These conditions include extreme temperature changes (over 40 degrees) in just a few hours and subzero temperatures as well as temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, high winds, intense sun, low humidity, and precipitation in the form of rain, hail, sleet, and snow.
Budget: $215,158 (There is a separate budget that the city will use for site preparation and minimal landscaping appropriate to the nature of the sculpture.)
About the City of Aurora
The Iliff Station Roundabout Sculpture will be located in Aurora, CO. Aurora is Colorado’s third largest city, and the safest large city in Colorado, spanning three counties in the eastern Denver-Aurora Metropolitan Area. The city embraces a highly diverse population of over 350,000 residents who enjoy access to quality education, Colorado’s natural beauty and active lifestyle, and an array of cultural amenities within the context of a vibrant and growing community. Aurora is home to top national employers in aerospace and defense, bioscience, healthcare, and alternative energy.
Situated on prairie grasslands, rolling hills and the northern tip of the Black Forest, Aurora offers a unique quality of life that blends a traditional sense of community with a range of outdoor and leisure activities. Residents enjoy a wealth of opportunities and are proud to call Aurora home.
Aurora Regional Transportation District
Aurora welcomed the light rail in early 2017 with the opening of R-Line as a branch of the public transportation network provided by the Regional Transportation District (RTD.) The R-Line is known for the strong public art at each station which resulted from a robust partnership between the city of Aurora (COA) and RTD. The New York Times magazine listed Aurora as one of the top places to see public art in 2017. Two sculptures adorn the Iliff Station environment, one located at the station, and the other located outside the Iliff Station Parking Garage. In this area, the R-Line follows the path of 1-225, a major highway providing access to Denver International Airport
Opportunities abound for transit-oriented development (TOD) along the R- line, especially around each station. The area around the Iliff Station has seen rapid transformation with the addition of contemporary high-density apartment living and mixed-use development in an area better known for single family housing on good sized lots and age-restricted retirement communities. These three and four-story apartment complexes in a pedestrian friendly environment are designed to meet the needs of the young professionals attracted to the employment opportunities and active life-style of this growing community.
In addition to the city’s 1% for Art Ordinance, Aurora has an ordinance requiring art within transit-oriented-development districts. New apartments just north of the station are already home to a highly visible ceramic mural entitled “Double Dip.” The Iliff Station Roundabout Sculpture will be located just south of the parking garage. The addition of sculpture on this roundabout will help to establish this area as a new public art hub within a community where the arts are thriving.
About the Art In Public Places Program
Aurora’s Art in Public Places Program enhances the quality of life in Aurora as high-quality neighborhoods and public spaces are developed and maintained. Locally and nationally renowned artists have created 240 individual pieces to enhance the city’s public spaces with works of art ranging from outdoor sculptures and murals to functional works integrated into the architecture. The program is funded from a city ordinance requiring the dedication of 1 percent of the funds used to build city of Aurora construction and remodeling projects with budgets of $100,000 or more. Grants and fundraising efforts also fund city public art projects.
The Art in Public Places Program is governed by the nine-member Aurora City Council-appointed Art in Public Places Commission. The commission is responsible for making recommendations to the city council regarding the public art program, including project budget allocation, strategic planning, development of policies and procedures,and approval of artwork to be commissioned or purchased.

Artworks must have been created within the past three years and not previously shown in any other Ann Arbor Art Center exhibitions.

Odds And Ends Juror: John Gutoskey
John Gutoskey is an artist, designer, printmaker, and collector. Early in his career, John worked as a costume designer and as a specialist in costume crafts, where he worked on productions in New York City and across the US in theater, opera, dance, film, and television. He taught classes in millinery, mask making, and fabric dyeing at the University of Michigan in the Department of Theater.
In the 1990‘s, John returned to his studio with a newfound interest in making art on his own terms. It resulted in an outpouring of new work. Exploring the media of assemblage (through found objects), collage, printmaking, and installation, he was inspired by the works of Joseph Cornell, Betye Saar, Lucas Samaras, outsider art, Art Brut, and religious art to evolve his own unmistakable style: a perfect mirror for his gregarious, highly animated personality. The obsessive collector in Gutoskey met the trained visual artist half-way.
John earned his BFA in theater design with a minor in sculpture from Webster University in St. Louis. He earned his MFA from the University of Michigan’s School of Art & Design where he studied printmaking & installation art, and also completed a certificate in LGBTQ Studies. John is the owner of JG Studio and the A2 Print Studio in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
