***PUBLIC ART OPPORTUNITIES, Portland, Oregon***
Skateable Art for Pier Park Skatepark.
The Regional Arts & Culture Council invites artists/teams living in Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington Counties in Oregon, or in Clark County, Washington, to submit qualifications for a public art project at the soon to be built Skatepark at Pier Park in North Portland. The Art Selection Panel is interested in commissioning an artist or an artist team to create artwork that is skateable and integrates into the overall design for the Skatepark. Graphic and sculptural opportunities include incorporating color into the concrete, designing already planned tilework and handrails, or working with the contractor to create a skateable component with cast concrete or steel. The art budget is $13,000. Download guidelines at http://www.racc.org. Deadline: 5/12/06./06.
Because you can't have a publicly financed skate park without including publicly financed artwork.
No money for concrete that cars use... money for concrete that skateboards use. That's the best way to spend our tax dollars?
