Local arts group accepting proposals for its new Art4Trails project
The Rochester Arts and Culture Collaborative has placed a call out to local artists interested in installing a piece of original work along the city's bike trail system.
The group will accept submissions for its Art4Trails project through Nov. 30. Up to five proposals will be selected to "enliven bike trail sites from Slatterly Park to Silver Lake," according to a news release.
All proposals will be reviewed by a panel of artists, arts curators and neighborhood representatives. The five finalists will each receive $2,000 for time and materials needed to produce and install their artwork.
“RACC aims to unite local artists, art lovers and cultural organizations to ensure their efforts remain an important part of the city’s landscape," said Audrey Betcher, co-chair of the RACC steering committee. "Art4Trails seems an ideal way to do this.”
The art will be installed in June 2016 and be in place for 3 to 12 months. This is the first community initiative for the RACC, an arts advocacy group that officially launched earlier this year.
