Scottsdale Public Art is offering a free workshop for local artists on Saturday, Aug. 20 at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art to help artists take their practice from the studio into the public realm.
Creating artwork for public spaces has unique challenges. During the workshop, artists will learn best practices to help them be successful through the process, according to a press release.
Scottsdale Public Art will guide participants through the procedures of submitting qualifications and creating an engaging proposal for temporary public art opportunities, walk through a sample public art contract, and offer guidelines for how to plan and manage a project budget.
Attendees will also learn about Scottsdale Public Art’s current temporary public art open call for IN FLUX Cycle 7, ending on Sept. 30, 2016.
The workshop will include panels with local public art administrators as well as local artists who have received commissions for IN FLUX and other temporary public art projects. These guest speakers will discuss their personal experiences while offering insights into the application process and what makes a successful public art project.
To RSVP, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the IN FLUX initiative, visit influxaz.com.
The Scottsdale Independent is available for free every Wednesday.
