    Each artist selected for a LandLab residency will:

    • develop an art-based outdoor intervention at the Schuylkill Center
    • collaborate with specialists (ecologists, land managers, educators, etc.) to problem-solve, experiment, and design a project that operates on the multiple platforms of art, ecological restoration and education
    • conduct engagement and educational components that could include artist lecture(s), participatory events or public workshops, and/or projects with the Schuylkill Center’s partnering schools during the course of the residency
    • document the development of the project and the final result

    In support of the LandLab application process, the Schuylkill Center and CFEVA will offer information sessions and site visits. While these sessions are optional, we recommend artists attend an information session before applying to LandLab.

    All professional artists with some experience in ecological art or environmental practices who are able to work on-site at the Schuylkill Center during the period of summer 2016-summer 2017 are invited to apply before March 15, 2017.

  • RFQ – The Oval 2016

    Deadline May 9: The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, in partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and the Fairmount Park Conservancy, is proud to announce an exciting opportunity at The Oval for Summer 2016. For the past three summers, The Oval, located at Eakins Oval along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, has been transformed into a fun and lively oasis with programming for people of all ages. Games and activities for kids, a beer garden under the trees, live music, an outdoor movie screen on the lawn, group yoga, a variety of food trucks to pick from each week and more are set up in an effort to reprogram the under-utilized site which functions as a parking lot during the rest of the year. The Oval becomes a flourishing park for five weeks and the mural sets the tone for the entire summer experience.

    This year, we would like The Oval project to consider Philadelphia’s role as the hearth of American democracy and the location of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, which will take place during the time The Oval is open for public use (the DNC is July 25-28, 2016). We are seeking artists or artist teams who have the capability of not only creating the large-scale, iconic design for which The Oval has become known, but also proposing a programming element that allows Oval visitors to engage in an activity related to civic discourse (the programming element should be reflected in the final design).

    BACKGROUND & SITE CONTEXT: Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, in partnership with the Fairmount Park Conservancy, revealed the City of Philadelphia’s new “Park on the Parkway” in July 2013. The eight acres of public space located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway known as Philadelphia’s own “Avenue des Champs-Élysées,” Eakins Oval (2601 Benjamin Franklin Parkway) became The Oval, a park with community programming, events and activities. Designed to promote the Parkway as a neighborhood park for all Philadelphians, The Oval offers a wide array of activities and amenities, and features park spaces that all ages can easily access and enjoy. theovalphl.org

    DESIGN & PRODUCTION: The design and production phases are set up separately allowing for an artist/designer/team to design the mural with the option to have a production team execute the painting of the mural. Ideally, the artist is able to oversee the production but it is not a requirement; however, as a result, production fees are set up separately from the design fee. The project manager will work with the artist to assemble a production team. The production phase is approximately one week in July and begins after the site is cleared from the July 4th celebration. Opening Day is set for Friday, July 15th – the artist is expected to be in attendance at the Opening Day press event regardless of production participation.

    ELIGIBILITY: This call is open to established and emerging artists, designers, or an artist/design team from the Philadelphia region. It is preferred that the artist has a connection to Philadelphia, lives within the region, or lives close enough to commute regularly if selected. The selected artist will ideally be present during the production phase and must be in attendance for the Opening Day event.

    PROJECT PHASES & SCHEDULE:
    Phase 1: Artist Selection from RFQ
    Deadline for RFQ submissions: Friday, April 8, 2016 (NOON)
    Artist Selection Notifications: By Friday, April 15, 2016

    Phase 2: Design Concepts
    Concept Phase Begins: Monday, April 18, 2016
    Deadline for Design Concepts: Monday, May 9, 2016
    (Presentations to the Selection Committee – Week of May 9th)

    Phase 3: Final Design
    Final Design Phase Begins: Monday, May 16, 2016
    (Finalist will need to attend 1-2 meetings during late May through June for design progress approval)

    Phase 4: Production
    Mural Production: July 8 – 14, 2016
    Opening Day: Friday, July 15th (Artist must be present for Opening Day press event)

    PROJECT DELIVERABLES FOR DESIGN CONCEPTS: The artist/designer chosen will be responsible for designing a mural and submitting it in a cleaned-up digital format. Artist is responsible for: sizing the mural to the site plans, providing proper dimensions of artwork, creating a production plan for the team, and providing all necessary dimensions for paint estimates, regardless of their level of involvement in actual mural production.
