Open Call for Artists: Glow in the Park Event

Open Call for Artists: Glow in the Park Event

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Fairmount Park Conservancy seeks to commission one artist or artist team to create a temporary outdoor art installation for the 6th annual GLOW in the Park at the Reflecting Pool at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center.

We are looking for a piece with a sense of fun, spectacle, and intentionality, speaking to its setting as well as creating a unique experience for those attending.

This commission is part of a larger effort to forge new connections between artists and cultural partners with communities and the public realm. We are working to engage the power of the arts to enhance our treasured city parks and to provide a new lens through which to see, understand and experience them.
