Open Call: Outdoor Installation Art Proposals in High School Park, Elkins Park

This Deadline Expired: Friday, April 15, 2022

Friends of High School Park is looking for submissions for their 2022 Summer Outdoor Art Series. Proposals for the installation of outdoor works of art should consider how the work will survive the elements, remain substantially maintenance free during the exhibition period, and engage with the community through an activity and/or information shared through their website and social media accounts. Because the park is an open space, they unfortunately cannot guarantee security for the works.

Proposals can be made by individual artists, partnerships, or groups. The goal is to encourage
works that will attract visitors to connect with the site. A stipend of $250 will be awarded to chosen proposals to offset material and labor costs. Exhibition periods will range from 2- 4 weeks in length during the months of June, July and August 2022.

TO APPLY: Send the following materials to Julia Way at juliaway215@gmail.com

  1. Resume(s)
  2. Artist(s) Bio
  3. 2-5 images of related work (Name files with last name and number. ie. Smith_1)
  4. Proposal (500 words or less, may include drawings)
