The Office of Arts, Culture, and the Creative Economy (OACCE) announces a $103,000 Percent for Art opportunity for Mann Rivera Renovation Project. This is a public art opportunity for the exterior perimeter wall of the Mann Rivera Center along Allegheny Avenue and 5th Street. The art could include a mosaic installation, mural, or other sculptural elements. Artists who live or work in the local community around Mann Rivera will be prioritized for this opportunity, but any artist may apply.

Virtual Artist Meeting/Workshop

Register for the meeting here

OACCE strongly encourages local artists, new and emerging artists, and artists of color to apply for this opportunity. OACCE will hold a virtual artist meeting/workshop for those artists interested in learning more about the Percent for Art program and will walk through the process and application for the Mann Rivera Percent for Art opportunity. The meeting will include a Spanish interpreter and former Percent for Art artists who can answer questions about their experience. OACCE will also work with Artists to develop digital images of the artists’ works of art, if needed, to include in the application.

Relationships
(I always say) are never easy:
especially those between
color, shape, texture, space . . .
and tension.
The relationship of the part to the part,
the part to the whole and the relationship
of the piece to the viewer . . . no matter
what materials I use is all important.
I use titles to emotionalize these abstract
pieces to help communicate a connection
between the individual and
the universal whole.

In the metal pieces I use recycled aluminum
printing press plates which I sand,
cut and glue onto wood panels, they are
about energy and light, patterns and
motion, all influenced by the microcosm
of life forms, biology, and a
hint of satire.
