CdA Arts Commission Seeks Artists for "ArtCurrents"

The City of Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission is seeking artists to participate in its “ArtCurrents” program. Artists submit applications for placement of their sculptures around CdA’s downtown for a period of one (1) year. The displayed works will also be offered for sale, with the City of Coeur d’Alene receiving a 25% commission from the sale.

Up to fourteen (14) art pieces will be selected and the artist or artist team will be paid a stipend of $500.00 after receipt of the artwork. The selected artwork will be displayed along Sherman Avenue, Lakeside Avenue, and City Park.

Public art can be a change agent for the community. It creates and enhances neighborhood and community identity. It enhances the visual landscape and character of the city. It turns ordinary spaces into community landmarks and promotes community dialogue and, most importantly, it’s accessible to everyone.

Information packets are available at City Hall, 710 E. Mullan Avenue, or online at www.cdaid.org. Artist proposals are due by 5:00 p.m., April 12, 2013. Installation of the artwork will begin the week of June 3rd.

Artists who are interested in participating are encouraged to contact Steve Anthony, Arts Commission Liaison, at 769-2249.
