Avon Seeking Artists for New Art Around Avon Program
The Town of Avon released a Call For Sculpture Artists / Request for Proposals (“RFP”) for multiple artists to apply for the Art Around Avon Program to promote the display of visual sculpture art throughout the Town of Avon community for the benefit of residents and visitors. Interested applicants may apply at CaFETM through March 15, 2021.
The Art Around Avon is a new program with the goal of selecting up to nine (9) visual sculpture art pieces for installation in pre-determined outdoor spaces in early June 2021. The selected artist’s work will be on exhibition in an outdoor location for up to twelve (12) months during which time the artist may make the work available for sale.
The enhancement of public places by integrating the creative work of artists improves the pedestrian experience and promotes vibrancy, creativity and livelihood in the community. The presence of and access to public art enlivens public areas and their grounds and makes them more welcoming. It creates a deeper interaction with the places where we live, work, and visit. Public art illuminates the diversity and history of a community, and points to its aspirations for the future.
