HeART and Sole of Downtown Batesville OUR TOWN PUBLIC ART PROJECT
Application Deadline July 1, 2020
Our Town Batesville Public Art seeks qualified artists to design and create exterior art projects for a series of locations in downtown Batesville. The artwork will enhance the overall character and atmosphere of the downtown core and support a welcoming environment. The design of each project should take into consideration the location of the wall, the architecture of the structure, the viewing angles of the surface and the impact on the surrounding area. Local, regional and national artists and designers are invited to submit design ideas, total size not to exceed a dimension that equals the same total surface area, for spaces identified below.
Artists who have demonstrated experience will complete the project independently and/or with a crew, if approved by project organizers . The Public Art selection team for HeART and Sole will meet with the mural team for a design consultation and provide initial oversight and timeline.
INSTALLATION & COMPLETION DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 1, 2021
Eligibility: Students in grades 6-12 attending OA, BHS, BMS, SLS.
Young Artist Showcase (YAS) is a program sponsored by the Batesville Area Arts Council that recognizes students who excel in six categories of “The Arts”: music, drama, art, writing, film, and dance. Each YAS winner is honored with a blue ribbon or trophy at his or her schools’ end-of-year program along with the sports and academic awards that are traditionally given by the school. Young Artist Showcase is divided into two divisions: Junior (grades 6-8) and Senior (grades 9-12). The Showcase is also open to students who live outside the area but whose parents are members of BAAC. A student may enter and win an award in each of the five YAS areas (art, music, dance, drama, film, and writing). However, a student may earn only one award in each area per year. For example, if a student has scores from two different contests in music, or scores from two different drama productions, only the higher score will be used to determine the award.
