Call for Entry! The TRANSFORMATIONS 2016 Project

Post Date:05/10/2016 11:00 AM



Transformations 2016 CFETRANSFORMATIONS 2016
The City of Loveland Visual Arts Commission desires Northern Colorado artists to create unique, original murals upon 5 designated electrical cabinets in Loveland as part of the Transformations Project. The intent of the program is to transform these everyday objects into one-of-a-kind works of art which stimulate our senses and create a sense of place within the community! THE DEAD-LINE FOR SUBMISSION IS JUNE 17, 2016 at 5 pm.

Application Requirements:

  • The program is open to all Northern Colorado artists (Longmont north).
  • Artists are encouraged to submit lively, colorful designs, with all areas of the box “active.”
  • There is no designated theme for submissions this year so let your imagination go and Be Creative!
  • Artists chosen for this project must complete the painting process between July 15th and August 31st, 2016. Artists will work with staff to determine their individual painting schedule.
  • Artists are required to use artist/professional grade acrylic paint.
  • All transformer cabinets are functioning units and need to be opened and operated periodically by utility personnel. Selected proposals must incorporate the existing required labeling for each electrical/utility unit — so it may be necessary for an artist to tweak an accepted design.
Design Criteria:
A subcommittee of the Visual Arts Commission will work with a jury panel comprised of Loveland citizens and City staff to determine the finalists based upon the submission mate-rials:
     1. Review of model as submitted and suitability for outdoor public display.
     2. Suitability of the artist to the project as demonstrated in resume, submission form, and quality of artist's previous work as demonstrated in images.

Each submission must include the following:
Completed Model of Your Design: Artists are required to submit a 3-D model of their design concept. Artists should provide a model measuring approximately 11” length x 11” width x 9” height. Artists may choose to create the box out of any material desired or use a pre-fabricated box. Design concepts may be executed in any desired medium; however, if chosen, the design must reflect the artist’s inten-tion for the finished work. If chosen for the project, artists are expected to execute their design ac-cording to this model. It is essential that artists have utilized the box in its entirety, leaving no unused space in the composition (except on required label area).

Additionally, please be sure to include the following materials when submitting your application:
  • A completed model of the design.
  • A current resume or curriculum vitae.
  • Five digital images representing past work (no more than 2 mg each photo)
  • A self-addressed, stamped envelope with sufficient postage if you wish your CD to be returned.
Applications must be submitted to the address below by Friday, June 17th at 5:00 p.m. No late or in-complete submissions will be accepted.
Applications should be delivered to:
2016 Transformations Project
c/o Art in Public Places Program
503 N. Lincoln Avenue
Loveland, CO 80537 

All models not chosen for the project should be picked up from the Loveland Museum/Gallery between June 28, 2016 and July 12, 2016. All models not picked up by the deadline will be discarded.
