Are you a skilled artist looking to showcase what you can do in the witch city? Salem is looking for artists to apply for three temporary installations and the deadline to submit yourself for consideration is March 30th.
“The City of Salem seeks proposals from artists and designers interested in creating site-responsive public art installations in the heart of downtown Salem during the summer/fall of 2017. Artists and designers working in any media, including light, sound, or other multimedia, are encouraged to submit proposals. The City is particularly interested in installations that have an impact when viewed across the site and that are effective at night as well as during the day. Salem is a growing, culturally diverse city with a rich literary, architectural, maritime, and immigrant history, including its role in the 17th century Salem Witch Trials. In the 19th century, it was one of the most important seaports in the country. Today it is lively destination that draws people from around the world. Three sites for the public art project have been chosen to celebrate the urban environment and create a pathway through locations in the downtown. Artists may apply for one, two or three sites.”
