Calling All Visual Artists For New Public Artist Directory
The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County’s Art In Public Spaces Program originated in 2018 with the introduction of The Underwater Museum of Art (UMA). Since then, the program has expanded to include the Billboard Art Project, a series of murals in Grand Boulevard Town Center, and most recently, The WatersoundⓇ Monarch Art Trail (MAT).
The CAA’s Art in Public Spaces program is designed to foster collaboration, celebrate community and culture, encourage exploration, strengthen the economy, and activate the unique environment of Walton County.
CALL TO ARTISTS
The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County seeks emerging and established visual artists for its new Public Artist Directory.
Selected applicants are eligible for inclusion on the CAA's Art in Public Spaces web page. This database will be shared for participation in various Walton County projects, and artists may be contracted to design, fabricate, and install public art. Artwork sites may include properties such as local businesses, libraries, recreation centers, parks, sidewalks, and more.
Artists will be selected for the database based on history of past work, community engagement, and ability to collaborate with the CAA employees and project liaisons. A selection panel will convene to screen all eligible applications.
HOW TO APPLY
Submit your application ONLINE. You will need to set up an account with Submittable if you do not already have one. You only have to set up your account one time, but you will need to submit to artist calls individually.
