Jury Panel to Review the Artwork: April 21 – May 8, 2020
Artwork on display: mid-June 2020 until mid-June 2021
Open to all artists of three-dimensional media.
All durable outdoor media are encouraged.
All artists must submit a complete application by the specified deadline.
Artists may submit up to 2 sculptures for consideration; however, each sculpture must be submitted separately. Please include three images per submission that clearly show a front and back view, including one that shows the scale of the work.
Applications for temporary artwork specifically designed to morph or transition over the year through exposure to the elements will be accepted. Safety considerations will be taken into consideration and should be outlined in the application. (Possible media might include fiber, wood, paper, etc.)
Submissions must be original creations by the artists, and the artist must own the rights to the artwork.
The sculpture must be available for the duration of the one-year contract.
Submissions must be professionally constructed of durable materials which will withstand the elements. An exception to this rule would be those artworks submitted that may transition over time.
Please give all dimensions (h x w x d), weight and a stated insurance value for the artwork.
There are presently no restrictions on size; however, artists should be aware that sculptures will be installed onto a 3 ½’ x 3 ½’ plinth within a well-traveled shopping/gallery streetscape.
The installation method for each sculpture should be welded tabs or similar easy-install method.
Selected artists are responsible for transportation (and associated transportation costs) of the artwork to and from the installation site.
The City of Loveland will install a recognition plaque indicating the title, medium, artist and contact phone number for purchasing artwork.
All sculptures will be listed on the Art in Public Places webpages and within all TAAP promotional material.
Artwork may be available for sale. The Loveland Art in Public Places Program will retain a commission of 20% of the purchase value.
Artists will enter into a City of Loveland contract, which outlines the specific project terms. General liability insurance may be necessary for all selected artists. The City of Loveland will incur no liability in the delivery of sculpture to or from the installation location.
The City of Loveland is responsible for making minor emergency repairs when necessary and maintaining insurance coverage on the works due to vandalism. The City will not be liable for degradation caused by normal wear and tear, and weathering. In the event the installation is bronze work, the Artist should cold wax the artwork prior to, or immediately following, installation. While the Artwork should be relatively maintenance-free, the City or its assigns assumes responsibility for minor maintenance.
