Competition: Public Art for Poet's Park

Genre(s): Visual arts: various.

Welcome to the back pages of the Gilbert Wesley Purdy Online Bibliography. Rather than merely use a few pages for the Bibliography I have decided to begin posting calls for submissions again. I will be posting information about literary and arts competitions, as well. So you may want to subscribe to the Bibliography RSS (or Atom) in order to get the latest information. If you wish to have your own call for submissions or competition posted, contact me at gwpurdy@yahoo.com. A confirming link may be required in order to post your notice. I will include all notices the I have time to post.

Oh, and I hope you will stop in at the Hyperlinked Internet Bibliography page, as well. Perhaps you will find something of interest there.

Comments: "The City of Santa Cruz Public Art Committee seeks to commission artwork for Poet’s Park, a new neighborhood park being constructed in the Beach Flats neighborhood. The 7200 sq. ft. park, currently under construction, is named in honor of Isabel H. Raymond, a pioneering Santa Cruz feminist, journalist, historian and author, and will feature a public plaza, 16 community garden plots and a children’s play area,...

The public art project will provide the opportunity for the artist or team of artists to fully engage with the Beach Flats community in developing the concept and design of the artwork. The artwork is intended to visually integrate elements of the park and enhance the user’s appreciation of the surroundings."
