Blacksmiths: Those that shape steel through fire and force. The blacksmith has often taken a backseat in the realm of modern art and design, deferring instead to function and tradition.  The last 2 decades have seen a new generation of blacksmith’s evolve.  They express openness, with a desire to engage with the art and design world. By organizing a show of contemporary forged iron work, we aim connect blacksmithing with a wider conversation – One of contemporary art, craft and metal work. This show will create a platform for relevant work within a fresh context.

Through these temporary and permanent projects, locals and visitors alike will experience a mixture of art in a variety of expressions that reflects the vibrant pulse of the community. “The 300 TriArt Program will produce a diversity of art in our community that is accessible and open to the public,” said Faith Radle of Three Chord Media and member of the Tricentennial Commission. “We encourage both seasoned and emerging artists to embrace the tricentennial anniversary and create expressive works that showcase the culture, history, and unique beauty of San Antonio and Bexar County.” All art types (visual, literary, performance, filmmaking, etc.) and media will be considered for the program, and each project should be site-specific for a location open to the community. Arts partners are encouraged to implement their projects in non-traditional art venues to highlight unique and creative spaces in San Antonio. The projects that are ultimately selected will be reflective of the city and county’s rich heritage, taking into account our 300 years of history, and encouraging active community participation. The 300 TriArt Program will incite creative passion in the community and create a cultural legacy that commemorates the tricentennial anniversary. Individual awards granted through the 300 TriArt Program range from $1,000 to $20,000, with a total of $300,000 available to support local artistic talent.

New Orleans Fire Department Murals, LA

Budget: $15,000
Deadline: 11/4/16

The Arts Council New Orleans’ Place + Civic Design Department is requesting mural proposals to replace public art installations at two New Orleans Fire Department locations. The department, through the City of New Orleans’ Percent for Art Program, and in partnership with the New Orleans Fire Department, will decommission existing public art banner installations and replace them with contemporary murals at the 801 Girod Street Flying Squad and Basin Street stations. The call is open to experienced artists, artist teams, or community groups working with muralists. Proposals may be submitted for both sites; however, only one artist or artist group will be selected for each site. While the installation should connect the fire department to the larger New Orleans community, themes should reflect broader sentiments that transcend specific references to fire, safety, and the departments’ history. Example sentiments include, but are not limited to: • A deep connection to, and congruence with, the surrounding neighborhood; • Specific historical references from the surrounding community; • Celebration of contemporary art’s transformative energy; • Collective empowerment and representation through creative expression in urban spaces; • Excitement and interest for the community’s current growth and energy; • Celebration of the neighborhood’s identity, and rich heritage.
