The San Antonio Tricentennial, through the City of San Antonio’s Department of Arts & Culture, seeks proposals from community artists and art agencies for pop-up art projects to occur during 2018, the year of the city’s 300th anniversary. The intent of the 300 TriArt Program is to inspire a diverse range of art throughout San Antonio and Bexar County that reflects local culture and history. 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.

“ground·swell” Mural Dedication @ Cedars Backyard

cedarsmural
CREATIVE ARTS CENTER ANNOUNCES MURAL WINNER FOR THE CEDARS BACKYARD

Dedication will be April 6 for Mural on Dallas‘ First Container Bar 


DALLAS – March 21, 2017 – Creative Arts Center of Dallas (CAC) announced artist Dallas artist Rebekah Shamsa the winner of “ground·swell”, the mural opportunity for The Cedars Social and its new container bar, The Cedars Backyard.  Rebekah is a graphic designer who specializes in motion and animation. A graduate of CalArts, she has maintained a passion for working in a variety of mediums outside of computers, including weaving, photography, painting, metal and clay.  This is the artist’s first mural project and there will be mural dedication on Thursday, April 6, 2017 from 5:30 to 7:30pm in celebration of Dallas Arts Month.
Mural Concept for Dallas first container for The Cedars Backyard
Themed “ground·swell”, the site-specific mural will be 10′ x 40′ on the backside of the container (facing the Dallas Police Department Headquarters).  CAC members were invited to submit up to three total color renderings encompassing the artist’s interpretation of the theme. The chosen artist was awarded a $1,000 gift to The Cedars Social as well as a $1,000 gift certificate to the Creative Arts Center.  There was also a $500 stipend for materials. Jurors for the project were Todd Hedrick, CAC board member; artist Cynthia Mulcahy; and Jeffrey Yarbrough, co-owner of The Cedars Social.
According to Shamsa, the interpretative, abstract pattern features a series of eyes to remind us we are all accountable and all one. “Using multiple strokes to complete the shapes is suggestive of a current, similar to that which flows unseen in our environments and bodies,” said Shamsa.  “The downpour of rain from the heavens, the uproar of fire from the earth’s core, and the rush of air between are symbols for our societies shared opinions and conflicting views. Yet, they intertwine seamlessly.”
According to Diana Pollak, CAC’s Executive Director, the mural competition is an exciting opportunity for an artist to have their work seen in such a prominent location at the heart of the city. “This public art partnership with a private business will impact the community through its theme, ground·swell,” said Pollak.  “We were very pleased with all the submissions.”

Sculpture by Nathan Mabry launches Public Art Program at Victory Park

NathanMabrysculpture

VICTORY PARK LAUNCHES PUBLIC ART PROGRAM

Sculpture by Nathan Mabry is the first of several public art pieces to be unveiled over the coming months

DALLAS (March 27, 2017) – Victory Park is putting the “V” in Victory with the unveiling of the first work in its new public art program: an eight-foot hand in the “V-sign” gesture. The steel sculpture, titled Heavy Handed (Symbol), is the latest work in California-based artist Nathan Mabry’s Heavy Handed series.

The work was commissioned as part of the district transformation efforts focused on evolving Victory Park into a more authentic, walkable and soulful urban neighborhood. Owners Estein USA and retail partner Trademark Property Co. selected the work for its historic symbolism as a gesture of solidarity, victory, and peace used by figures like Winston Churchill, and more recently, even Siri.

“The V-sign is an unmistakable gesture with a common understanding that spans generations and an important, sustainable message that we are proud to spread. Its meaning has evolved throughout history, just as Victory Park is doing, making it the perfect piece to launch our public art program,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “Embracing public art and the impact it can have on a space is a major initiative in our efforts to create a more vibrant, soulful Victory Park. By bringing creative, relevant public art to the district, we hope to enhance the emotional connection with the community and make Victory Park one of Dallas’ most interesting destinations.”

The sculpture, now perched at the intersection of Victory Park Lane and Olive Street, was completed in four months and is the 10th Heavy Handed work. Mabry’s Heavy Handed series launched in 2012 and includes similar corten steel hand sculptures, each of which is a different, often universally recognized, gesture, ranging from playful, like “fingers crossed,” to contemplative, like hands in a prayer-like position.

“The Heavy Handed works pay homage to minimalist and industrial sculptors like Tony Smith or Richard Serra,” said Mabry. “However, upon further inspection, these sculptures reveal themselves as symbolic hand gestures. This particular work references the very site it sits on, Victory Park.”

Victory Park’s Heavy Handed sculpture is Mabry’s first public installation in Dallas. He was also the subject of a solo exhibition at the Nasher Sculpture Center in 2013.

Heavy Handed is the first piece in a series of public art installations planned for Victory Park.  A large sculpture by Las Vegas artist Tim Bavington is set to be installed in spring 2017 near the W Dallas – Victory Hotel, followed by additional works by local and national artists to be announced in the coming months.

Visitors to Victory Park will already see some of the results of district transformation efforts, which include 85,000 square feet of new retail space, reworked streetscapes, sidewalks and storefronts, district identity markers, wayfinding elements, public space amenities, two-way traffic on Houston Street and Victory Avenue, and a dedicated bike lane extending the Katy Trail. Additional parking and valet options, as well as lighting and technology upgrades will also roll out in 2017.

As part of the redevelopment, Victory is also undergoing a full remerchandising to include Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas – Victory Park, a collection of best-in-class local food and beverage operators, and select local and national retailers.

Earlier this month, Victory Park announced that three of Dallas’ top food and beverage operators all will open concepts at the mixed-used district later this year: This & That Concepts, the team behind High Fives, So & So’s and The Standard Pour, will open a restaurant and bar; Elias Pope’s company, 8020 Hospitality, which is responsible for HG Sply. Co., is teaming up with Brooke Humphries, the mind behind Barcadia, Beauty Bar, Mudsmith, It’ll Do Club, and Pints & Quarts, to open a 24,000-square-foot restaurant and entertainment concept in Victory Plaza; and Brooke Humphries will also open a bar and tavern in an out-of-the-box location inside the parking garage on Victory Avenue.

Other 2017 openings include Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas – Victory Park and three unique concepts by Dallas entrepreneur Tristan Simon’s new venture, Rebees, including a modern Texas saloon, a retail emporium showcasing local artists and makers, and a creative workspace with a seasonally-minded, day-focused café. In addition, The 23, a new 285-unit mixed-use apartment community by LMC, will begin preleasing late this spring with move-ins beginning in August.

Splendora Gardens is proud to present:
“THE FLOWER SHOW @ Splendora Gardens”
(an open call, every artist gets in art show about Flowers)
located in the beautiful and historic studio of James Surls and Charmaine Locke:
26041 Midline Road, Cleveland, TX 77328
March 25th, 2017 – April 23rd, 2017
Through their quiet beauty and grave symbolism, flowers continually capture the imagination and inspire the passions of artists. Many delight in the delicacy of petals illuminated by a late spring sun, animated by a gentle wind. The complex play of light, color, value, and texture compel the brush and the pen, the lyric and the tone. Others render flowers and gardens, and the myriad elements that complete them, as metaphors for the most profound aspects of human existence. They emerge out of the verdant mire to denote rebirth, fertility, peace, prosperity, purity, and as Juan Ferret notes in “The Power of Flowers,” spiritual liberation from earthly impulses.
Flowers give voice to our feelings. They adorn our most sacred ceremonies and grace our bodies in life’s important moments. They serve as gifts to our closest loved ones and those we wish to draw closer, and memorials to those we will miss. They embellish the commonplace, bringing joy to families on city windowsills and in country planters. And while coloring our days with vibrant and subtle hues, flowers also nourish new life; the flower’s highest value lies in its interactions in the complex of nature. It is a node, a point of collection, of both beauty and purpose. The dynamic essence of an organism, the flower reaches towards the sun as a lofty realization of its inverse, the root. And as one instant within a larger environment, whether garden or wilderness, it provides sustenance to other organisms. The garden in turn provides sanctuary from the commotion of life. Restful meditation or deep contemplation await those willing to release themselves into the order and elation of the garden, however modest. Although an invention, a vibrant balance of science and aesthetics, the garden symbolizes paradise, creation, and the perfection of nature.
Splendora Gardens is pleased to invite artists of all kinds to submit works to be exhibited, presented, or performed at “The Flower Show.” Whichever discipline you work within, no matter your level of “achievement,” or age, we are calling for works that express your unique interpretation of the theme of “flowers” and/or “gardens.” There will be no juror; every piece submitted will be shown. You are welcome to send visual art, read original poetry or prose, perform a song, or anything else for that matter. You can exhibit or perform works you’ve already created or make something new.
Scheduled visual artists (so far): James Surls, Charmaine Locke, Daniel Johnston, The Wheeler Bro’s, Ruby Surls, Alton Dulaney, and you…

• All artists can submit one piece each ready to hang or display. (Not to exceed 36” in any direction). Unframed works are ok and will be tacked to the wall.
• Artists can hand deliver works to Splendora Gardens during their normal business hours (10am-2pm Thursday-Sunday)…

For many, the narrative of the American South, will be informed and confined by its history, but how is its future to be portrayed? This exhibition seeks,  in the broadest sense possible, to showcase contemporary artists’ depictions of the schism and reconciliation of what might be called the New Southern Futurism.

The Brickyard’s Water Tower Brings Artful Touch to DFW

water-tower

Dallas-based Billingsley Company is bringing an iconic structure by way of urban art to its new multifamily community, The Brickyard, with the unveiling of its new stain glass water tower. The water tower was designed by Joseph Shortell of Shortell Design, a Dallas-based designer who works in stone, glass, iron and other primary materials, and whose creations have been featured in restaurants, lounges and other locations from coast to coast. Lauren Stout, an independent artist working with Shortell, laid out the color schemes with direction and approval directly from property developer, Lucy Billingsley.

The water tower accompanies other urban-inspired design elements on the property, such as arched windows, brick detailing and old-style painted signs, reminiscent of Brooklyn style-walk ups.

Among the features of the Brickyard Water Tower:

  • Internally lit with 24 LED flood lights
  • Agricultural silo-style metal roof
  • 24 3’x6’ curved panels, each with individual colored acrylic panes in varying shades of yellow, orange, red, blue and green
  • Panel and pane frames made of powder-coated metal to withstand the harsh Texas elements

“We could not be more thrilled with how the Water Tower has turned out,” said Sumner Billingsley, managing partner on The Brickyard project. “I think it fully encompasses the thoughtfulness and unique attention to detail that went into this development – inspired by elements of the past, but infused with the creativity and energy of our community today.”

The water tower sits on the edge of the property – a perfect viewing location for both residents and passersby. The official unveiling and lighting of the water tower was October 5th. Farmers Branch dignitaries and guests attended a lighting party to see the new addition to the property and welcome a local piece of art to the community.

The Brickyard is the first phase of apartments and townhomes in Mercer Crossing, the newest multi-use Billingsley development, located at the crossroads of Interstate 35E, Interstate 635 and President George Bush Turnpike. The Brickyard is a blend of one- and two-bedroom apartments and townhomes that embody romantic industrial architecture with abundant use of brick, metal-framed windows and old-style painted signs on building walls. Residents have been moving into the community since May 2016.

The Galvez Streetscape, New Orleans, LA

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.

CALL for ARTISTS: 2017 Cape Girardeau Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit

2017call-cgosesq

The City of Cape Girardeau Public Art Committee is now accepting submissions from qualified sculptors to participate in the 2017 – 2018 Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition. Now in it’s fourth year, the location of the exhibition will be along the Broadway Corridor, a nine-block span in downtown Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Downtown is where we find our history, sense of individuality, and the mighty Mississippi – where the river turns a thousand tales! It is also home to locally owned businesses that bring flavor and matchless experiences. Places such as the city hall and federal courthouse, as well as Southeast Missouri State University and Media Row, are also found in Cape Girardeau’s Downtown. Together, these entities keep us connected and informed.

The Public Art Exhibition has been identified as yet another dynamic revitalization strategy to elevate the arts community within the region, as confirmed by the success of the past three years of exhibits. Missouri Main Street Connection has named the exhibit a finalist and semi-finalist for two State Awards in 2015 and 2016, and a piece was sold for permanent placement on Broadway!

Several locations along the Broadway Corridor in Downtown Cape Girardeau have been selected for public sculpture and yield high visibility with both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. All work entered must be freestanding and “suitable” for long-term outdoor public display within the space provided. The durability of the work and safety of the public will be a consideration for selection.

For more information, and to download the full prospectus, visit: www.capearts.org/2017CapeSculpture.aspx
