Each year, ACP commissions a temporary public art project that is a highlight of the ACP Festival. ACP's Public Art program is significant in its ability to bring photographic or lens-based projects to audiences that might not ordinarily visit a traditional arts venue. These projects encourage viewers to consider photography in fresh new ways. Do you have a great idea for an exciting Public Art project? We'd love to see it!
Our Open Call for Proposals for the ACP 2013 Public Art Project is now accepting your creative ideas. We look forward to your proposals exploring the intersection of photography and public art in Atlanta for this year's Festival!
Our 2013 Public Art Project has a $9,500 budget, and it's free to apply. It is a requirement that your project involve lens-based or photographic media as an integral part of the piece (this includes images and/or video captured by a lens, or media in which light sensitivity is a primary element of the material, or reimagining the uses of photography, or possibilities of imagery made with light).
We encourage you to think widely and to explore this concept without restraint!
Take a look at ACP Public Art Projects from past years including work from Larson/Shindelman, Monica Cook, Karen Brummund, Beth Lilly, McCallum/Tarry, Jason Fulford, Matt Haffner, Amy Landesberg & Peter Bahouth.
You can download the PDF and learn more and submit your proposal via callforentry.org. The application deadline is January 21st. We look forward to seeing your ideas for ACP Public Art!
