Calling all large--scale artists!

!

For the upcoming Live Culture Coast event, we are commissioning two temporary, large-scale, outdoor art installations that comment, communicate, and collaborate with the land on which they are assembled.

 

OVERVIEW

Live Culture Coast is a 10 day choose-your-own-adventure of food, art, and place across 135 miles — a social probiotic that invites both residents and visitors to more deeply experience Oregon’s south coast from Reedsport to Brookings.

By plane, train, bus, car, buggy, bike, boat, or your own 2 feet, join us from anywhere between 2 hours and ten days, one stop or all 135 miles for experiences that ignite your curiosity and enliven your 5 senses. Place-based art, culinary workshops, outdoor adventures, and more await your visit to where land meets the sea, food transforms to ferments, and art flourishes with ecology.

Live Culture Coast will commission 2 original Art Works to be installed along the route. The work will be on public view at the Port of Gold Beach and Langlois Cheese Factory from October 18-27, 2019. We are seeking artists (individuals or teams) who are interested in creating site-responsive work and engaging with the landscape, landowners, and surrounding communities. This is an opportunity to contribute to a unique and exciting anchor event that incubates “creative placemaking” projects which elevate the south coast as a place to try entrepreneurial ideas and market the area globally to bring more visitors that return to share the experience with friends.

Artists are responsible for both installation and de-installation of their work and will have 5 days to install and 2 days to de-install. Artists are also responsible for monitoring the art work at least once a day and be available for media requests during the 10 days of the event. Artists retain ownership of the work after the DTour and will grant to LCC, OCVA, and OTC a non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use and prepare derivative works based upon the art installation.

Locations
1. Port of Gold Beach
• 3 areas of the port to choose from. Note the red numbers on this photo of the port.
• Here are photos of the parking lot area and of the 2 beach areas

2. Langlois Cheese Factory
• grassy areas between the stage and the factory

• Here are photos of the property

NOTE: Please do not reach out to the land managers. If you have questions, please attend a scheduled Site Visit or contact Creative Director Amber Peoples at liveculturecoast@gmail.com.

Helpful Tips
• Oregon’s South Coast weather in October can be unpredictable, so plan for rain, cold, and high winds (especially at the port!)
• The landscape can dwarf even the most ambitious projects
• Audience interaction with installations ranges from drive-by to direct engagement. Keep both scenarios in mind as you develop your idea.
• For inspiration, look at photos of the landscapes as well as the 2018 Fermentation Fest: A Live Culture Convergence. http://bit.ly/LCCartinstallphotos

Proposal Selection Criteria:
• Reclaimed, reused, recycled, reimagined materials
• Artistic excellence and innovation
• Visual Impact
• Spirit of community collaboration with Oregon’s south coast and specific location
• Demonstrated ability to realize
• Feasibility in the context of the larger event
• Withstand various weather conditions (rain, wind, heat, cold, etc)
• Curatorial Vision
• In ecology there is a concept called "edge environments” – areas between one sort of landscape and another, where ecosystems overlap. These edges tend to have more diversity (and therefore more hardiness) than either of the adjoining environments alone. These mixed-use zones, both literal and conceptual, characterize the Live Culture Coast experience and allows us to see new possibilities for our land, our work, and our communities.

Proposal Submission Requirements
• One page pdf Letter of Interest including contact information and desired location (Port of Gold Beach #1-3 or Langlois Cheese Factory)
• One page pdf Preliminary Project Concept including a bid estimate (an itemized budget is not required yet). The maximum allotment per art installation is $5000 — including materials and labor.
• Concept drawings or visual references in JPEG format “high” or “fine” quality, file size not to exceed 2 MB per image.
• 4-6 images of applicant’s recent work demonstrating capacity to realize large-scale outdoor project. JPEG format “high” or “fine” quality, file size not to exceed 2 MB per image.
• Email submission to liveculturecoast@gmail.com with the subject “Art Work RFP Concept Submission” by July 15 at 5:00pm PST

Artists wanted for Veteran related murals for Curry Annex Building

What do you get when you take an old parking garage, add walls, and desks? You get the County Annex Building – the location of Commissioner meetings, tax payments, building permits, and other general county services. What do you get when you add art? A cultural attraction for visitors to explore and the artists to be proud of -- the Veterans Mural Project, Phase 1.

Curry County is seeking youth groups, art classes, artists and other interested parties to paint Veteran related murals on the inside walls of the County Annex. “We are a county that honors veterans, so we decided our theme should be Veterans“, noted Board of County Commissioners Chair, Christopher Paasch, who was recently appointed by the President last week to the National Veterans and Military Services Committee. “We want people engaged in county government, and this is a good way to introduce youth, or other interested parties, to what happens in our building. We also hope to add some more art to our cultural inventory”.

Interested parties are asked to propose a scope of work that will be reviewed by Commissioner Sue Gold, Veteran’s Service Officer Anthony Voudy, and Director of Operations Julie Schmelzer. The available wall space is approximately eight feet in height and varies in widths. There is no charge for the ‘canvas’, but artists must supply their own paints and tarps. All painting must be done during normal business hours, which are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. If interested, contact Schmelzer at the Board of Commissioners’ Office or by e-mail at schmelzerj@co.curry.or.us.

Why is the project called ‘Phase 1’? It is the county’s intent to inspire building owners and artists to partner together to create more visual art in Curry County.

Art exhibit opens OSU150 Sun Grant Festival

Curator Tina Green-Price and the Giustina Gallery staff have successfully matched art exhibits with each of Oregon State University's year-long grant festivals, from space to sea. But this month's Sun Grant Festival proved to be particularly challenging. The festival is focused on more than just the sun, it is about alternative energy sources and the planet, Green-Price says.

 

 

Solar power was an influence for one of the exhibit's more obscure pieces, an acrylic painting, "Dr. Frankenstein's Monster Goes Solar" by Michael Ousley of Langlois, Oregon. The bright red, yellow and orange painting features Frankenstein with an external LED attached to his forehead.
