The Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) invites artists to submit proposals for new, site-inspired public art work to be installed in Georgetown as part of the Georgetown GLOW Winter Public Art Exhibition, an outdoor display of public art and light installations on view from Friday, December 12, 2014- Sunday, December 14, 2014.
The Georgetown GLOW Winter Public Art Exhibition is open to artists working in all mediums, including performance, video, sound, and 2-D work. While there are no specific geographic limitations, preference will be given to local and regional artists. We are seeking proposals for new work that creatively incorporates light; explores concepts of space and place; inspires public interaction; and utilizes and responds to specific sites within Georgetown. The exhibition aims to highlight the historic Georgetown neighborhood through public art that mixes technology and innovation.
Installations will be located in highly visible and historic sites throughout the Georgetown neighborhood, and lit nightly from 6 pm to 10 pm on the evenings of December 12, 13, and 14.
The Georgetown BID will provide an artist fee of $2000 to each selected artist. This fee will include all costs associated with materials and physical execution of the installation. Georgetown BID will provide electricity needs and overnight security for each project if and when on public property.
Proposal Submission Process:
To be considered, each applicant must submit a signed application, which includes a CV, description of the proposed project, completion of supplemental questions, 4 high-resolution images of previous work, and a rendering of the proposed project. Applicants are permitted to submit no more than two project proposals for consideration.
All proposals must be submitted to Erin Higgins at [email protected] with the subject “Georgetown GLOW Exhibition Proposal” by 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday, October 30, 2014.
