Chapman Cultural Center seeking artists experienced in wooden sculptures

The Arts Partnership of Greater Spartanburg/Chapman Cultural Center is looking for a professional South Carolina artist with experience in woodworking and large 3-D wooden sculptures to participate on a design team for an arts project in Spartanburg S.C. The project would not begin until June 2015 and is contingent upon the Arts Partnership being awarded an Art Works: Design Grant for Livability from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The project is part of a larger neighborhood-wide redevelopment initiative to create a “Choice Neighborhood.” The arts project is the next step of a successful cultural planning process funded by an Our Town Grant from the NEA. The plan for the Northside Neighborhood of Spartanburg (pictured above) identified short-term and long-term goals for arts infusion in this underserved neighborhood with innovative approaches to how the arts may be experienced and appreciated. The design team will include neighborhood residents, college students, national arts planners and local arts agencies. The design team will design and build prototypes for permanent impromptu performing venues in the neighborhood.

Please submit a resume, up to five images (or a website address) and a checklist identifying the images by July 15, 2014, to
