New public art opportunity for ArtFields 2021

Proposal submission deadline: February 1, 2021

The ArtFields Collective is excited to announce a brand-new aspect of ArtFields for the 2021 event!

The world-famous Hub Calls for Art Megaphone.

In addition to the competition, there will be large scale/installation pieces in key places outside around downtown. Each year, the Collective hears from artists with large outdoor pieces that transporting their work to Lake City is just not feasible for a 9-day period. With this new initiative, we aim to make ArtFields a place to explore artists’ big ideas.

Now let’s get down to the details:

Artists can submit a proposal from Dec. 1, 2020 to Feb. 1, 2021. The proposal should include the concept, photos and needs (ex. Volunteers, accommodation, materials, transportation). Up to 5 artists will be invited to install their work beginning March 2021 for display through ArtFields 2021 into early 2022. Selected artists will be offered assistance to bring their artwork to Lake City and install.

While selected art will be on display during ArtFields 2021, this is not part of the ArtFields competition. If artists are accepted into the competition and invited to install public art, they must choose which to participate in.
