Call for Art Installations, Art in the Park, 2023

Art in the Park seeks proposals for site-specific or site-adaptive immersive art installations to be installed for the weekend of June 3-4, 2023 as part of the annual Art in the Park event. This year’s event aims to cultivate a more immersive experience, offering guests spaces throughout the event to interact with large-scale experiential and/or participatory works.

The theme for this year’s installations is Whimsical Forest. Artists considering applying should use the following ideas to guide them in their submissions:

Whimsy: Playful, colorful, fanciful, amusing

Magic: Powerful, mysterious, exciting, influential

Nature: Flora and fauna, growth, life-cycles, and environment

Density: Networks, roots and branchs, fullness, layering

Interested artists should fill out the online application form and be prepared to provide basic information including: contact information, bio, CV, and website. As well as: 3-5 examples of previous work; 2-3 sketches/samples of work proposed for Art in the Park; brief description of the project clearly stating the site, how it will be installed, and what materials are needed to create the project (if any) that CAL can help secure.

All installations must be firmly secured to the site, weather proof, available to be installed on June 2rd, and remain on site June 3 & 4, de-installed on the evening of the 4th. No balloons please.
