Art Decko Proposal Submission
PROJECT MISSION: To revive the AAAC Art Decko project by replacing the previous artwork located in the stairwell of the College Avenue parking deck with new paintings.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: In collaboration with the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission (ACAC) and the Athens Downtown Development Authority (ADDA), the Athens Area Arts Council (AAAC) is reviving an original Arts Council project that promotes public art in unexpected places. Launched over a decade ago, the first installment of Art Decko featured panels designed by art classes at various local elementary, middle, and high schools. The material lifespan of the original Art Decko panels has ended and they are currently being donated back to the participating school. For this second installment of Art Decko, we will be hanging original artwork painted on 4' x 8' wood panels hung indefinitely in the College Avenue parking deck, located at 265 College Ave, Athens, GA 30601.
SELECTION PROCESS: This opportunity is open to artists living in Athens-Clarke County or surrounding counties. Proposals will be reviewed by a selection committee made up of representatives from the AAAC, ACAC and ADDA. The committee will choose the proposals that will be the best public art pieces for the College Avenue deck. Each artist will be compensated $500 for their completed painting. Please see the photos below for an idea of the color scheme of the parking deck, as well as the location of the pieces, which will hang to the right of the door on levels 2-7, and on the wall adjacent to the elevator on the ground floor.
PROPOSAL DEADLINE: November 1st, 2017
