Community Art Project and Map: NEA Big Read Project

  • Deadline:
  • Budget: $3000 compensation, inclusive of artist fees, travel, and other expenses. There is an additional $1000 in material expenses for the community project. Printing of the map is not the responsibility of the artist or artist team.
  • Eligibility: Artist or artist team experienced in illustration, typography, and/or printmaking

Gallery One and CWU Libraries seeks an artist or artist team experienced in illustration, typography, and/or printmaking to facilitate a community art project and develop an illustration to be used as a map in response to the themes of Ross Gay’s Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude in conjunction with the National Endowment for the Arts Big Read Grant and associated programming.

The artist or artist team will illustrate a walking map of sites pre-identified by a writer and a naturalist in preparation for two public workshops on April 29 and May 6, to be reproduced on a tri-fold brochure. Prompts will be provided to the artist mid-February for art to be completed by mid-March. Participation in workshops is encouraged but not required.

The artist or artist team is invited to work with the community to create artworks incorporating the themes community, resiliency, connectivity. The public art project will take place at the Ellensburg Public Library on May 6 as part of other planned programming. The project may be temporary, may result in individual artworks given to community members, or may result in a permanent public piece but should be able to be displayed at Gallery One between May 5- July 29. The exhibit space can also be a site for continued engagement of the piece.
