CALL FOR ARTWORK Submission deadline is Saturday, September 7, 2019 by 8:00 pm MST. Applications and finalized designs must be submitted to: email@example.com. ABOUT THE ARTS COUNCIL Daybreak is a unique community that embraces the values of community, family, healthy living, and a commitment to the arts and diversity. LiveDAYBREAK Community Council is a creation of the developer and has made a long-term commitment to public art in the Daybreak community. The Daybreak Arts Council is an initiative of the LiveDAYBREAK Community Council tasked with implementing its goals in installing public art pieces throughout the Daybreak community. The Daybreak Arts Council is a resident-led council. PROJECT DETAILS The Daybreak community prides itself on being a walkable, bikeable community. The intention of this project is to merge public art with functionality pertaining to the storage of bikes that are ridden to public locations throughout Daybreak. The Daybreak Arts Council will install multiple unique, permanent outdoor art pieces that will function as bike racks, each with the ability to secure or organize multiple bikes, for use by residents and visitors who recreate in the various public and open spaces throughout the community. This project will feature a variety of art pieces that have the ability to function as bike racks. Multiple submissions will be selected for this project. Artists may use pre-fabricated bike racks or may create pieces of their own. Artists may manipulate the pieces into artwork however they best see fit. Selected bike racks will have the ability to secure multiple bikes and/or organize them. Designs for the bike racks should be whimsical, playful, and artistic. The locations in which the bike racks will be installed are areas utilized by families within the Daybreak community and the pieces will need to engage a wide range of the residential demographic. These locations include the SoDa Row area of Daybreak and various parks, pools, and open spaces throughout the community. Selected pieces will be installed no later than Thursday, October 31, 2019. Installation, though not transportation to installation sites, will be covered by LiveDAYBREAK. Artists should indicate how each piece that is submitted may be installed (i.e. bolted, welded, etc.). For additional information that will be required with each submission, see page 3.
