Milwaukie’s Arts Committee, known as “artMOB,” is seeking submission for the third round of sculptures to be featured in the City Hall Sculpture Garden from September 2012 to August 2014.
The sculptures should represent the elements of nature—earth, wind, fire or water—or and interpretation thereof. Deadline to apply is August 3, 2012. For detailed requirements see the City of Milwaukie’s website here: http://bids.teamaha.com/milwaukie/rfp/request-sculptures.
The City Hall Sculpture Garden has six pedestals for displaying a rotating collection—half are new every year. All the pieces are on loan and are for sale. Last year’s theme was “Dazzle Me with Color” and the committee selected “Jump,” by Francisco Salgado, “Everlasting Bouquet” by Jenell Wedding and “The Story of Robin Hood” by Jesse Swickard.
The Milwaukie Arts Committee was formed in 2008 and adopted the name “artMOB” –which is an acronym for ‘Art—Milwaukie on Board’. To learn more about artMOB see the website here: http://www.artmob.net.
