Pump House Pilot Program
The Town of Fountain Hills Public Art Committee is accepting applications for an outdoor 2D- Exhibition themed
“Legends and Lore of the Valley of the Sun.” Any artists or photographers are encouraged to apply.
Eight finalist will have their art be digitally transposed onto 4’h x 8’w (horizontal) Dibond brushed metals panel to be installed on a 100’ stucco wall located at our iconic Fountain Hills Fountain Park.
All submittals must have a written paragraph describing the inspiration and explanation of the piece and only high-resolution images 7200 x 14400 pixel minimum will be considered.
The park attracts thousands of visitors each year and the stucco wall is located on the main sidewalk with high visibility both from pedestrians and motor vehicles.
All mediums will be considered with the correct proportioned dimensions (4’h x 8’w).
All costs associated with the fabrication and installation of the metal panels will be the responsibility of the Public Art Committee. Artists chosen for this project will receive a $300 honorarium and the artwork will be featured on the Public Art Committee website.
Call to Artists – July 8, 2022
Deadline – September 30, 2022
Jurying - October 2022
Installation – November 2022
Display – November 2022 – October 2023
This project would be a pilot program for a one-year period. During that year, public support of the project will determine if the committee continues the program. The benefits of this project will allow for professional art to be on display, changing every year offering a fresh, new visual perspective and theme.
