The City of Grants Pass Committee on Public Art (CoPA) invites artists 18 years of age and
older to submit original artwork in any 2-D or 3-D media with the exception of video/film,
installation or performance art for Art in Motion.

This public art project is essentially a gallery on wheels; artwork is displayed on 54” x 34” vinyl
print on both sides of one of the Josephine Community Transit buses. The art is there to
engage people, expand public art visibility, create opportunities for the community to
experience art in everyday life and enhance the overall artistic climate of the City of Grants

This prospectus solicits submissions for two exhibition periods. The first is from January 2022
through June 2022, and the second from July through December 2022. The work will be
selected based on originality, artistic conception, and quality. An effort will be made to
represent a broad diversity of styles, media, and disciplines. One or two artists may be chosen
for each exhibition period.

Media Eligibility:

All artists working in, but not limited to, the following disciplines are invited to
submit “High Resolution” images of their work: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography,
digital graphics, engravings, sculpture, glass, wood, metal/jewelry, ceramics, fiber arts, mixed
media, and assemblage. Video/film, installation art and performance art are not appropriate
disciplines for the Art in Motion project.

name. (Storage devices may or may not be returned.)

3. A hard copy printout of your inventory of images.


Image Format:

Images must be clear and professionally presented.T
• Images must be submitted in high-resolution jpeg format on a CD or USB thumb
drive. For clarity of reproduction, the resolution needs to be as high as possible.

use on the poster, quality of the photos, and their scalability will be considered
during the process to ensure the best possible image for public viewing.

• Three-dimensional art pieces should be photographed against a neutral
background. The background can be either flat or graded.
