National and international artists are invited to submit qualifications

The Art Selection Committee for the Oregon Institute of Technology Village for Sustainable Living seeks artwork to enhance and animate the outdoor living spaces of this residence hall. Work defining and lending character to the three outside common areas of the apartment units may involve passive use of wind, solar or other sustainable technologies. Creating a sense of place and belonging for resident students while providing inspiration that emphasizes sustainable life styles, innovation and opportunities for learning is foremost.

Submissions must be received in person or by mail at the Arts Commission offices by 5PM, September 9, 2011.  The approximate art budget for this project is $115,000, which will include artist fees, and fabrication, insurance, shipping, travel, installation, documentation, and all other project costs. These funds may be divided between multiple art projects.  Please review the full project description..

Oregon Days of Culture 2011: Bigger and Better

In 2010, organizations in 65 cities and towns hosted 599 Days of Culture events: film screenings, live performances, tours, exhibits, readings, dinners, community gatherings, volunteer activities, and family events.

2011’s celebration will be the farthest reaching yet, with additional events, greater visibility, and more participants than ever:  This Is Culture: 2011 Oregon Photo Contest, Fundraising video and your organization.

Increase attendance at your events, raise awareness of your good work, and maybe even win $1,000 to support your efforts (without even writing a grant request!). Here’s how:

Starting August 17, 2011, list all of your Days of Culture events (October 1-8) on OregonDaysOfCulture.org. We’ll promote them to thousands of participants around the state. We’ll even link back to your website.

Urge your fans and advocates to enter the photo contest. Two winners will earn the right to make $1,000 donations to a cultural nonprofit of their choice—which could be yours. Share the fundraising video by embedding it in your website and pointing to it from emails, Facebook, and Twitter.
