A Call for Art Watershed Art Group Requests Proposal for Sculpture Installation Bandersnatch Trail, Ashland Watershed, Ashland, Oregon

The Watershed Art Group, in cooperation with the City of Ashland Public Arts Commission, with assistance of a grant from the Haines and Friends Fund, is seeking proposals for a three dimensional sculpture to be permanently installed along Bandersnatch Trail in the Ashland Watershed as part of the Watershed Art Project’s “Art Trail.” The concept will be initially displayed in Ashland, and will eventually become the second piece to be situated on the trail. It will follow the well-received “Pacific Fisher” created by Jeremy Criswell of Jacksonville, Oregon. We are including the possibility of sculptures made from natural materials in the Watershed as well as ephemeral art.
