shihlun:

A giant helium balloon bearing the face of an ojisan (middle-aged man) appeared in the sky in Utsunomiya on Sunday, in an event organized by the Utsunomiya Museum of Art to bring artwork to the public outside museums.

The balloon measures 15 meters in diameter and features the face of a man who lives in the city. The man was selected from 218 applicants.

DEADLINE JANUARY 9th: Metro Arts Forte Legacy Project

Budget

A $500 stipend will be awarded to up to three (3) finalists for the development of design concepts.  A $10,000 stipend will be provided to the selected Iowa artist/artist team in conjunction with developing the public art project and working with the public in its creation.

What they are looking for:

·       Celebrates the positive impact of the arts in the community

·       Involves the collaborative participation of community members of all ages in the creation process, culminating with the 2015 Des Moines Arts Festival

·       Is fabricated using primarily found and/or re-cycled materials, in keeping with Metro Arts’ “Green Arts” theme

·       Contains an educational component that teaches participants about the medium of creation and/or conservation

·       Is durable enough for long-term exhibition.
