$90,000 Schweitzer Roundabout Public Art Proposal
with Carol Deaner and Eli Susnis
Of the Sandpoint Arts Commission
Presented at THE CONVERSATION
Wednesday, November 8th from 6-8 PM
At Ivano’s Ristorante
What is your vision for the $90,000 Schweitzer Roundabout Public Art structure? Using timber, agricultural, technological, recreational, and creative industries for themes, what would you sculpt? The Sandpoint Arts Commission seeks vibrant public art for installation at this gateway to Sandpoint. A successful proposal will reflect the multi-use nature of the location as well as the city's love for its pristine land and water. The project is open to all artists residing in the United States, though the jury may give special consideration to artists living in Idaho, Montana, Washington, or Oregon. Suggestions will be welcomed, as well as the submission protocol will be shared. Find more information: www.cityofsandpoint.com/Home/Components/RFP/RFP/40/180
