Ketchum Issues Call for Artists

KETCHUM, Idaho – The city of Ketchum invites professional artists, architects or designers to apply for a new, long-term interactive sculpture for a site on the city’s Fourth Street Heritage Corridor. The original artwork selected will be displayed on an outdoor pedestal beginning in late fall 2019 and become a permanent part of the city’s art collection.

Three semifinalists will be selected by the Ketchum Arts Commission and receive a stipend of $500 upon submission of proposal. Finalist will receive a budget of $29,000, inclusive of artist fee, design, engineering, materials, fabrication, shipping and installation. 

The sculpture will be interactive in nature, allowing viewers of varying ages to interact with the piece in some way. Interactivity could include kinetic elements that allow viewers to alter the sculpture or set it into motion, optical devices, elements that allow viewers to create sound, or motion-activated elements.

The call for artists, which provides detailed information on the submission process, can be found at www.ketchumidaho.org/arts. The deadline for submission is March 25, 2019, no later than 5 p.m. 

The call is open to all artists, regardless of their state of residence. Local artists are encouraged to apply.
