CALL FOR ART Newton Out Doors
Wednesday, January 6, 2021 - Sunday, February 28, 2021
Newton Out Doors is a public art initiative to promote the walkability and economic vitality of Newton’s unique village centers and the enjoyment of art in a safe, socially distanced manner. It will involve the temporary outdoor installation of approximately 20 recycled wooden doors decorated with artwork by local and regional artists.
The doors will be installed and exhibited in and around several of Newton’s village centers, May – Nov 2021. Check back for a map of locations coming in May.
Artists are invited to submit design proposals and accompanying materials by February 28, 2021.
Approximately 20 door designs will be selected by a judging committee no later than March 30, 2021. (Four of the 20 doors will be reserved for current Newton high school students, as defined in the rules and guidelines.)
Artists whose designs are selected will each receive a stipend of $425 per door and will be widely promoted in regional arts, tourism, and news media.
While there will be no restriction on the designs that may be submitted, artists are asked to consider designs that inspire feelings of connection, reflection, curiosity, and joy.
