GREEN PARADE

Here is something I found, that seems pretty interesting… a GREEN ART PARADE!

I took this from the LACN Digest #3040

Green Public Art Consultancy invites artists, performers and designers

to create floats, placards, portable sculptures, kites, performances,

art bikes, balloons and street spectacles for a Green Art Parade! Parade

entries can make political statements, environmental messages. For

inspiration, visit this pinterest board to get those wheels turning!

The route will begin at a location TBD in North Park and will conclude

at Art Produce (3139 University Ave, San Diego, CA 92104). Participants

must be able to walk, run, and/or roll the entire route. The route will

not exceed 1 mile in length.

The Green Art Parade will occur on two dates, Saturday, July 13, 2013

and Saturday, August 10, 2013 from 7:00 – 8:00pm. An artist’s

reception at the Art Produce gallery and garden will immediately follow

each event. The parade will coincide with North Park’s Ray@Night

(http://www.northparkarts.org/).

To extend the ephemeral nature of the parade, Green Public Art

Consultancy intends to exhibit a number of Green Art Parade entries in

the Art Produce gallery and garden space from July 8, 2013 – August

18, 2013. Art Produce is a unique, artist-run, storefront exhibition

space and public art experience in North Park, San Diego. The gallery,

entirely visible from the sidewalk, is designed to accommodate

sculptural installations, cross-disciplinary works, digital media, and

performance events. http://www.artproduce.org/

ELIGIBILITY: This call is open to all artists residing in Southern

California. Artists living in San Diego are especially encouraged to

apply.

CRITERIA: Selected artists / teams will have experience creating

artworks that express green design theories, utilize green materials and

techniques, or express a significant environmental concern; have

previously demonstrated a successful collaboration on a project; and are

available to participate in a minimum of two public art parades.
