RACC Announces Two New Calls for Public Art, Deadlines: May 27 and June 3

In response to impacts on artists due to COVID-19, the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) announces two calls for new public art; an initiative to further emerging visual artists making work in Oregon and Southwest Washington and a direct purchase of artwork for the Visual Chronicle of Portland. Eligible artists may apply to either or both opportunities.

Consistent with RACC’s equity framework, the selection panels will prioritize submissions from artists not already well represented in the Portable Works Public Art Collection, including Black artists, Indigenous artists, and artists of color.

Join us live for one of two upcoming information sessions on Zoom (or watch the recordings). You’ll learn more about the selection process, preparing digital images for your application, and have a chance to ask questions of program staff.

Call for Submissions: Visual Chronicle of Portland (Deadline: May 27, 2020)

Call to Artists: Support Beam (Deadline: June 3, 2020)
