Call for Works: 2019 Art Moves Des Plaines Pop-up Exhibit

The Des Plaines Arts Council (DPAC) announces the next in a series of calls for artists to submit applications for temporary display of public art in Des Plaines. Artworks are displayed in a store front located in downtown Des Plaines. A opening reception will be held on a date to be announced after the first round of artwork is installed. Artists are responsible for the transportation, installation, and setup of their work (including providing an easel or pedestal). Artwork will be accompanied by labels identifying the artist, artwork, and directing interested patrons to the Des Plaines Arts Council website (dpartscouncil.org). A page will be posted on the DPAC website with more information about the artist, purchase price for works on display, and a link to the artist’s website (if available). Submitted works will be reviewed and juried by a committee of DPAC members and community representatives. If an exhibited work is sold during the Art Moves Des Plaines pop-up show, a 25 percent commission of the sales price will be paid to the Des Plaines Arts Council. These funds will be used to sustain future public art programs in Des Plaines. Preference may be given to work that has already been completed. Conceptual proposals will be considered if the artwork can be completed within the presented timeline, and applications are submitted with clear and detailed specifications and renderings. A signed contract, license agreement, and hold harmless agreement approved by the Des Plaines Arts Council and the property owners (where applicable) are required before artwork can be displayed. General liability insurance is not required from the artist. However, DPAC does recommend that all artists obtain property insurance to cover their work. How to Submit an Application Artists interested in submitting proposals for consideration must submit a completed application with required attachments. Applications are being accepted for the current exhibit on a rolling basis until August 30, 2019. The first round of works will be announced at the end of April 2019. The online application form is available at: https://dpartscouncil.org/art-moves-des-plaines/
