Open Call Extension - Colossal, Elmhurst Art Museum, & City Museum
Call for Proposals
Par Excellence Redux
curated by Christopher Jobson, founder of Colossal
Organized by the Elmhurst Art Museum and will travel to the City Museum of St. Louis.
In a unique collision of recreation and art, the Elmhurst Art Museum will commission an 18-hole artist-designed golf course in homage to the wildly popular 1988 exhibition Par Excellence at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The fully playable course will be conceived and fabricated by a new group of contemporary artists, designers, and architects selected through an open call process. Designed to fill the entirety of the museum’s interior galleries, the course will be comprised of a surprisingly varied collection of themes and forms, promising an unusual twist on a familiar pastime.
