Buckeye creators sought for new series

     (AAPNW) – The Dublin Arts Council puts Ohio artists on notice about the new series in the public artwork program, entitled the “Riverboxes Tributary Project” that will be installed in April 2011 in the Kaltenbach and Homestead Parks in Dublin. Artists are encouraged to express their intent to Janet Cooper by email: cooper@dublinaarts.org  by Friday, October 1 for the commission that will consist of three new Riverboxes. Currently seven of the nine Riverboxes are on view, which were installed in 2007 and 2009.

     Part of “Ripple Effect: Artistic Impact of the Scioto River”, the Riverboxes are permanent, three-dimensional site-specific public artworks that contain an artist-made stamp and journal. DAC provides clues and public information about the location of the Riverboxes to engage the community in search, exploration and discovery, where participants combine map-reading or GPS skills and artistic pursuit with ‘treasure hunts’ in scenic locations.

     Full application details are available for download at www.dublinarts.org. Each commissioned artist will receive $800 in artist fees and $200 for materials. Deadline for submission is Thursday, October 14.

     For more information on Dublin Arts Council, see: www.dublinarts.org or call 614.889.7444, including more on letterboxing and geocaching, www.letterboxing.org  or www.geocaching.com.
