The Town of Vail Environmental Sustainability Team invites artists to submit their qualifications and images of previous artwork to include painting, pastel or drawing for consideration in the townwide program to educate the public about storm drains and promote the health of Gore Creek. The selected artists will be commissioned to create an original and specific work depicting one of five Colorado wildlife species that live in or near Gore Creek, such as cutthroat trout, bald eagle, moose, American dipper, boreal toad, American beaver or other species at the artist’s suggestion. The images will be digitally transferred to a slip-resistant decal which will be adhered in proximity to selected storm drains throughout the town of Vail. Selected artists will receive a $500 stipend.
Interested artists must submit a letter of interest indicating your vision and approach for the project (limit one page), visual support materials of previous work (10 images max) and an annotated image list to accompany any submitted images. Submissions are due March 12.
