The Deschutes Public Library Creates New Public Art Collection

Situated in the center of Oregon, over 200,000 people call Deschutes County home.  Central Oregon, widely known for its stunning mountains, rivers, pine forests and recreational opportunities, will now be home to a new 100,000 square foot library in east Bend known as Stevens Ranch, a new branch library in Redmond and completely renovated and renewed libraries in the communities of La Pine, Sunriver and Sisters and in historic downtown Bend.  The project is funded by a voter approved bond measure.  1% of the brick and mortar costs are reserved for the purchase of art. 

Budget  The renovation and new construction of all the branches is scheduled to conclude fall of 2026.  Budgets for art per branch range from $30,000 to $900,000 for a total project budget for art of just under $1.5 million for the county wide library system.  A fundraising campaign will nearly match the amount funded by the 1% program.

The Deschutes Public Library administration appointed a Public Art Selection Committee (Art Committee), comprised of local artists, a project architect and community advocates, to represent the towns served by library branches.  The Art Committee will make recommendations to the library administration for final approval.

VISION:  Deschutes Public Library Art Collection - Diverse, Inclusive and Inspirational The renovations and new construction throughout the entire library district bring the opportunity for the district to build a new art collection.  Art in all six Deschutes Public Library branches will be diverse in both concept and material.  Works will be traditional and non-traditional and possess a lasting endurance. The DPL Art Committee seeks works in all media and genres: Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Glass, Fiber, Functional, Digital, Photography, Installation, Mixed Media, New media/genres.  Suspended from ceilings, mounted on walls, embedded in floors, anchoring a public space, works will exist in both expected and unexpected places within the building and on library grounds.  

Entry Deadline: March 31, 2024

Click Here for full prospectus

The Sculpture Forest initially has two specific themes and some other guidelines which perform best in our jurying process. Future rotating shows will be more open ended. Each of the two overarching sculptural themes has its own devoted walking trail loop.

Representation of beauty in forms of natural elements, animals, plants, ecosystems, and human interaction with the non‐civilized world. Preference is for uplifting, positive messages and experiences (or neutral ones), though we will occasionally consider works that poetically evoke the dangers and implications of environmental degradation. Sculptures should be at home in a native forest setting.

Bring on the fun! This section of the park is devoted to releasing a sense of discovery. What will appear around the next turn of the trail? Will it make the grandparents laugh? Will it make the kids say “that’s really cool”? Is it unusual or beguiling in a relatable way? Is it fantastical or well outside the norm? These are all worthy ideas for Whimsy Way.

There is a general preference for stone, some natural looking metals, and bio‐natural materials (wood, shells, antlers, etc.) in Nature Nurtured. In Whimsy Way, all materials, colors, and approaches are open ended. Sculptures should be sturdy to handle potentially appreciative hands and to hold up well in an outdoor year-round environment.

Public Art Archive

This is a call for the inclusion of public art collections in the Public Art Archive, an online database of public art. To be considered for inclusion, you must be a professional artist who has completed and installed public artwork, or an administrator of an established public art program. There is no charge to submit entries to the Public Art Archive. Public art is defined here as art that is situated in a location that is accessible or viewable by the general public and was, in most cases, commissioned by a public art entity, typically using percent-for-art or public funding. Gallery art and art exhibited inside galleries and museums is not eligible. Works of art that were commissioned and/or gifted by corporations, museums, educational institutions, private parties, and other entities may also be eligible. Permanently cited, temporary, new media, performative, rotating, and portable works may be eligible if they meet the commonly known definition of public art or civic art.

The Public Art Archive™ (PAA™), like™ (CaFE™), is powered by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF). The Western States Arts Federation is a nonprofit regional arts service organization dedicated to the development of an expanded awareness of the power of the arts. Much of the organization’s work is accomplished through the development of technologies that benefit the arts and the arts community. WESTAF created the PAA™, which launched in 2009 with the collections of a few pilot public art agencies. We are pleased to invite artists and collection managers to include their artworks on this premier database for public art.

Groundswell: City of Shoreline Public Art Program

Call for Temporary Environmental Artwork

As a means of fostering new interpretations of art and nature in urban spaces, the City of Shoreline Public Art Program seeks temporary artworks for display in parks (along trails, glades, meadows, and reclaimed gravel pits), especially Brugger’s Bog and Southwoods,to encourage audiences to visit these resources as well as to exercise and spend time in comparative silence. Walking, way-finding, and searching for the “hidden” artwork is a primary component of the project. Proposals will be juried by a selection panel consisting of an artist, art professional and/or collector, professional handler / engineer, additional community resident(s) and City staff. The City will promote the artwork on its website and newsletters, producing a map to encourage exploration of the area. For time and materials, selected artists are offered honoraria of $500 - $1,500 (depending on scope of project) following installation.

Although there is no deadline, the submission pool is reviewed quarterly.  Artists should submit materials 2 weeks before these dates for full consideration.

For More Information, please visit City of Shoreline
