EXPLORATORY CALL FOR ARTISTS
Holden Forests & Gardens is seeking one or more artists to create artwork or botanical displays that are Halloween themed for exhibitions during the month of October at the Cleveland Botanical Garden.
Displays could be located indoors at the Eppig Gallery, or outside on the garden grounds including the Hershey Children’s Garden. Visual artwork should pertain to themes that are botanical in nature. Any thematic displays should include and/or be made of botanical materials such as pumpkins, gourds, corn, hay bales, straw, wood, leaves, or any other related flora.
The content of the artwork and displays must be family friendly – seasonal and spooky (not scary) are the desired characteristics.
If chosen the artist could work possibly get assistance from our horticulture staff to install the artwork, however there is no guarantee of that as a resource. If interested please send your portfolio website or images of related work to Jillian Slane, Director of Exhibits and Experiences at email@example.com by 5:00pm on Friday, July 26, 2019
This is an exploratory call for artists and there is no guarantee of a final opportunity.
