Due: Friday, February 27, 2015
Art on the Llano is accepting submissions from Texas and New Mexico artists for large, outdoor public artworks to be placed at major, high-traffic interchanges in Lubbock, Texas. This initiative seeks to enhance the quality of the visual landscape of our community, provide quality cultural presentation to both citizens and visitors, encourage creative activity, foster community identity, support economic development, and improve aesthetic values through educational opportunities.
Art on the Llano is a consortium of Lubbock groups supporting art in the community including the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts, the Buddy Holly Center, Civic Lubbock, and Visit Lubbock, Texas Tech University School of Art and the Texas Tech University Public Art Collection.
Since 2012 Art on the Llano has supported two-year sculpture installations in Lubbock’s public sphere by selecting works proposed by artists and installing them at major traffic intersections.
Up to Three (3) works will be selected for a two (2) year installation. A $4,000 honorarium for each sculpture and a $500 shipping allocation will be awarded to the selected artists.
