Seeking Artists for Temporary Public Art Program - Adirondack Chairs

The City is inviting qualified professional artists and high school student artist working under the supervision of a professional artist or art teacher to submit designs for decorated Adirondack chairs. Adirondack chairs will be awarded to different artists based on their design. Artists will be given the option to submit a design for one chair or a set of two chairs.
The Adirondack Chairs will be on view from March 2020 through September 2020. At the end of the exhibition, all the chairs will be sold in an auction during a City fall event.
The City Council has selected the theme “New American Backyard.” The chairs will be on temporary display for public viewing at selected business, parks, and events throughout Dublin.
The City will pay a stipend of $1,000 to each artist or, if the artist is a student or student team, to the supervising professional artist or art teacher. The $1,000 stipend will be paid to the artist whether they choose to design one chair or a two-chair set.
