PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The city of Las Vegas is seeking an artist or multiple artists to provide high-res digital, 2-d copies of their original artwork for printing onto vinyl banners to be temporarily displayed outdoors for approximately one year, as part of an ongoing Juried Exhibition project on the First Street Art Trail. This project call is open to any art form that can be translated into a 2-d format (for example, quilters would be encouraged to submit images of quilts, or details from a quilt, as long as the images meet the technical specifications). This 8-block space hosts varying government, commercial and residential operations, including the city hall building, county jail, RTC downtown hub, Arts District, and more. Each block offers dynamic opportunities for display, as the artwork would be available to the public at all times during the exhibit. Artist(s) will be selected by block, allowing for up to eight artists’ work to be selected. Each light pole will have two banners hung on it, allowing for each artist to have 6-10 images on display per-block, depending on the block. Each printed vinyl banner will be 18 inches wide by 60 inches tall, with double sided printing.
