Call for Artists:
Moab ArTTrails is pleased to invite artists to apply for consideration to be featured in Moab ArTTrails First Annual Sculpture Exhibition.  Installation and opening artist festivities for this premier downtown exhibition will coincide with the Red Rock Arts Festival and Street Fair, October 14th, 2017.
Up to ten artists will be chosen to display sculptures along a walking path through central Moab for the period of one year from the time of installation, Saturday, October 14th.  Artists may submit up to 2 pieces for consideration and selected artists will receive a $500 honorarium and two nights accommodations in Moab, Utah, a colorful community and world renowned destination located between Canyonlands and Arches National parks, visited by millions annually.

In recognition of the benefits that public art brings to the culture and economy of the community, Moab City and Grand County have committed to purchasing a piece from this exhibition valued up to $10,000 for the permanent collection. Through the duration of the exhibit, residents and visitors will be encouraged to vote. The winner will be the “People’s Choice” and will receive a $1000 award. The ballot for peoples’ choice will include a narrative section which can help guide city planners in the development of the public collection, and in the curation of the commonly held spaces suitable for artistic commemoration. 

Mark the dates! To find out more, to get involved in this new public art program and to submit works that just might become part of the lasting beauty of Moab, go to www.moabarttrails.org.
