A workshop for artists on the best ways to find public art opportunities and how to apply for public art projects will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 31, at the Center for Design Innovation, 450 Design Avenue, Winston-Salem.
Jeff York, the public and cultural arts administrator for the town of Chapel Hill, will lead the workshop. Topics will include where to find public art opportunities, how to apply for public art commissions, evaluating project sites, crafting submission letters and more.
The workshop is being organized by the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Public Art Commission as a way to involve more local artists in public art projects, said David Finn, the chair of the Public Art Commission. "Because Winston-Salem has such an active arts community, the commission wants to make sure local artists have the opportunity and the know-how to go about applying for public art projects," Finn said.
The workshop is free, but attendees are asked to register in advance so York can send them a brief questionnaire about their art. York will use this information to tailor the presentation to the attendees’ needs.
