Call for Artists: Public Art Purchase Opportunity – Behavioral Health Resource Center
The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) is seeking artists living in Oregon and Southwest Washington to submit portable scale original two-dimensional artworks for direct purchase into the Public Art Collection at Multnomah County’s newly constructed Behavioral Health Resource Center.Our preference is to spend a maximum of $2000 per artwork. The budget available for these purchases comes from Multnomah County’s Percent for Art Program and totals approximately $50,000.
This project is seeking artists to submit original 2-D portable scale art works for direct purchase. These artworks will be installed throughout the five floors of this building that offer transitional housing via a 30-day shelter and a 90-day shelter. This building will be open to visitors who will have access to showers, laundry, peer counseling, housing, meal service and additional services.
To avoid the potential to trigger a negative emotional response in visitors and users of the building, the interior color scheme and artworks connected to the building are designed to be trauma-informed.
The due date to apply for this opportunity is Monday, November 28th, 2022 by 11:59pm PST.
HOW TO APPLY
All application materials must be submitted through the RACC Opportunity Portal, an online application system. Applicants will need to create an account, or log into their existing account at www.racc.org/apply. Please email Morgan Ritter, Public Art and Exhibition Specialist for more details.
