Hominy Rising – Arts & Awareness on the Greenway

Call to Artists

This is a call to all craftspeople, visual and performance artists to join the Friends of the Hominy Creek in celebrating our 10th anniversary with a reflection on the history, ecology and beauty of our Greenway.  The exhibition will consist of temporary, outdoor art installations to be displayed from Saturday, October 2nd to Sunday, October 10th of 2021. Performances will be scheduled on either Saturday, October 2nd or Sunday, October 10th. Entries will be accepted June 1st through the 30th. Collaborations welcome. This is a juried exhibit. Artists will be notified of their acceptance no later than July 22nd. Exhibited artists (or teams) will receive a $100 honorarium.

The art installations are required to last 9 days outdoors but they are not permanent. Please keep in mind that all work needs to be safe for people, plants and animals and cause minimal disturbance to  the environment. The work should leave as little trace as possible when un-installed. We encourage art and performances that invite interaction from the public.

We are also planning related educational activities and welcome assistance on this.

Please reach out with any questions or clarification needed. We highly encourage you to visit the Greenway before submitting your project. We are inventing something new and it is a collective effort. We hope this will become an annual event.
