Call for art for The Great ARTdoors 2021

40 North has recently announced the return of The Great ARTdoors and, with it, a call for participating artists. 

As the announcement states: 

As we all search for ways to build back, the power of art can once again be channeled to create vibrancy, amplify voices, and provide refuge — with this type of revitalization in mind, the Great ARTdoors, a collaboration between the Spurlock Museum, the Urbana Park District, the Champaign Park District, the Urbana Arts and Culture Program, and 40 North, is kicking off a new cycle of awarding selected local artists stipends to create outdoor art installations in several Champaign and Urbana parks and community gardens. The 10 selected artists will receive a $1,000 stipend and the artwork will be featured in 1 of 10 designated locations. Artists are asked to submit a proposal of artwork by midnight on March 14th.
