The Town of Fountain Hills Public Art Committee is accepting applications for an outdoor 2D- Exhibition themed Expressions,” with the artists interpretation on a facial expression that portrays an emotion. The origin of the face can be human, animal or plant. 

Seven finalists will have their art be digitally transposed onto 4’h x 8’w (horizontal) Dibond panels to be installed on a 100’ stucco wall located at our iconic Fountain Hills Fountain Park.  

All submittals must have a written paragraph describing the inspiration and explanation of the piece. High-resolution images 7200 x 14400 pixel minimum will be requested from the finalist. To apply for this program click on this link.

The park attracts thousands of visitors each year and the stucco wall is located on the main sidewalk with high visibility both from pedestrians and motor vehicles.

All mediums will be considered with the correct proportioned dimensions (4’h x 8’w).

 

All costs associated with the fabrication and installation of the panels will be the responsibility of the Public Art Committee. Artists chosen for this project will receive a $200 honorarium and the artwork will be featured on the Public Art Committee website.
