WHAT DESERVES A MONUMENT, MEMORIAL, OR WORK OF ART IN SANTA FE?Monumental Dreams & Conversations
CHART IS SEEKING
that will create a pool of prospective monuments, memorials, and works of public art
that communicates what is important to residents of the city and county of
Santa Fe, New Mexico. The goal of “Monumental Dreams and Conversations”
is to express who and what we value as well as generate conversations
about the movements, events, things, places, and people that matter to us.
THE DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS HAS PASSED.
USE THE FORM TO:
TELL A STORY that needs to be heard.
NAME AND DESCRIBE IN WORDS A MONUMENT, MEMORIAL, OR WORK OF PUBLIC ART AND/OR UPLOAD AN IMAGE. Remember that your monument can be vertical, horizontal, figurative, abstract, etc. It can also be permanent or temporary (e.g. performance, sound art, “happenings”). Consider ways in which people will be able to see, hear, touch, smell and taste this monument. We encourage out-of-the-box imagining.
PROVIDE A GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION for your monument, memorial, work of public art so we can see which neighborhood, specific location, particular landscape you envision as its special place. Any location within the city or county of Santa Fe is acceptable.
PROVIDE CONTACT INFORMATION so that we know who you are.
YOUR FORM WILL BE SHARED PUBLICLY as a way to celebrate our collective imaginings, stories, and values.
INDIVIDUALS AS WELL AS GROUPS AND ORGANIZATIONS ARE WELCOMED TO SUBMIT A PROPOSAL. Neighborhood groups are also encouraged to submit. Collaborations are welcome.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A PROFESSIONAL ARTIST TO SUBMIT AN IDEA. You can submit a description in words rather than a drawing, if you wish. Drawings and/or words are acceptable.
WE ARE HOPING FOR A DIVERSE POOL OF PROPOSALS that will collectively represent the richness of the Santa Fe community. Please share this call for proposals with others.
