Midway Public Art Festival RFP

The Midway Public Art Working Group, Hamline Midway Coalition and the Friends of Hamline Park are co-hosting the Midway Public Art Festival at Hamline Park in St. Paul on June 29 from 11am-3pm. The festival will highlight the diverse talents of neighborhood artists through interactive public art, while providing a welcoming gathering for local residents and soccer fans attending the Minnesota United game that day at Allianz Field.

Request for Proposals – Deadline May 24.

The Midway Public Art Working Group is seeking public art proposals for its Public Art Festival at Hamline Park in St. Paul on June 29 from 11am-3pm. The festival will highlight the diverse range, experiences, and talents of neighborhood artists, while providing a welcoming gathering for neighborhood residents and soccer fans attending the Minnesota United game that day at Allianz Field. We are seeking 8-12 artists, who will be paid between $150-250, depending on the length of the performance participation, during the 4-hour festival.

We encourage you to define public art as broadly as possible and think outside the box. The only requirement is that the proposal must involve some sort of action, performance, or interactive component that engages with a public audience or space. In other words, visual art is acceptable if it is accompanied by some sort of interactive art-making or art-related activity. Proposals can, for example, include dance, song, live painting, miming, acrobatics, sound or light projects, projections, etc.

Our commitment to varied and diverse forms of cultural and artistic expression reinforces a further commitment to honoring the varied and diverse identities and values shaping our community.  We strongly encourage proposals from those often underrepresented in the arts, and particularly encourage emerging artists, persons of color and Indigenous people to apply. Artists must live, work, or go to school in the Hamline Midway neighborhood.

Please submit your proposal, in any language, either by email or by video, along with documentation of any past artwork, to midwaypublicart@gmail.com. If you are sending an email, please limit the proposal to 250 words. Submissions are due May 24.

Sound & Soundings October 29, 7:30-8:30pm

The range of a bell, inscribed in a classical perspective of harmony, served to define a territory that was haunted by the notion of limits as well as the threat of those limits being transgressed.
–Alain Corbin, Village Bells
 
Auditory communities are created when we all hear (or are forced to hear) the same sounds. Inclusive and excluding, such communities are formed or fractured, coalesced or disrupted by our ever-increasing use of portable electronic devices. In the era of bluetooth speakers and earbuds, we find ever more complicated ways to reach out or to close off, both positions fundamentally made possible through technological engagements. Sound is social; it can also be a weapon. Silence is golden; it can also sunder. Somewhere between these poles we all function. Tonight students and faculty in two classes that deal with sound in very different ways come together to think through its implications.
