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.

Meow Wolf is a collective of over 300 creators bonded by a passion for art across a variety of media, including architecture, sculpture, painting, photography, video production, cross-reality (AR/VR/MR), music, audio engineering, narrative writing, costuming, performance, and more. Meow Wolf champions otherness, weirdness, challenging norms, radical inclusion, and the power of creativity to change the world.

Meow Wolf’s first permanent installation, the THEA Award-winning House of Eternal Return, launched in March 2016 with support from Game of Thrones creator, George R.R. Martin. Inside, guests discover a multidimensional mystery house with secret passages, portals to magical worlds, and an expansive narrative amidst surreal, maximalist, and mesmerizing art exhibits. Located in Santa Fe, HOER features a children’s learning center, a cafe and bar, and a highly-rated music venue.

AIGA MN along with 10 Thousand Design will host a FREE private screening of “Meow Wolf: Origin Story”— a high-adrenaline documentary that follows the seven eclectic founding members and hundreds of volunteers as they struggle with fracture, loss, success, and failure over a decade, while constantly redefining themselves and what art can really be. The film is an artistic explosion in and of itself, throwing down a kaleidoscope of color, sound, and music that brings this crazy, highly inspiring ride to life.
