Agency seeking artists for design banners

Thursday, September 29, 2011

TERRE HAUTE -- Art Spaces, Inc., Wabash Valley Outdoor Sculpture Collection is seeking artists interested in designing new banners for the Terre Haute Arts Corridor.

The Arts Corridor is a designated section of 7th Street beginning at Poplar Street and continuing to Tippecanoe Street.

Up to 20 new vertical banners will be installed on light poles between Poplar and Cherry streets.

The first banner design competition took place in 2006.

Artist Sala Wong's winning design served as the designation for the Arts Corridor since that time.

Artists and art students 18-older, who are living, working or attending schools in Clay, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion and Vigo counties are eligible to apply.

Five finalists will each receive $50.

Following the final review, the winning entry will be awarded $750.

The final design will be produced in November in collaboration with Energize Terre Haute and Downtown Terre Haute, Inc.

Anyone interested in receiving guidelines for submission should send a self-addressed stamped envelope to Arts Corridor Design Competition, in care of Art Spaces, Inc., 669 Ohio Street, Terre Haute, Ind., 47807.
