Call for Artist Proposals – (Gander Airport Piano)
Deadline: Monday October 14, 2019
Our #ComePlayWithMeNL Public Piano Program is flying to the Gander Airport!
We are now seeking submissions from artists for the design and painting of a new piano, sponsored by the smash hit Broadway musical Come From Away, for placement at Gander International Airport. The theme for the design is the award-winning musical based on the hospitality experienced by travellers in the days following 9-11. It should employ the colours and aesthetic of the show’s logo and branding for the production.
Design can include any media, but must not impede the musical functioning of the piano. The artist will be responsible for the cost of all art materials. The design must include the #ComePlayWithMeNL hashtag, as well as Business & Arts NL’s website (businessandartsnl.com). Business & Arts NL will place a 12” x 24” sign on top of the piano, indicating the Sponsorship, and is offering $1,400 in payment, plus a one-year membership in our organization. The successful artist will also receive media focus, including still-image and video content, as part of the promotion surrounding this project.
If you are interested in designing the Come From Away/Gander Airport piano, please submit the following components no later than midnight on Monday October 14, 2019.
a) a 100-200 word biography
b) at least 5 jpegs of past work
c) a brief description of your design concept for the piano
