HarborWalk Public Art Challenge Budgets $47,000- Call For Art FAQ Part 1


Catherine Ryan writes-

Hi Joey,

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that the Committee for the Arts has received from artists as they are going about applying for the Gloucester HarborWalk Public Art Challenge:

Topping the list: What if an artist has more than one proposal? What do they do?

Q: Can I propose more than one concept?
A: Yes. The Call specifies that artists may submit up to two (2) concept/proposals.For clarification, a submission may be submitted by a collaborative team, but each Artist may only be associated with up to two (2) proposals. However, do not enter two concepts in one proposal.

Q. Can I propose photography?

  1. Yes. From the complete call:


We’re talking sculpture, murals, light installations, dance performance, theater, print edition, symphony, etc, etc

“With the footprint for this CALL, there are unlimited possible exhibition and unexpected and surprising spaces for the creative art(s) and other programming. The City of Gloucester encourages artists working in all creative arts to apply. There are no media restrictions: all media and art forms will be considered. Media and artforms for public art projects might include but are not limited to: visual art; place-making, singular event (e.g., sculpture, multi-media, interactive, illumination, integrated); temporary or ephemeral installations (e.g., panels, light, etc); performance work of all kind (e.g., symphony, dance, theater, spectacle/action within the footprint, etc) static or roving; participatory works; transformation of surfaces or extant structures; projection; event-based work; and environmentally-based work.”

Taping of Bacala Video with Felicia and Sefatia Part 1 From Gianni Gallo and Joe Langhan

Gianni and Joe are the men behind the Taste of The Times Videos at the Gloucester Daily Times Website- this is from them-

Felicia and Sefatia (“the Godmother”) got together to tape a segment on how Felicia’s Grandmother taught her to make a special bacala dish for the traditional Italian meal of the seven fishes on Christmas Eve. This is the first of three parts of the original footage. The entire shoot lasted over 45 minutes, which was edited down to a 10 minute video. (You can see that video at http://food.gloucestertimes.com/video/Baccala-Italian-Style-Codfish.html) Some have asked to see the entire production, with little or no editing. Here is Part 1.
