Open call for artist proposals
The Sun Valley Center for the Arts will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its Wine Auction fundraiser. The Center is inviting artists to submit proposals for artwork made from wine barrels. Proposals are due Feb. 15. Ten artists will be chosen to execute their projects, which will be displayed in Ketchum in July and sold to the highest bidders during the Wine Auction, July 21-23. Proceeds from the auction allow The Center to continue to offer high-quality, affordable arts programming to the entire Wood River Valley community. The 10 artists chosen will each receive $500, and one People's Choice winner, chosen by popular vote, will receive $1,000.
Artwork must use at least one of the barrel heads and one of the hoops, must be portable and must be able to be displayed outside. The Center will supply the barrels. For full details on deadlines and other requirements, visit www.sunvalleycenter.org or call 726-9491.
