WEATHERWAX ART PROJECT ANNOUNCES “CALL TO ARTISTS”

January 31, 2012

The City of Aberdeen Arts Commission and the City of Aberdeen, have announced a “Call To Artists” for the creation of a significant three-dimensional artwork that will be funded by the Grays Harbor Community Foundation. The Simpson Triangle, a highly trafficked site between the business districts of Aberdeen and Hoquiam, will be the location of the resulting artwork. It is intended to honor the legacy of the Weatherwax family and inspire both residents and those that pass through Grays Harbor. The artwork will incorporate salvaged sandstone blocks from the old J.M Weatherwax High School.

This project is open to professional artists residing in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia. An artist selection panel will review all eligible applicant materials and select up to three finalists to develop proposals. The finalists will be paid $5,000 to travel to Aberdeen, develop a proposal, and present the proposal to the selection panel. The panel will review the finalists’ proposals and select one artist for the commission.
