RFx of the Day:
West Windsor Arts Council
As RFx professionals with clients in a wide variety of industries, we keep an eye out for new opportunities to drop. With a focus on public art creation and installation, this one caught our attention.
The West Windsor Arts Council (WWAC) has released a public call for artists wishes to create a “permanent, outdoor, township-wide, family-friendly series of public sculpture installations” to commemorate Orson Welles’ 1938 “War of the Worlds” broadcast.
The “War of the Worlds” broadcast told terrified listeners that alien spacecraft had landed in Grover’s Mill in West Windsor carrying malicious Martians that wished to take over the United States. Just as this event excited and united residents, the WWAC wishes to “provide high quality cultural programming that brings people together and transforms the world around us.”
Artists must be at least 18 years of age and their designs must heed the following specifications:
- Sculptures must display Martin-like images or images relating to the “War of the Worlds”
- Sculptures must be family friendly and refrain from violence, nudity, bias, and hate
- Sculptures must be safe (i.e. no sharp edges, points, climbing hazards, or barbed wire) and must be durable enough to exist outdoors through all kinds of weather.
