Brief Description

We are seeking an artist/s to design an outdoor sculpture that will be a primary focal point at University Center. The Bleachery Heritage Project has secured two key elements that are intended to be used for inspiration and incorporated into the design of this project. The first is a large roller print machine of the type that served as the backbone of the Bleachery operation for more than 50 years. The available machine is not currently assembled. The second element is a large stone archway that at one time served as the main entry to the site.We are seeking an artist who will incorporate both the machine and the archway and use them as the inspiration for a sculptural interpretation of the Bleachery, its people, the process for printing colorful patterns on cloth, and the skilled artisans who engraved these patterns on copper rollers. https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=6874
