Brief Description

The Art in Public Places Program of New Mexico Arts and the Local Selection Committee (LSC) for the Center of Recreational Excellence (CORE) in Hobbs, New Mexico seek an artist or artist team to create a site-specific commission project to be situated outside the main entrance of the recreational facility. Kinetic and light responsive projects are encouraged, especially those responding to the use of the recreational center, as well as its larger function in the City of Hobbs, and Lea County as a whole. The LSC is interested in commissioning a work that speaks to ideas of energy, movement, transformation, and community. The LSC would like the artist/artist team to consider the abundant energy sources that sustain the Lea County area. The artist/artist team should consider the viewer experiencing the artwork from inside the CORE facility as well as outside and draw people in from multiple vantage points.
