Brief Description

The Regional Arts & Culture Council is seeking an artist/artist team living in Oregon or Washington to design, fabricate and install permanent exterior artwork in Errol Heights Park.

The goals for public art at the park are: (1) to strengthen the bond between people and the living earth through art; (2) respond to the ecology, biology and natural processes found in the park; (3) provide experiences for park visitors that focus on the aesthetic qualities of the park. Use of materials with proven longevity in the outdoor environment is encouraged. The four seasons have dramatic visual impact on the park and the art could play a role in showcasing the changing seasons.
