Art4Trails seeks proposals for public art installations to be placed along Rochester’s downtown bike trails. Artists over age 18 can submit proposals (individually or collectively) between now and Jan. 13, 2020. Artists under age 18 can have a teacher or parent sponsor the proposal.

Four proposals will be selected. The winning artists will be awarded $2500 per site, $1,250 upon selection and $1,250 after installation. The art will be installed between June 1 and 19, 2020, at the following locations: Silver Lake Park by the old fire station, Mayo East Park by the playground, Slatterly Park by the picnic shelter and on a river landing near the waterfall sculpture at the end of Third St. SE.

Applications, which include an artist statement, project proposal, and site preferences, will be submitted online via this link.
