Mount Clemens “Play Everywhere” Call for Artists

Advancing Macomb, in partnership with the City of Mount Clemens, the Anton Art Center and the Macomb Family YMCA, has released a call for artists to design and manage the installation of four separate public outdoor paintings. This project will execute the vision of the KaBoom! "Play Everywhere" challenge to bring “play to unexpected but everyday spaces, making it easy and available for kids and families.”

The site locations will be at the Macomb Family YMCA, on the stair leading to the Clinton River near Northbound Gratiot and Cass Avenue, at the Anton Art Center and an alley off Macomb Place near Cherry Street. The artwork in the four locations should encourage engagement and participation in the spaces while highlighting Mount Clemens history and the city’s connection to the Clinton River. The project will also call for local volunteers and artists to work on the project installation in conjunction with the design artist. Installation of the project will occur in the spring of 2019. Applicants may submit a proposal for the entire project or for one individual location.

DEADLINE EXTENDED! The deadline for submission is January 22, 2018.
