The City of Blue Springs, Missouri established the Blue Springs Public Art Commission (PAC) in 2000 in order to enhance the artistic vitality of Blue Springs and to create a culturally rich community for citizens to live, work and shop.
This is our eleventh year of offering a temporary exhibition of art, which will be entitled “CAPRICIOUS”. This “Call to Artists” is seeking Artists wishing to be considered by the Selection Panel for this exhibit. The “Call to Artists” is open to all professional artists over the age of eighteen. Emerging and professional artists are encouraged to apply.
Four artists will be selected to provide a work of art for exterior display. The four artworks will be placed along a major thoroughfare with sidewalk access to the sculptures. The “Capricious” exhibit will open on April 1, 2018 and be displayed through March 1, 2019. In the past, one or more artworks have been purchased from each exhibition to remain in the City as permanent art.
