Artist Submission: Art for Impact - Screw City Steel
ART FOR IMPACT is a community impact initiative of the Rockford Area Arts Council; through our dynamic partnerships and regional talent pool, the Arts Council’s strategic vision of public art in every neighborhood will come to fruition.
ART FOR IMPACT objectives
• Bolster neighborhood pride
• Create a sense of place, community, and belonging
• Develop public art that draws the attention of residents + visitors
• Reflect the values and priorities of the Rockford Region—diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging
This project is in its first year of development; it will be an annual community impact initiative with regional, professional artists submitting proposals to paint industrial steel doors in alignment with a predetermined theme; the 2022 theme is YOU BELONG HERE. Screw City Steel will host six regional artists' work on an annual basis.
The Arts Council is currently taking submissions for its first installment of Screw City Steel: YOU BELONG HERE, 2022. Installation of work will take place from July 5-10, 2022, in Davis Park.
