Arts Across the Prairie is a national call to established artists who can create large-scale artwork, based on the cultural heritage and land of North Central North Dakota, as determined by community stakeholders. The group has named the project Living Waters, Painted Skies.
Arts Across the Prairie will create eight large-scale art installations – one in each geographic
region in the state – that reflect the unique history, landscape, and cultural heritage as defined by stakeholder groups in these regions. All eight artworks will be placed in decidedly rural locations. The art installations should reference and represent the natural setting, as well as the cultural and economic history of the region.
The deadline for initial submissions is Friday, December 1, 2023. Three finalists will be asked to submit complete project proposals. The artistic fee is $55,000, part of a $150,000 budget.
