RAIN AWAKENS – NEW WEST PUBLIC LIBRARY – RAIN PIERRE (SɬəMƏXw)
Public Art Project Outline 2023
It is time to have your part in this amazing project in the library community! We are hosting an art competition for a collaborative public art project in the library with Rain Pierre. It is time to start your art career!
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
All of those willing to participate are allowed to enter this competition. Each participant will draw on a standard sheet of paper (8.5”x11”)on what they would like to see on the mural. This project will be our own way of working together. Participants are encouraged to draw something that is relative to what the community means to them. You can see some of Rain’s artwork on his website (www.rainawakens.com) for some inspiration.
WHAT SHOULD I DRAW?
Draw what the community means to you (LGBTQ2S+, reconciliation, equity, environmental protection, recovery, etc.). You could draw an animal or plant that might be significant to Coast Salish people or the surrounding territory. You could draw what you have learned reflecting on the heart of reconciliation. It is up to you if you want to color it, but keep in mind the colors might change in translation to the final art piece to ensure cohesion of all design pieces.
WHAT IF I AM NOT AN ARTIST?
Do not worry, we also accept words or phrases that you think represent the community. The Library will collect all submissions, and forward them to Rain who will select the winner(s). The winners’ artwork will be integrated with Rain’s art work, creating a collaborative art projectwith the library community, as well as creating YOUR legacy and beginning your art portfolio.Best of luck!
JUNE 28, 2023 AT 3:00PM. Submissions can be accepted at either NWPL branch, or electronically at: email@example.com
Please include your name, contact information, and one page of art only.
