The Oregon Arts Commission
is currently seeking submissions for public work.
The first opportunity is for on-site art for the new building project at the University of Oregon's College of Education. Highlighted themes include "Intervention, The Individual, Hope, Discovery and Diversity."
The second opportunity is for on-site artwork for the Oregon State Data Center in Salem. Successful work will engage the viewer (and especially the employees), and compliment the surrounding architecture.
Both submission deadlines are on February 29
. You can learn more about the projects here
Carl Morris, "In the Stillness of Time"
On an unrelated note: Guest curators Prudence Roberts and Silas Cook (assistant director of Reed's Cooley Gallery) will be speaking tomorrow at Marylhurst University's Art Gym. Roberts will be discussing Carl Morris: Figure, Word & Light
, an exploration of a body of Morris' painting made partly in response to WWII. Cook will address Leonard Ruder: Evidence of a Life Work
, a retrospective of Ruder's 50+ year career, moving from landscape into abstraction through continuous formal experimentation.
The exhibitions run through February 13. There will be a special musical performance from 12:30 - 1:15 on closing day. The music was composed in response to the paintings by John Paul, chair of the Marylhurst University Music Department, and others.
