The Eastern State Penitentiary Historical Site is seeking proposals for site-specific art installations during the 2012 season. "Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world's first true 'penitentiary,' a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of convicts." Proposals aren't due until June 16, 2011
, but artists are encouraged to attend an orientation first. Orientations begin January 28. More details are available on the penitentiary website
You can find images of Laurie Herrick's notes, photographs of her work, and weaving drafts to use in preparation of your proposal here
