Jackson Hole Public Art (JHPA) is hosting PARK(ing) Day on Friday, September 20, 2019. PARK(ing) Day occurs annually across the world and this will be the fourth year of this event in Jackson Hole. Local creatives install unique parklettes that will occupy parking spaces in downtown Jackson for one day only. PARKing Day demonstrates how we can transform a mundane parking spot into a place of possibility. On PARKing Day maps that showcase the location of each installation are shared so pedestrians can enjoy a self-guided art walk in downtown Jackson.

Applications can be downloaded here: 2019 JHPA_PARK(ing) Day application

We will review your concepts as they come in and award PARKing spots in a first come, first served basis. Applications are due no later than July 31st, 5:00 pm.

Applications can be submitted to Alex Pope, Project Manager: alex@jhpublicart.org

Call for Creative Placemaking on Center Street

JH Public Art is calling all designers and artists to send a “napkin sketch” of your creative placemaking ideas for Center Street and the immediate surroundings.

Multiple, large-scale construction projects are taking place in and around Center Street in the spring of 2020. We are seeking ideas to help mitigate the negative impacts of construction, add vibrancy to the downtown, help pedestrians navigate the construction zones, improve walkways and crosswalks, connect to parking facilities and public transportation, and engage the public in fun and innovative ways.

From your “napkin” sketches, five artists or design teams will be paid a stipend of $500 to expand your sketch into a concept to display as an 18 x 24-inch poster during PARKing Day.

Timeline
Deadline for napkin sketches is August 9th at 5 pm.
The selected teams will be notified the following week.
Posters are due on September 18th.

Please submit concepts to alex@jhpublicart.org
