Jackson Hole Fine Art Fair Seeks Public Participation Art Work For Front Entrance
Design the front entrance of the inaugural Jackson Hole Fine Art Fair (JHFAF), Sept 12th-15th and create a shocking and awe-inspiring experience as fairgoers enter the Snow King Event Center with your interactive work of art!
The JHFAF will review and collaborate on submitted proposals. Then, the selected artist will take ownership of execution to create a unique, one-of-a-kind walk-through welcome as audiences enter the fair. Artists will be encouraged to think outside the box and re-invent the facade of the fair, a 28 ft wide X 20 ft high space, to immediately engross fairgoers in art as they arrive through your fresh and memorable art work.
The proposed art should be immersive and interactive. One idea is a painting done on ropes that fairgoers could walk through. Another is perhaps a painted billboard with cut holes that people navigate to enter and exit. Artist may work in various mediums, including audio. All ideas are welcome – the more creative, the better! Proposed works must be safe and practical to execute.

The Center for the Arts and JH Public Art would love to congratulate Haley Badenhop for being selected to paint the first ever “Public Piano” for downtown Jackson Hole that will be located outside at the Center for the Arts.

We look forward to seeing what Haley designs and will keep you updated through social media as she gets started!
