JH Public Art is seeking bold, ambitious, and unconventional ideas for the 2021 MoonShot 5×5 event, which will be held virtually on January 28, 2021. The deadline to submit a public art MoonShot 5×5 idea is 5pm on December 7th.
MoonShot concepts are catalysts that change the way people view a topic, or understand an issue through public art. Concepts should address any current issue facing our community, like social inequality, climate change, housing, or transportation but they should all inspire hope. Anyone with a bright idea is invited to present a MoonShot that illuminates current issues, sparks wonder and amazement, and inspires action. We are not looking for shovel-ready public art projects, but we are seeking bright ideas that push the boundaries of what is possible. JH Public Art will select the top 5-7 MoonShot ideas to be presented and will notify artists by mid-December.
Presenters will be asked to follow a quick-paced format: 5 slides and 5 minutes to present their unique public art pitch. They will also receive free presentation coaching from Nicole Garrett, a Certified Professional Coach, and owner of Present. Local MC Jeff Moran will host the event, streamed live at 7pm on Thursday, January 28th from the Center for the Arts stage. January 28th is a full moon (and National Kazoo Day). The live audience will also select this year’s Buzz Aldrin Award, which includes a $750 cash prize, for the idea that is the “crowd pleaser” and that best fits the “ethos” of Jackson Hole.
The MoonShot 5×5 is a core JH Public Art program now in its 5th year; co-presented by the Center for the Arts and sponsored by Friends of JH Public Art, Toran Accounting, and Wyoming Arts Council. The community event serves as a launchpad to rocket ideas out into the universe, where we hope they will land in reality. What’s your bright idea?!
How to submit: Please submit one PDF document that includes the following:
• Cover page with your contact information including cell phone, email, concept title
• 5 low-resolution images that are exactly or similar to what you would present
• No more than 500 words that describe your concept
• Confirm you will be able to present in person on January 28th, the event will be virtual
• Labeled with your name (do not label it 5×5)
Review Process: JHPA staff will select the top 5-7 ideas based on the following criteria:
• The concept is a catalyst to change the way people view a topic like water quality, endangered species, or climate change.
• The fabrication of said concept would demonstrate sustainable practices and techniques.
• The concept is bold, ambitious, awe-inspiring, and unconventional that push the boundaries of what is possible.
• Submissions will be reviewed in early December and you will be contacted by mid-December if you have been selected to present.
Any questions, please contact Alex Pope at firstname.lastname@example.org
