Carbon County Museum seeks photograph submissions of a local landscape, preferably in Carbon County. Photos taken in the neighboring region and resembling the local landscape of Carbon County will be considered as well.
One image will be chosen, printed, and used as a high-quality, large-scale wall mural; it will be installed in the Discovery Zone, a new children’s room and exhibit space at the museum.
Deadline: October 29, 2012 (Artists will be notified by November 6, 2012).
The selected image will be a high desert/prairie scene with no signs of modern life, man-made development, or people.
The image must be available as a high resolution digital file (minimum 6000 x 8400 pixels or 6 megapixels) or as a high quality digital print at least 5 x 7 inches large.
This is a free opportunity open to all artists. Artists currently attending high school or college are also encouraged to submit. Wyoming artists with ties to Carbon County are preferred.
How to apply:
Email up to 3 images (total size of all attachments no more than 10 MB, please—submissions need not be high-res) to Stacy Fevinger at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Include a brief description of where each photo was taken, and your city and state of residence. If you do not live in Wyoming, you may include a brief description of any relationship you have to the state and/or Carbon County.
The artist chosen will receive a $150 honorarium and acknowledgement on relevant exhibit labels. They will be recognized at an opening reception held for the new exhibit space, and promoted via the museum’s usual channels, including radio, newspaper, web, and social media. The image chosen will be a long-term (minimum 1-year) installation in the museum.
The chosen image will be considered a donation to the museum’s permanent collection and retained subject to the museum’s Collections Policy (available on request). If the image is submitted as a print, that copy will remain property of Carbon County Museum. Carbon County Museum will have multiple use, non-exclusive rights to the image and may alter the image as it sees fit to meet the needs of exhibit installation and for promotional purposes.
