Call to Artists/Request for Qualifications: Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River

The Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River (AWE) was formed to create a region-wide constituency of advocates for improved water quality, clean waterways and the preservation of the health of the Delaware River and its tributaries.

AWE seeks to commission interdisciplinary high quality original works of art for its network of 23 environmental centers. The art at each center will serve as a focal point to inspire people to explore, enjoy, and engage with the watershed while creating awareness and advocacy for the protection and restoration of the Delaware River Watershed. The outcome centers desire most is that the work highlights the connectivity of the watershed and the 23 centers involved.

Artists are welcome to apply as individuals or as a collaborative team. All 23 centers must receive a work. However, your proposed project may encompass either 1) works for all 23 centers or 2) works for a smaller subset of centers, in which case multiple projects (yours and others) will be selected so that, in the end, all 23 centers receive a work. In essence, the hope is that the art will act as a springboard for opportunities well into the future around which each center could design educational and interpretive programming. 

Request for Qualifications Deadline: December 15
