An International Site-Specific Art Competition
The Maine Center for Creativity's Art All Around™ project announces an open call for a juried design competition for a major public art work using Portland, Maine's Sprague Energy Corporation 16 of more than 35 above ground storage tanks as a canvas. The competition's cash prizes total $70,000.00. From land, sea and air, the Sprague "tank farm" is a prominent feature on the Portland Harbor. It is seen by nearly everyone who passes through Portland on travels, and is a familiar sight for those who live here. Viewers see the tank farm from many vantage points and from various speeds. There is no entry fee for the competition.
