Artist?s RFP Chalk Drawings- Connect the Dots Arts Festival, Sunday, September 20, 2009, 11 AM ? 5 PM
A series of dots designed by artists, who will draw them in water-soluble chalk
on the sidewalks and roadways of Snug Harbor, will guide visitors around the site.
People who wish to create dots will work within a circle 15? in diameter in chalk provided.
Each dot site will be marked with a flag,
and participants will wear buttons that say Ask me about my dot!
Works completed by 2 PM will be eligible for first, second, and
third place cash prizes of $25, $50, and $100 respectively.
The dots will be removed at the end of the day.
To participate, an artist must submit a rough sketch of the proposed dot
and arrive at the festival on the morning of the event to create it.
