2017 Benches on the Avenue: ‘The Power of Music’
Are you an artist looking for an opportunity to show off your talents and challenge your creativity?
The Village of Tinley Park is seeking amateur and/or professional artists, both in groups and as individuals, who are interested in participating in the annual Benches on the Avenue public art project.
Artists will be selected based on their portrayal of the 2017 theme, “The Power of Music.” The Village is looking for creative, colorful, three-dimensional designs that are child- and family friendly and that depict how music can affect mood, inspire action or in general evoke powerful emotions in listeners. Portrayals should be vibrant, colorful and include some degree of 3-D art. Artists are asked to submit two unique designs based on the theme.
Benches on the Avenue, which in 2017 will celebrate its 14th year, is an award-winning public art program that features nearly two dozen benches along downtown Oak Park Avenue showcasing the unique and colorful designs of professional and amateur artists from the area.
Artwork is based on a different theme each year, and benches are on display from mid-May through Sept. 30. Each bench will be sponsored by a local business or individual who will take possession of it after the program has ended. Click on the below link to download a submission form.
Happy April from Cavallini’s!
