Call to Artist

Art Towers

Simon Rodia took 33 years to build his towers in Watts, Gustave Eiffel
built a famous tower in France and Antoni Gaudi created 18 towers as
part of the temple of th Sagrada Familia in Spain. These towers soar
above us, but also inspire us

WATCH ART HAPPEN invites teams of artist to be inspired by these
structures and take the opportunity to create their own art towers. More
than one million visitors will view the process as part of the exhibition
The Making of Art at the Millard Sheets Center for the Arts
at Fairplex during the 2009 L.A. County Fair, Sept. 5 through Oct. 4 Teams
will receive a commission of $3,000 for their Art Towers.

This is a new (last year) event and lots of fun for the participants. Artist teams will create their artwork in full view of the public over the course of four weeks. It’s an opportunity for a one-of-a-kind collaboration with your team mates and the members of the other teams. There will be lots of chances to answer questions and reveal the process of art-making to an awed audience. It’s also possible to promote yourself, sell your work and build your contacts list.
And while you’re here you can explore the LA County Fair: visit Hussong’s Cantina, shop hundreds of unique vendors, watch horse racing and taste the latest deep-fried treat!
The deadline of July 1st is fast approaching, so send your application and make plans to spend your summer vacation at the Fair!
