RAP is accepting proposals for temporary public art installations and creative projects in Santa Fe’s Railyard Park + Plaza. Artists may be eligible for stipends of up to $500, as well as assistance in obtaining liability insurance.
The RAP Committee encourages collaboration across disciplines (art, science, history, etc.) and welcomes thoughtful, challenging, playful and edifying art in the context of social and cultural expression and environmental sustainability. Proposed projects must be able to physically withstand outdoor public display, and engage the community by responding to the natural and social landscape of the Railyard Park + Plaza.
Considerations for selection include:
- Overall artistic merit
- Context and familiarity with the proposed site
- Practical viability
- Potential for community engagement and cultural/educational enrichment
Artists should select an eligible area of the park’s open space appropriate to their projects and describe the project in detail. Photos or renderings of the proposed projects may be uploaded along with the application. Click HERE for the link to map of Railyard Art Locations.
The RAP Committee, made up of community members and Park + Plaza stakeholders, will select and schedule the temporary exhibitions. Depending on the complexity of the proposal, the Committee and/or City may request a formal, in-person presentation.
