Call for Entries – Hanging Gardens & Woven Fences & Trashy Sculpture
The “Hanging Gardens & Woven Fences & Trashy Sculpture” project will once again be a highlight of the Grand Avenue Festival, Oct. 20th from 10am – 8 pm, (After Hours from 8 – 10 pm). There is no entry fee & individuals or organizations will be paired with specific sites. Your masterpiece must be made primarily out of trash or recycled materials; however, a $35 stipend is available from Kooky Krafts Shop for participating youth groups (high school age or younger) for additional supplies such as paint, glue glitter, etc. Stipends will be awarded on project completion. Participants are responsible for set up & break down (in some cases projects may be able to remain for a few weeks with property permission ) & projects must be installed by 10 am the day of the Festival. Visitors will receive a map so they can locate each project.
Hanging Gardens: Projects can consist of actual living garden components or make-believe plants, fantastical vines, whimsical flowers and other assemblages. Your fantastic gardenesque creations will be hung from branches or wrapped around tree trunks in a non-invasive fashion (i.e. without damage to trees or existing landscaping). Use of trash or recycled materials as the core element of your project is strongly encouraged.
Woven Fences: This project can be something actually woven through a fence, attached along the top of a fence, or created in advance and attached to an existing chain link, wrought iron, concrete block or other fence structure surface. Again, recycled materials are encouraged.
Trashy Sculpture: This year the trashy sculpture entries will be exhibited outside, on the day of the event only, so temporariness and expendability are key. Reduce, reuse & recycle!
