Kinetic Art Exhibition Seeks Entries



Kinetic artists seek to propel the mind to wonder and to encourage viewers to appreciate the joy in motion and learn about other ways it can benefit society. Kinetic art is created by artists who push the boundaries of traditional, static art forms to introduce visual experiences that will engage the audience and profoundly change the course of modern art.

The City of Boynton Beach Arts Commission and the Kinetic Symposium Exhibit Committee invites you to participate in the February 3 – 5, 2017, International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium’s outdoor exhibit.  All types of outdoor kinetic art forms are encouraged to be submitted. The artwork should endure the Florida outdoor environment for the year-long display. The artists may consider more than one artwork site or create a site-specific kinetic artwork installation. Avenue sites can accommodate artwork up to 20 x 6 x 10 (large pad) and 10 x 4 x 6 (small pad). All cement pads are 6 foot square. Some are flush to the pavement, others elevated in landscaped areas. There is also the opportunity for kinetic artwork to be installed in large signature trees along East Ocean Avenue. 

Each selected artist will receive $1,000.00 per artwork selected to cover delivery and installation of the artwork. You, the artist, will be responsible for the delivery, installation and loan of the artwork. If you cannot install the artwork the City can assist with this service as part of the stipend. The City provides property insurance for the artwork on display. All artwork is promoted for sale with a 30% contribution to the Art in Public Places program.

Please submit the following both digitally (still and video) and in printed formats. Include your contact information (name, address, phone, cell, email and web site); past work listing exhibits and public art commissions including information about the artwork (1 page maximum); artist bio (500 word maximum), artwork title; brief artwork meaning; material; retail price; dimensions (including orbital air space and dimensions for orbiting components and ground) and weight, including base dimensions and methods for installation along with a detailed base diagram.
