Looking to inject the annual Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival (Sept. 20-21, 2014) with an interactive flavor, organizers of the landmark event are seeking four to six artists to create art installations and/or demonstrations in the beautiful creekside setting in the heart of Mill Valley’s redwood-forested Old Mill Park.
Here are the details:

  • Accepted artists will recieve a 12’ X 16’ space with a value equivalent to a $600 booth fee.
  • Special preference will be given for use of organic material or use of the natural environment in a unique way.
  • Work that is interactive or demonstrates the artistic process is encouraged.
  • On-site construction can begin Wedsday, Sept. 17 and must be completed by Friday evening Sept. 19 unless it is an ongoing demonstration project. Artist must be present during entire show, Sat.-Sun. Sept. 20-21, 10-5 daily.
  • Installation must be completely deconstructed and removed from site by dark on Monday Sept. 22.
  • Artist may present information about their work and take commissions for future projects, but may not sell anything at the show. 
  • The Installation must be free-standing and the site cannot be altered in any way (no digging, cutting of vegetation, moving rocks, etc.)
  • A $200.00 prize will be awarded to the best installation or demonstration.

Interested artists should send by June 15 a one-page description of the proposed installation or demonstration together with a sketch of the basic design and up to 4 images of related art projects they have previously completed.
