Call for proposals: Art at the Wellesley College Botanical Gardens and Greenhouse July 23, 2010

Posted by claralieu in sculpture.

The Jewett Art Gallery at Wellesley College invites artist proposals for outdoor sculpture to be temporarily installed at the Wellesley College Botanical Gardens and Greenhouse.  Proposals must be created as a specific response to the space and environment of the Botanical Gardens and Greenhouse.  Works using materials harvested from the botanical gardens will also be considered.  A visit to the botanical gardens and greenhouse prior to submitting a proposal is strongly suggested.  Admission is free, and the gardens and greenhouse are open daily throughout the year, 8:00am-4:00pm.  The gallery will cover publicity and a small stipend for an artist talk; all other exhibition costs will be the responsibility of the artist. Projects which require major construction will not be considered.

The Alexandra Botanic Garden has specimen trees and shrubs from around the world in a picturesque landscape. A tiny brook winds through the garden from a waterfall to Paramecium Pond. The Margaret C. Ferguson Greenhouses feature plant life from the deserts of Mexico and Africa to the rainforests of Malaysia and Brazil. Seasonal displays combine with permanent collections to present an ever-changing immersion in the wonderful world of plants.
