Calling all artists! The Homer Foundation is requesting proposals from artists for a larger-than-life sized bronze salmon sculpture, The Giving Salmon. The Giving Salmon will be located on the grounds of the new Boat House Pavilion, a marine-inspired covered pavilion which will stand where the former Harbor Master’s office was located on the Homer Spit.
Interested artists should apply online. Deadline to apply is November 15, 2016 with a www.callforentry.org/login.php
The sculpture will commemorate the Foundation’s 25th Anniversary and will be a permanent gift to the community, a beautiful piece of public art that will help increase the Foundation’s visibility, capture donations from visitors, and build awareness of the vibrant non-profit community that helps Homer flourish as a world-class location for both living and visiting. All donations deposited into The Giving Salmon will be distributed through the Foundation’s year-round grants program.
Donors wishing to support the creation of The Giving Salmon will be recognized on a brass plaque adjacent to the sculpture. For more information regarding this opportunity call the Homer Foundation, 907-235-0541.
