So, art isn't exactly the hottest commodity these days, eh?
Well, what have you considered changing in your repetoire? Are you willing to adjust your designs or price points? Are you interested in trying a new material or switching to a different medium?
And, what if I asked you to think BIG?
Public art isn't something to turn your nose up at. Public art commissions mean big dollars, long term projects, and, many times, an opportunity to work with a team of people who are experts in installation, lighting, landscaping, or even casting. Public art commissions extend budgets averaging between $10,000 and $100,000. Of course these opportunities don't come without hurdles. But, garnering a public art commission could lead to a stable new project on your horizon, isn't it worth at least a second glance?
As I write this, the following states have several lucrative public art opportunities available:
Florida :: Kentucky :: Oklahoma :: Missouri
You can also place your bio and information on file at one of many state, city, and county public art commission offices, like these:
Arizona :: Florida
This is, of course a sampling of opportunities, but doesn't it seem possible that if you think BIGGER and apply your creative energies to an 'out of the box' idea, it might just pay off by reviving your bank account and energizing your other work?
