New Opportunities for Artists at Arts Fest

Posted By on Wed, Jan 16, 2013 at 10:05 AM

The Three Rivers Arts Festival has announced three new opportunities for artists to showcase their work. (One new opportunity per river, I guess.)

Local artists, lighting designers, students and architects are invited to submit proposals for “Riverlights,” a “temporary artistic lighting concept” to be showcased at Point State Park during the grand reopening of the fountain. The fountain’s been shut off for renovations since April 2009. The re-opening is scheduled for June 7, coinciding with the first day of the festival. For the lighting concept RFP and details about “Riverlights at the Point,” see www.pointstatepark.com. The deadline is Feb. 15.

The festival also includes a new Performing Arts Series for local and regional artists. Musicians, dancers, actors and literary and performance artists are all invited to submit work and proposals. (They are also encouraged — hint, hint — “to collaborate across disciplines for performances and to present original work as well as audience engagement and participatory activities in the Creativity Zone, Artist Market and Katz Plaza.”) To apply, see 3RiversArtsFest.org. The deadline is Feb. 15.

The fest has also issued a specific call for musicians, part of an effort “to further performance opportunities for local and regional musicians.” The deadline for this too is Feb. 15; again, see 3RiversArtsFestival.org.

All these opportunities are in addition to the festival’s traditional Artists Market, Juried Visual Art Exhibition and Emerging Artist Scholarship Program (the latter being for regional artists producing their first booth at an outdoor show).

The Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival is a production of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. This year’s festival runs June 7-16, as usual in and around Point State Park, Gateway Center and the Cultural District.
