APP Board call for artists a success

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Three time’s a charm, or so the old saying goes. But in the case of the Art in Public Places Board’s call for artists, twice might just do the trick.

The board put out a call for artists last fall in the hope of attracting folks that would be interested in having their work etched on the bus shelters that had been constructed. The call for artists, however, was not as successful as the board had hoped because only two proposals were received.

Despite the disappointing turnout, the board still wanted to have some art etched onto the shelters, so another call for artists was put out in March.

This time, the APP board received 8-10 proposals, said Board Liaison Stephani Johnson.

“We had several submittals from Dobbins Studios in Santa Fe,” Johnson said. “They did the etching on the glass at the gallery in the library.”

In addition to the proposals from Dobbins, the board also received proposals from Carol Meine, an artist who works at the library. Johnson said that the submissions from Meine were nature themed.

The board also received two proposals from Richard Wasilewski, Meine’s husband, who is also an artist.

Johnson said Mel Pruitt was another artist who submitted a proposal.
