Howl for UWG Public Art Project Deadline is Dec. 2

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

The submission deadline for Howl for UWG is Friday, Dec. 2.

Howl for UWG is a public art project that uses the wolf as a metaphor for community. It seeks to connect art, academics and athletics. Howl is patterned after Cows on Parade, an international public art project of painted cows that has raised millions of dollars for charity.

The submission deadline for Howl for UWG is Friday, Dec. 2. Howl is open to all artists, designers, schools and community groups. There is no limit to the number of submissions a person or group can enter. Please visit the artists link at www.howlforuwg.com for more information and to download the artist application package.

If selected, the work will be fully credited and displayed at appropriate, high visibility locations throughout the UWG campus and the surrounding community.

Selected artists will receive a $350 honorarium to assist in the cost of art supplies and materials. Selected artists will agree to complete both a life-size wolf and a smaller tabletop replica. Depending on the sponsorship level, selected wolves will be auctioned during the spring of 2013. Each sculpture will include a plaque bearing the name of the artist, the sponsor and the title of the wolf.  In addition, selected artists will have their information, along with a photograph of their finished wolf, posted on the Howl for UWG website.

Clint Samples, associate professor of art, and the Office of Development and Alumni Relations are spearheading the effort. For more information contact Samples at 678-839-4949 or csamples@westga.edu.
