A $3,000 grant is now available to a Hudson Valley artist or community group for an artistic outdoor installation near a 1,000 panel Community Solar Array (CSA) at the 55-acre Seligmann Center at the Orange County Citizens Foundation in Sugar Loaf NY. The Orange County Arts Council (OCAC) and the Seligmann Center are partnering with SunCommon, the solar company behind the CSA, for this Call to Artists.
This piece will be placed outside the pollinator landscaping around the fencing of the array, near the corner of Kings Hwy. and Bellvale Rd. It will join the seven other outdoor sculptures currently at the Seligmann Center, where visitors enjoy the natural landscape, walking paths and pollinator plantings. Artists and community groups are encouraged to propose pieces made through creative practices that engage with the local community and/or sustainable materials.
The sculpture should stand as an engaging enhancement to the partners’ dedication to environmentalism and their connection to the community through the arts. For more information, visit occitizensfoundation.org/initiatives/suncommon-grant/.
