Flagstar Strand Theatre announces donor wall design competition

The newly renovated Flagstar Strand Theatre in Pontiac, Michigan is accepting artist proposals to design  an original work of art for the theater that will also function as a  donor recognition installation.  The Flagstar Strand Theatre is a dynamic live performing arts venue with a history that dates back to 1921.  The restored theater proudly acknowledges the heritage of Pontiac's talented jazz artists and musical gatherings from the 1930's through the 60's and incorporates  repurposed materials from the  former Pontiac Central High School in its reconstruction.  With ardent admiration for the city of Pontiac's musical and creative roots, the Flagstar Strand Theatre carries on to create a new legacy of arts and entertainment.

The commissioned donor wall will be installed in the theater's main foyer, facing the front entrance and greeting visitors as they enter.  All mediums will be considered, including those requiring a light source.  The design must take into consideration the public's ability to walk within close range of the wall and should extend no more than one foot out from the wall.  The design must also include the capability to  add donor names as necessary after final installation.

The dimensions include one large central wall, 10.14 ft. wide by 10.92 ft. tall.  In addition, there are two side panels, each measuring 3.6 ft. wide by 10.92 ft. tall.  The project does not necessarily need to fill up all of the space.  The commissioned design will receive an award of $10,000 for the fabrication and installation of the final project. 

Please include as much detailed information as possible in the design proposal.  Drawings, sketches, or computer generated designs should include descriptions of colors, dimensions, and materials.  Files must be sent as JPEG or PDF files, no larger than 2MB.  Label each attached document with the artist's last name, first name and design title.  Please include a brief narrative description of the proposed design and information  about the artist(s): CV, website, web links or images of similar previous work.

All design proposals must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on November 1st.  For further information and to submit a proposal, please send an email to info@flagstarstrandtheatrepontiac.com
