Calling Artists for Art Putt at First Night Raleigh 2017

First Night Raleigh Art Putt




WHAT: Art Putt will be an interactive art installation featuring a miniature golf course of nine artist-designed mini-golf holes.

WHEN: December 30-December 31, 2016

WHERE: TBD outdoor location (weather permitting) in Downtown Raleigh.

Any Artist or Group of Artists is invited to submit a proposal for one of the nine holes. Think of this as a public art exhibit where folks can interact with your artwork while playing a fun game at the same time! Each selected artist will be featured on the First Night Raleigh website and mobile app in addition to their hole being on display at Art Putt.

First Night Raleigh has commissioned set designer Greg Osbeck to construct the actual structure of the individual holes and to make the course cohesive. Artists may select from these base layouts, which are listed at the end of this document, when submitting their designs.
