The Downtown Association of Fairbanks and Project Fairbanks are proud to announce a new public art project titled Art in the Heart: Paint the Pipes with a completion date of September 24th, 2012. The Downtown Association recently committed to leading one public art project each year upon taking note of overwhelming interest in and support for new public art in downtown Fairbanks.
Art in the Heart: Paint the Pipes brings new sponsorship opportunities to highlight your business as an important advocate for downtown revitalization and local arts. This project addresses the nondescript vent pipes which vent the utilidor and stand adjacent to the streets and sidewalks of downtown. Art in the Heart: Paint the Pipes will pay artists to paint these pipes in the design and colors of their choice, subject to approval by a selection committee. (Submit Designs Here!) Only the highest quality designs from artists who can demonstrate successful completion of past projects will be chosen for Paint the Pipes. Artists will be paid a $300 stipend with all supplies provided. Donations will help cover these expenses, as well as advertising and promotions.
As a sponsor, the primary benefit to your business is prominent placement of your name and logo directly onto a painted pipe. This is a one-of-a-kind promotional opportunity that will literally put your brand directly in the line of vision of downtown visitors, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists. Please see the sponsorship brochure for details on how to claim a full pipe, reserve half of a pipe, or contribute as a small business or arts organization.
This project has already sparked public interest and the buzz is just catching on. Pipe sponsorships are limited in quantity and offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
