Rockford’s ‘Our City, Our Story’ is asking local artists to help beautify the city.
‘Our City, Our Story’ does video pieces on the Rockford community, highlighting everything from individuals who make a difference, to unique businesses.
The group is asking artists to use their creativity to come up with an idea for a public art installment for their “Our City, All Together” project.
“Gun laws, love, racism, sexism, loneliness, a whole bunch of different stuff,” said Our City, Our Story’s director and producer Pablo Korona. “But, it must be accessible and observable to the public, must be created in 2019, [and] must be an original project, not an iteration of an existing project.”
The winning art piece will be chosen by the public at an event on March 15th.
The artist who wins will receive $1,250 dollars.
