Budget: $30,000 to re-curate a collection of portable artworks located in public buildings in Eugene, Salem, Portland and Pendleton.

DAS seeks to re-curate up to 225 portable artworks located in 11 DAS-owned state buildings. Many of the artworks have been in the same location for many years or are currently in storage. The goal of the curatorial project is to refresh the artwork and provide contemporary interpretation so that the art will benefit the public and building users for many years to come.

Deadline to submit materials: 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 31, 2022
