So often the physical appearance of a work of art doesn’t fully convey the artist process, mediums, original vision or intent. We invite any work of art using any process where something about the final product isn’t ‘what it seems’. We welcome works where brushstroke, line and color are used to convey a vision, or works where scale, size or subject are distorted in some way. Write a few sentences to display alongside your work(s) so viewers understand your idea a little better.

Your work does not need to be abstract however, abstract works lend themselves well to this theme. Abstract art uses the concepts of form, color, motion, and line – as opposed to concrete shape – to create elements of feeling, emotion, pattern, expression, and vision. These elements are placed intentionally, and maintain a sense of balance and continuity throughout the piece, as determined by the artist. Abstract art holds a special place in the world of creativity, because it invites the viewer to translate and imagine.

MOA 2019 Design and Build Competition

  • The Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA) announces the Design and Build Competition, a new design competition open to any US based undergraduate or graduate student team who is enrolled in a creative field of study
  • MOA is accepting submissions from teams of students through May 31, 2019
db
The competition is a new component under MOA’s Design and Build program and solicits design proposals from student teams across the nation in response to a provided theme and challenge. The goal of the competition is to cultivate potential from emerging artists, architecture and design students and to allow them the space to conceptualize inventive ideas within a set of boundaries.

The challenge for the 2019 competition is to design a pop-up makerspace, in which the public can come together and create. The makerspace should be designed through a blend of architecture and sculpture / installation and include a narrative about the type of programming that can occur within the space. Winning entries will be selected through a panel comprised of MOA Board of Trustees, Executive Staff and a professional in the field, guest-panelist.

The top three proposals will win cash prizes totaling to $9,500 and be featured on an upcoming Design and Build concepts and designs website. While the competition generally stays in the conceptual and digital realm, MOA, at its discretion, may elect to provide additional funds to any winning entry to actualize the concept into a physical installation, performance or product.

“Since 1991, MOA’s Design and Build program has provided thousands of students with an opportunity to express their creativity in collaborative art, architecture and design projects,” says MOA President & Executive Director, Cynthia Madden Leitner. “We are elated to announce the Design and Build Competition as the latest component of Design and Build and to bring the program to a national level.”

As Design and Build has always emphasized collaboration, teams of three to six students are eligible to submit their collaborative design proposal. Competition details are available on the Design and Build Competition website at http://www.moaonline.org/design-and-build-competition. Prospective student teams can download a competition brief document on the website that outlines the full details and scope of the proposal submission process.
