In 2017 Dartmoor National Park is undertaking a public arts initiative, the model will be a 3 foot tall Moor Otter – primed and ready to paint. They are now calling for artists, craft makers, designers etc. to submit a design submission for one of the Moor Otters.
Moor Otters are a series of 100 unique pieces of art which will be displayed in public accessible areas in and around the National Park and gateway towns in 2017, after which they will be auctioned off to raise valuable funds to enable the park to continue conserving the landscape for current and future generations to enjoy.
To celebrate the incredible diversity of habitats and wildlife and to raise vital funds to help conserve landscapes and create incredible experiences for all visitors, they are creating a unique public arts initiative and are now inviting you to become involved.
The Moor Otters public arts initiative, which is the first of its kind to be held in and around a National Park, will allow you to brand, promote and benefit from a year long programme during which Moor Otter sculptures will be hand painted or decorated by a range of artists and then adorn our public spaces in and around Dartmoor National Park and its gateway towns.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 11th November 2016. For further information and to download the guidelines and apply, please visit the web link below.
