Hi, Geoffrey Nicastro here:

 

I will be conducting a discussion group at this years' NCECA conference regarding "The Peace Heard Project"

 

I am looking to involve as many schools and artists as possible.

All figure artists using any permenant medium should know that they can be a part of this project,

 

The finished product “The Peace Heard Project” will be a massive collaborative sculpture over a five-acre site installed in a large field where a flyover will reveal an image of a peace dove. The paths around it will be lighted to make the image of the dove visible at night.  The permanent site will grow over time, with the goal of matching the number of soldiers found in Xi’an, eight thousand or more. As artists submit pieces, paths will add to the size of the aerial dove image. 

 

Can you commit to building a sculpture for this project?

Please print the document behind this link http://www.galleryfo...ptionNCECA2.pdf

or read more @  www.PeaceHeard.org

 

This project becomes real as we create it.

Looking forward to meeting some of you at NCECA this year, and hearing about your inductees for The Peace Heard Project.

Is it okay to pass this information on to others via email and Facebook?

Quick questions regarding the oroject, "The sculpture needs to be the scale of the person it represents whether it is abstract or representational.". If I understand that to mean "life-size", is there an expectation that these will be full-body representations (i.e. not just a bust)?

Also, I did not see a timeline for the project. Can you estimate things like proposal due dates, expectations on local display install/duration, anticipated installation date at final destination?

 

Finally, who will bear the expense of shipping to the final installation site?

 

Thanks,
Paul

Yes Diane please share as much as possible.

To Paul, yes the sculpture needs to be life size full body. The timeline for the project is open. I expect this to be a 10-15 year project or even a lifetime project. I am estimating needing 10-40 sculptures before I can get the land committed, so the temp location might be a longer commitment unless we get a good number or artists committed quickly. The website will be updated as soon as the artists submit their information. Shipping costs will be determined by the level of funding we get.
