Re: how does one create a proposal for public sculpture?
Thank you for sharing your experience Fritchie. If you wouldn't mind me asking, on those proposals you din't get, did you include sketches of some different ideas? I honeslty don't know if the committees even care if the sketches are rough draft showing only one angle or if they need to be illustration quility and show the idea for many angles. This is the kind of info that isn't forthcoming when I email the commission commitees as to what they want. I find it all frustrating. I am sure you are right in saying that it is unrealistic to hope that the first maquette can be used for the final enlargement. I haven't thought about collaboration with another artist on a proposal but I wouldn't have anything against trying it. I will check out the other thread as well.
Thank you for responding, every bit of advice helps!
