Participants will receive $5000 from PVCC as their honorarium. Furthermore, the chosen artists will also feature in the campus tour on September 2, 2021. They will meet the planning committee and have a task to design and create artwork every Friday through the fall semester.

To qualify for the project, participants shall enclose 10-20 images of their artworks. They shall also submit a resume, an artist statement, and a proposal, either in visual or written format. PVCC welcomes all tribe affiliations proven by documentation, and it will set preference for Akimei O’odham, Pima, and Hohokam tribe members.

The deadline for submitting the artwork is August 22, 2021. Chosen artists will receive the notification email no later than August 27, 2021. They shall not worry about their property as the campus won’t claim it unless selected for the project.
