Last year was the first year of this Light City festival here in Baltimore. There was about 18 light installations along Baltimore’s inner harbor. It was pretty cool. They had a stage with free concerts and stuff last year. Dan Deacon played. The one thing about last year is they didn’t have too many interactive light installations. So it was a bunch of stuff that looked cool, but that was about it. Anyways, the call for entries deadline was today. Myself, my friend from work and one of my cousins who just graduated with a degree in electrical engineering teamed up and put this proposal together. They are trying to have between 25-30 installations this year. Each installation can get between $5,000 – $75,000 for the design/ materials/ construction. My buddy Eric and I cranked out all of this from last Wednesday to Sunday. Probably about 20 hours of time each, I think it came out pretty cool, and succinct with the call for entries. Ours is estimated at $15,250 including 3,000 in design/construction fees. It was a PDF Submission, below is the exact pages from that. We’ll hear back in November. We had to do all sorts of artist resumes and past art samples as part of the submission, as long with fee spreadsheets.
Would love to hear your thoughts.
