Suwanee seeking artists for Art on a Limb program

SUWANEE - Suwanee is seeking artists who are willing to go out on a limb with their creativity.

The city is hosting a design competition for artwork to be featured in its annual Art on a Limb program. Samples of proposed artwork must be submitted by Feb. 16.

Art on a Limb is an initiative designed to celebrate and bring attention to the arts as well as the natural beauty of Suwanee's parks. Through the program, two pieces of original artwork are placed along the Suwanee Creek Greenway or at other Suwanee parks each day throughout the month of May. Those who find the art pieces get to keep the unique treasures.

Submitted artwork must be original, able to be placed outdoors (on a limb or on the ground), and be reproducible, according to a news release. Artwork may include paintings or drawings on a variety of materials as well as sculptures, glasswork, ceramics or any other suitable medium. At least 100 pieces of the selected artwork will need to be produced. The winning artist will receive compensation for the pieces.

Previous Art on a Limb pieces have included ceramic orbs, original paintings on small pieces of Suwanee's old water tower, nature-themed ceramic tiles and gourds painted to resemble birds.
