WSW August

Here is another something I just saw online. I have some ideas about it. Thoughts?
au·gust art festival is envisioned as a visual arts extravaganza with presentations by video artists, sculptors, performance artists, and/or installation artists. Throughout the month of August, artists will be presenting their work along the WVLT Rail Trail from WSW to the trestle, on Main Street, and/or in town parks. au·gust art festival is designed to present exciting contemporary work and to highlight the economic impact artists have in our community. Throughout the festival, there will be opportunities for conversation and dialog about the work.
All installations are temporary and must withstand natural elements for the period of the festival. The artwork must not, in any way, interfere with the daily use of the Rail Trail.
The festival will take place August 728.
Installation Dates: August 1–7, 2015
De-installation Dates: August 28–September 4, 2015
While WSW will be able to provide some assistance, artists will be responsible for installing and de-installing their work.
Selected artists will receive $500 – $750 honorarium. Additional funding will be available for artists interested in proposing a project-specific interaction with the community during the festival (i.e. workshop, performance, etc.).
Proposal Deadline: March 2, 2015
