SEEKING ARTIST SUBMISSIONS FOR THE MILWAUKEE BOAT PARADE
Milwaukee Riverkeeper is seeking artist submissions to design and build parade floats for the 2018 Milwaukee Boat Parade. The Milwaukee Boat Parade coincides with Harborfest, September 8, 2018.
The art installation floats are a unique and special feature of the parade with the goal of creating something similar to the ever-popular Bosch Parade in Holland. Milwaukee Riverkeeper will procure pontoon boats for the art boats and artists will receive $500-$1000 for time and materials to create the floating installations. This year’s parade theme is “Where The Waters Meet”. Milwaukee Riverkeepers anticipate funding 6 art boats.
All applications must be submitted by June 15, 2018. Artists will be notified by early July. Art boat applications and photos of last year’s event may be found on Milwaukee Riverkeeper website, www.milwaukeeriverkeeper.org/m
