Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade encourages you to make a difference in our community by considering the following INVITATIONS and AGREEMENTS.

INVITATION TO ARTISANS

Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade invites regional metal artisans living within 80 miles of Frederick and willing to participate in our project to contact us year-round to discuss their interest and eventually be listed as possible candidates.

Once a sponsor has selected an artisan, after they have agreed on a design through our collaborative approach, and before 5pm on May 31, the artisan submits a Summary Proposal for internal review and validation by our Artistic Review Committee. Once the design is internally approved and before 5pm on August 31, the artisan submits the Full Proposal, which is presented to the City of Frederick’s Public Art Commission (artistic content) and its Parks & Recreation Commission (display in Carroll Creek) for final approvals.

Please contact us to discuss or for any questions!

INVITATION TO SPONSORS

Sponsors may be individuals, groups of individuals, organizations, or businesses interested in commissioning or co-commissioning regional artisans.

Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade invites interested sponsors to explore the possibility of making an impactful artistic difference in Frederick MD. Invitation to Sponsors – Information.

Please contact us to discuss your plans!

 

INVITATION TO PARTNERS

Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade is a not-for-profit project that welcomes in-kind and financial contributions to support its operations. It is 100% managed by volunteers and it invites individuals and organizations to explore how they can become partners in the success of this exciting community project. Invitation to Partners – Information.

Please contact us to discuss our partnership opportunities!

INVITATION TO HOST A KINETIC SCULPTURE

A kinetic sculpture will be displayed in Carroll Creek for a minimum of one year, which period can be extended for up to three years, at the sponsor/owner’s discretion.

Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade is always looking for publicly accessible host sites in Frederick where a kinetic sculpture can be displayed once it is removed from its main exhibit in Carroll Creek. It intends to perpetuate the artistic legacy of a sponsor/owner, who could decide to donate his/her sculpture rather than display it privately.

Please contact us to discuss a hosting opportunity!

AGREEMENTS

Sponsor-Artisan Agreement

Once a sponsor and an artisan agree on a specific design and on the financial consideration and after the design is approved by the City of Frederick, they sign Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade’s Sponsor-Artisan Agreement.

Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement

Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade has entered into a Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement with Friends of Carroll Creek Urban Park, a non-profit, volunteer-staffed community service organization, and a recognized 501(c)(3), whose mission is to support activities related to the Carroll Creek Urban Park in Frederick, Maryland.

This Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement provides tax deductibility to contributions made to the Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade Fund and used to pay vendors for services and products related to the project. However, a contribution made by a sponsor to pay an artisan will not be tax deductible as the sponsor will receive ownership of the kinetic sculpture.

Please send your contributions made to the Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade Fund to the attention of:

Mark Flanagan CPA
Treasurer
Friends of Carroll Creek Urban Park
1509 Homestead Ave
Frederick, Maryland 21702
