In preparation for the 2013 Sculpt EVV outdoor sculpture exhibition, residents of Evansville’s Goosetown and other 4th Ward neighborhoods are invited to participate in the Great Street Makeover, a project funded by the University of Southern Indiana, Vectren Foundation, HR Solutions, Inc., and the City of Evansville.
Art apprentices will earn minimum wage while they work with USI students to create small sculptures to decorate Gooestown streetscapes in preparation for the approximately 3,000 visitors anticipated at the opening of Sculpt EVV on June 15. The creative activities begin at 9 a.m. on two Saturdays— June 1 and 8—at the Potter’s Wheel at 333 Jefferson Avenue, and include free lunches.
Prospective workers must be ages 14 through 19 and live in the 4th Ward. Those interested in receiving paid apprenticeships should apply at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 28, at the Potter’s Wheel. Applicants should bring state or school-issued photo identification and either a social security card or birth certificate. Those under 18 years of age also must bring a state work permit, which can be obtained through their schools.
Sculpt EVV is an annual juried outdoor sculpture exhibition in the Haynie’s Corner Arts District. Sculpt EVV and its Juried Art and Music Fest are a partnership between the City of Evansville and the University of Southern Indiana.
