Artist Call: Little Pantry

 VFW Post 11453 and Veterans’ Rock are seeking an artist (team of artists) to decorate/finish a Little Pantry that will be placed in front of the Veterans’ Rock facility, 605 S. Greeley Hwy, Suite 1, Cheyenne; across from Safeway.

Little Pantry at St. Mark's 

History: In 2017, Saint Mark’s Episcopal Church (1908 Central Ave, Cheyenne, WY) built eight identical Little Pantries. St. Mark’s has provided these Little Pantries to Cheyenne organizations/businesses to maintain for the benefit of any people in need. Recently St. Mark’s offered the eighth Little Pantry to Veterans’ Rock/VFW Post 11453. We are keen to promptly place this Little Pantry into service for all to use.

 

Outline: Both organizations are nonprofit with little funds available to support this project. We are very grateful to the people of our community who have helped us with our past activities and now call upon the artists in our community to help us with this project. We are able to award $150 for supplies or compensation for work; additionally we are willing to work with the artist(s) to solicit the donation of required art materials.

 

Timeline:

  • Now: Accepting submissions
  • Deadline extended, submissions due 31 July, 2021 Deadline Extended
  • August 12-18, 2021: Judge/Selection

  •  August 31, 2021: Artist work complete

  • August 31-September 11, 2021: Fill the Little Pantry Food Drive

  •  September 11, 2021: Place Little Pantry into service

 

Details: We would like a patriotic theme to our Little Pantry. Most of the material used to construct the Little Pantry is plywood, millwork, and acrylic sheet. We would like for the paint or whatever materials used to finish our Little Pantry to be able to withstand the harsh outside elements of South Greeley Highway for five years before needing further attention. To help you in the designing process we have provided some photographs and dimensions of the Little Pantry. If you would like to see a Little Pantry in use there is one outside of St. Mark’s Church.
