Effigy & Temple Grants Largest in Apo History

submit my grant

Do you have a mind blowing idea for the Effigy or Temple?  The grant cycle for Apogaea 2014: Emergence has opened, and the Board of Directors has awarded a whopping $50,000(!!!) for art grants this year!  That’s right, we said FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!

As a part of that killer budget, we will be awarding grants for an Effigy and a Temple.  This year we would like to give $5,000.00 or more to the Effigy and the Temple.  If you feel that the Effigy or Temple is an important part of Apogaea, get your project idea and budget together and let Apogaea help you bring your art to the event this June!

 Apply for an Apogaea grant now to ensure you get the maximum amount of funding possible for your project!

In the past, Apogaea has mandated that Effigies and, in some cases, the Temple, be treated as commissioned art that is owned by Apogaea. Now, and in the interest of opening the Temple and Effigy application process to a wider variety of projects, Apogaea requests that you propose, as part of your application, whether you envision owning the Temple/Effigy upon completion and what you envision being done with it (should it be burned, stored by Apogaea and brought back for future years, taken to another event and burned, etc.?) and how you plan to address the logistics involved.  As with all aspects of your proposal, Apogaea may negotiate changes to your preferences. The final project, as mutually determined by you and Apogaea, will be reflected in a written contract before the grant is awarded.  In all cases, the artist will be responsible for transporting their project to the Apogaea event in June and setting it up.

 

Effigy

The Effigy artist is also responsible for:

  • Providing a detailed burn ban contingency plan that answers questions like: How you will handle burn restrictions?  What will you do if there is a burn ban?

  • Providing a detailed burn plan that answers questions like: How will your burn progress from beginning to end? How and where will you store the fuel/flammable materials? Where will fire suppression equipment be located?

  • Coordinating with the Rangers, BAMF, Fire Performance Leads, and any other Ignition Leads necessary to establish a coordinated burn plan and burn perimeter

  • Providing your own lights, generator, and fuel for lighting the project at night

If you are selected to build the Effigy, before the grant is awarded, you must negotiate ownership of the art with the Apogaea Board of Directors.  This is generally only important if there is a burn ban and the art cannot be burned.  In that case, someone has to take ownership of the art and remove it from the land, store it, and possibly bring it back the following year.

Temple

The Temple artist is responsible for:

  • Moving the installation on to the Effigy’s burn scar IF the Temple is being burned. There can only be one burn scar on the property.

  • Providing a detailed burn ban contingency plan that answers questions like: How you will handle burn restrictions?  What will you do if there is a burn ban?

  • Providing a detailed burn plan that answers questions like: How will your burn progress from beginning to end? How and where will you store the fuel/flammable materials? Where will fire suppression equipment be located?

  • Coordinating with the Rangers, BAMF, Fire Performance Leads, and any other Ignition Leads necessary to establish a coordinated burn plan and burn perimeter

  • Providing your own generator and fuel for lighting the project at night

If you are selected to build the Temple, before the grant is awarded, you must negotiate ownership of the art with the Apogaea Board of Directors.  This is generally only important if there is a burn ban and the art cannot be burned.  In that case, someone has to take ownership of the art and remove it from the land, store it, and possibly bring it back the following year.
