March 2, 2017 — (Key West, FL). Key West Art & Historical Society Offers Stipends for Kinetic Coaches in Schools

The Second Annual Papio Kinetic Sculpture and Art Bike Parade is set for May 5-7, and the Key West Art & Historical Society seeks artists to help students in schools prepare and create dynamic moving artworks using STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) principals.

Selected artists will receive a $1200 stipend to conduct a brainstorming session and two three-hour workshops with students at two different schools, presenting information on kinetic art principles and application, and team mobile sculpture idea development and production.

“Artists will share their ideas and skills with the students, keeping them motivated and the project on track,” says Adele Williams, Society Director of Education. Interested artists can contact Williams at 305.295.6616 x 115. Deadline to apply is March 6th. Schools interested in participating can also inquire.

The Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council of the Arts and Culture, and the State of Florida. Additional support provided by the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, Historic Tours of America, Margaritaville Key West Resort & Marina and Southernmost Beach Café.

Horace O’Bryant Middle School student Sadie Dodds employed a router last year in artist Jimmy Wray’s workshop to craft a wheel for her class’s 2016 Stanley Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade entry. A limited number of stipends are available now for artists to lead students in the creation of entries for the Second Annual Papio Kinetic Sculpture and Art Bike Parade, set for May 5-7.
