Below is the email text from Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts:
The Bemis Center is pleased to announce a call for artists for Typecast | Recast, a public art exhibition presented by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) - Plains States Region. ADL will commission between 6 and 10 artists to produce temporary site-specific works for North 12th Street in downtown Omaha between Mike Fahey and Douglas streets, with individual commissions ranging from $5,000 to $8,500.
ADL and the Bemis Center believe Typecast | Recast will catalyze conversation and learning around contemporary art to improve the culture of our community. This exhibition will activate and amplify the urban conditions of a seven-block stretch of downtown Omaha, Nebraska through innovative and adventurous temporary public artworks.
We are seeking qualifications from artists who have experience working in the public realm, as well as from artists for whom the project would represent an expansion of their practice. Artists will be selected through a two-part process. Artists are invited to submit their qualifications and interest by March 2nd. A short list of artists will then be invited to present proposals to a selection panel, and the public in early April. The exhibition will open in September, 2013 and run through July, 2014.

DEADLINE FOR 2013-14 CYCLE: MARCH 25, 2013, MIDNIGHT
The Rocket Grants program was launched in 2009 by the Charlotte Street Foundation in Kansas City, MO and the KU Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence, KS, in partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The program aims to fuel the energy of the Kansas City regional visual arts community by encouraging and supporting innovative, public-oriented work in non-traditional spaces.
Rocket Grants enable individuals and groups of artists to take new risks with their work, push the scope and scale of their activities, develop and pursue collaborative projects, and engage with the public and public realm in inventive and meaningful ways. With the specific goals of developing new kinds of audiences and providing frameworks for the growth of further experimentation, awarded projects create unconventional and expansive forms of interaction, exchange, provocation, and surprise.
Now in its third year, the Rocket Grants program has awarded $121,000 in direct funds to thirty projects, involving at least seventy-two artists working in multiple media. Hundreds of other artists have been integrally and peripherally included in the performances, publications, workshops, artist-run spaces, videos, public installations, events and websites that the awards have funded. To learn more about this program and the projects supported byRocket Grants please explore this site.
The Andy Warhol Foundation has invested in the creation of a growing national network of regional re-granting programs – supporting Alternative Exposure in San Francisco, California; The Idea Fund in Houston, Texas; and The Propeller Fund in Chicago, Illinois in addition to the Rocket Grants program. The Foundation aims to support the independent creative activity of artists by partnering with leading artist-centered, visual arts organizations across the country.
