Know a creative Dearborn teenager?
The Pockets of Perception Project is looking to recruit members for its second student design team.
The POP Project brings together 10th-12th graders from different backgrounds, interests and Dearborn high schools to participate in a design project from September 2012-June 2013. This year's team will be comprised of 10 students, selected by the POP Committee from qualified applicants.
The first POP Design Team was charged with the goal of creating two interconnected pieces of permanent art for the City of Dearborn. The resulting sculptures, titled We Are One Community, were installed in the spring of 2012 in City Hall Park and the west Dearborn pocket park.
This year's project, according to sponsoring organization the Dearborn Community Fund, will focus on design a permanent public art installation to be displayed in Dearborn's new intermodal train station, set to open in the fall of 2013.
Applicants who are accepted as POP team members are hired as design apprentices and will receive a stipend of up to $1,000 upon successful completion of the project.
The POP Team will develop a concept and design for a work of public art, expanding and developing the design to its final phase, assisting in creating the work of art and installing it in its assigned location. During the process, the team will have an opportunity to interact with the Neumann-Smith train station designers.
The POP Committee will select the 2012-2013 POP Design Team after careful review of all applications. Applications must be received by Aug. 13. The team will be announced Aug. 30.
