Open call for crankie artists!

Rumput is seeking an artist to produce a crankie (panoramic scrolling artwork) to accompany a song for our live shows.  Submit a proposal including a brief outline of your concept and a miniature scroll as a work sample — any size or medium (receipt paper, electronic file, etc.)

One artist will be chosen to create a full-sized crankie to be used in live performance. We will provide a 36” tall roll of Tyvek for the final piece. (You’re free to use other materials too, but it must be as tough and translucent as Tyvek.)  If we use your work you will receive a percentage of the proceeds every time it is used.

Proposal Deadline: March 24th
