    First Night Monterey, Monterey County's premier New Year's Eve celebration of the arts is in its 20th year, and the event on New Year's Eve 2012 promises to be the best one yet! This year's theme is "Celebrate Monterey" , and First Night is inviting visual and performing artists to submit their applications to be part of a family friendly, alcohol-free celebration to ring in 2013 in style. YOU ARE INVITED TO SUBMIT A PROPOSAL that will help Celebrate Monterey on First Night Monterey's 20th Anniversary. First Night Monterey is an interdisciplinary celebration of the arts and invites proposals for the following event activities: LARGE SCALE PUBLIC ART - TEMPORARY SITE-SPECIFIC INSTALLATIONS OF VISUAL AND/OR ENVIRONMENTAL ART THAT UTLIZE THE CITY LANDSCAPE. For example, sculpture, projections, and large-scale installation art that encourages public participation. Works that incorporate the celebration's theme in some way are desirable.PERFORMANCES - Short repeated performances of around 30-45 minutes each are sought for both afternoon and evening programs. Examples are: musical acts (musicians, bands, choral groups), theatrical presentations, dance, poetry and performance art. New and innovative works that are not technically complex are encouraged - First Night Monterey uses a range of traditional and non-traditional venues for its presentations.RESOLUTION PIECES - These are interactive sculptures and installations that mark the passage of time, inspire a sense of renewal, incorporate and/or respond to the public hopes, wishes and resolutions for the New Year. These pieces usually involve First Night participants writing a New Year's wish or resolution, and attaching it to the sculpture or artwork. Works that employ ways to bridge the day and evening sections of our celebration are highly desirable. WORKSHOPS and ACTIVITIES - Hands-on, fun events that get the First Night participants involved in making a hat or musical instrument, painting a picture, writing a poem or learning to dance, drum or juggle. The possibilities are endless for activities to bring people together on New Year's Eve.
