Ragdale, the nationally acclaimed artists’ residency program in Lake Forest, invites architects, designers and artists to apply for the opportunity to design, build, and exhibit the 2015 Ragdale Ring, a temporary outdoor theatre to house summer concerts, performances, and events. Ragdale seeks proposals for a full-scale project and installation that consider contemporary, fanciful and functional interpretations of the original Ragdale Ring, designed by architect Howard Van Doren Shaw in 1912 as a garden theatre. A jury of architects, artists and arts administrators will select a single project to realize at full scale on the Ragdale grounds.
