Description

More than eighty artists have created installations for Eastern State Penitentiary’s cellblocks and yards. Some of these installations were among the most successful programming the site has presented, and brought perspectives and approaches that would not have been possible in traditional historic site programming.

We seek installations that will explore Eastern State Penitentiary’s history, and evoke a broad range of emotions. We seek installations that will make connections between the complex history of this building and today’s criminal justice system and corrections policies.

We want to humanize these difficult subjects with personal stories and distinct points of view. We want to hear new voices—voices that might emphasize the political, or humorous, or bluntly personal. We want our visitors to be challenged with provocative questions, and we’re prepared to face some provocative questions ourselves.

In short, we seek memorable, thought-provoking additions to our public programming, combined with true excellence in artistic practice. If our definition of this program seems broad, it’s because we’re open to approaches that we haven’t yet imagined.

Surprise us.

Description

The Painting Center, an artist-run gallery in Chelsea, announces a call for entries for its juried summer exhibition JuxtaPositions. We invite artists of all stripes to submit work that excites by forging new connections, and surprises by discovering unexpected juxtapositions.

Creativity isn’t only about making entirely new things out of whole cloth. The creative process can involve seeing old things in new contexts; joining things that previously seemed completely unrelated; or turning conventions, tropes and ideas upside down and inside out. Sometimes, these juxtapositions are humorous; sometimes, they are enigmatic, or striking; sometimes, they are shocking. High and low, serious and funny, real and fake, observed and invented, political and personal…these are all choices an artist can make in his or her work…but they aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive.

In a culture that is stuffed full of imagery, icons, argument, products, brands and just plain junk, can we invent something new by mining, reframing, re-contextualizing, and re-conceiving some of the ideas and objects that make up the cultural moment in which we live?

How to Apply

JuxtaPositions is open to all media.

Exhibition Dates: June 19 - July 14, 2018

Deadline for Submission: May 10, 2018

Notification Date: May 18, 2018

Call to Artists
City of Auburn 2018-19 Downtown Sculpture Gallery

The City of Auburn invites sculptors to submit applications for Auburn’s Downtown Sculpture Gallery. The works selected for this public art exhibition will be on loan to the City for a period of twelve months (12) and can be available for sale during that time.

Each selected artist will receive a $1,000 stipend. At the conclusion of the exhibition a sculpture from the exhibition may be purchased for inclusion in the City of Auburn’s permanent collection. The purchase budget is $10,000.

Application deadline: April 19, 2018 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time


PROJECT DETAILS

City of Auburn’s Downtown Sculpture Gallery showcases ten sculptures throughout its historic downtown. Public art is an integral part of the exciting renewal efforts on Main Street and underscores the critical role that artists and public art play in the revitalization of Auburn’s urban core.

Duration of Installation
The selected sculpture will be on view for 12 months from September 2018 – September 2019.

Artwork Specifications
Artwork may be in any media and must be durable, suitable for outdoors and able to withstand the elements as well as interaction with pedestrians and the general public. Works may be functional or non-functional. Existing sculptures as well as artwork proposals are accepted. Proposals can be submitted as a sketch/illustration along with examples of other work that demonstrates artistry, proficiency and finish quality.

Artwork Location
The artwork will be located throughout Auburn’s downtown and locations assigned by City staff. If there are preferences, they should be stated in the application materials. Artwork can be either welded onto or bolted onto a steel plate that is attached to a concrete pedestal. The concrete pedestals cannot be drilled into for the installation of the artwork (with the exception of the flush concrete pad), steel plates fitting the existing bolt pattern can be utilized, or artists can provide their own steel plate to fit upon the surface of the pedestal.

Stipend
The artist will be awarded a $1,000 artwork loan contract. The artist is responsible for transportation and installation of the artwork (installation with some city assistance). The artwork is insured by the City for the time the sculpture is on display, but not insured for any damage incurred during installation and/or deinstallation. The City of Auburn will provide signage to identify the artwork and will be featured on the City of Auburn’s website and included in a promotional brochure and poster. A walking tour will be hosted and a video created featuring the artists. Past examples can be viewed here.

Purchases
At the conclusion of the exhibition, the selection committee may select a work or works to be purchased for inclusion in the City of Auburn’s permanent collection. This will be determined in Spring 2019. A budget of $10,000 has been set aside for this purpose. There will be a “People’s Choice” vote held online and via printed ballots throughout the duration of the exhibition. The winning sculptor will receive a $500 “People’s Choice Prize”. No commission will be taken from artwork sold to private sales, but the City reserves the first right of refusal.

Deadline to Apply

4/15/2018

Description

Project Background:
Creating artwork on the South Main Street wall was part of the recommendations that came out of the 2003 Urban Design Plan and was discussed in two charrettes that were conducted this past year. The two charrettes cumulatively involved about twenty community stakeholders that discussed how to beautify South Main Street. The 2003 Urban Design Plan was a year-long planning process, which involved at least 100 community members.

Eligibility & Selection Criteria:
We are seeking a person or team who meet the following qualifications:
- Demonstrated experience with public art.
- Aesthetic excellence in the design and execution of completed projects.
- Ability to design, fabricate, install and/or oversee the fabrication and installation of commissioned work.
- Consider the physical constraints of the site, installation permitting requirements, and resistance to vandalism.
- Ability to apply a racial justice lens and an understanding of cultural and historical context of the Nihonmachi/Chinatown International District to the process and final product.
- Engage community at least in the conceptual phase of the design.
- Ability to work with an existing steering committee comprised of community stakeholders.

Project Budget:
The total budget for the Danny Woo Community Art Wall Project is $15,000, with approximately half of the budget going to artist fees and half going towards funding for the artist/artist team, management, fabrication, and materials.

Project Timeline:
Phase 1 – Artist Search
April 13th: Deadline for submission of artist qualifications
April 20th: Steering Committee selects 2-3 finalists
May 24th: Finalists present concepts/fabrication models/panels to Steering Committee for review
May 31st: Final artist selected via evaluation rubric; artists notified with committee and public feedback
Phase 2 – Design Development: June – July
Phase 3 – Implementation: August – September
Phase 4 – Unveiling/Opening Celebration: Late September

Cultural and Historical Significance of the Site:
Nihonmachi (Japantown) is a neighborhood was once a vibrant community of Japanese immigrants that suffered from cultural abandonment when the population was forced to leave during the Japanese internment. As early as 1891, Nihonmachi served as the heart of Seattle’s Japanese American community, and at its height the area thrived with a variety of businesses including bathhouses, barber shops, theaters, a health clinic, and dry goods stores that extended at least 22 square blocks. During WWII 7,000 Japanese Seattle residents were forcibly removed.
The Danny Woo Community Garden was founded in 1975 and is located in Seattle’s Chinatown-International District at 620 South Main Street. The Garden is approximately 1.5 acres and contains nearly 100 plots that are cultivated and cared for by elderly Asian immigrant residents of the neighborhood. The garden is also home to a children's garden, chicken coop, outdoor kitchen, and fruit tree orchard. As the largest green space in the Chinatown/International District and Little Saigon area, the Danny Woo Community Garden is an essential place for the surrounding community to engage with nature, access safe and healthy food, and build cohesion with neighbors.
Asian American Activism: Leading up to the Garden’s creation in 1975, the Chinatown-International District was already a hub for community engagement and activism. Spearheaded by the Filipino-American civil rights leader “Uncle Bob” Santos, the Chinatown-International District became the center of Seattle’s Asian American empowerment movement in the 1960s. Working with other influential Seattle civil rights leaders, Santos successfully rallied community members and businesses together to protest various developments that would threaten the well-being of the neighborhood and its residents. In 1971, Santos became the leader of InterIm CDA and immediately set to work developing and enhancing health services, recreation, and affordable housing in the Chinatown-International District. The main goal of Santos and InterIm was to resist the gentrification of their neighborhood, and to prevent the neighborhood from “succumbing to outside commercial influences.”

Description

The title of the show, yəhaw̓, is drawn from the Coast Salish story of Native people from all tribes uniting around a common cause and lifting up the sky together. In the spirit of the story, this exhibition will be a collective portrait of Native America, including creatives of all ages and stages in their careers, from Urban and Reservation communities, working in contemporary and traditional materials, and in ways that may or may not be widely recognized as Native. And just as, historically, Indigenous makers seamlessly imbued utilitarian objects with spiritual and artistic meaning, we seek to challenge the false divide between craft and fine art, as well as high and low art, by equally valuing all objects as part of our cultural continuum.

The exhibition will also be accompanied by mentorship opportunities to support continued artistic development in the Indigenous community, and we hope that all exhibition participants will gain experience and exposure, and create sustaining relationships.

We are giving up curatorial control through the open call process to empower Native artisans to retake ownership of their representation. By creating an opportunity for the community to speak for itself through a wide range of individual and sometimes conflicting perspectives, we aim to unsettle assumptions and begin a critical new dialogue about what Native American art is and can be. We hope yəhaw̓ will reflect a nuanced, inclusive, and community-driven narrative that firmly establishes Native creatives as belonging in the here and now.

Description

Camp Solomon Schechter invites professional artists or artist teams to submit their qualifications for consideration to design, fabricate, and install donor recognition artwork at our facility in Tumwater, WA.

Schechter (www.campschechter.org) has a 60-year tradition of fun, friendship, and Jewish education in the Pacific Northwest. We create a unique, welcoming, and spiritual Jewish environment, offering an innovative experience for youth of all denominations entering 2nd - 12th grades. We are located an hour south of Seattle, Washington, and two hours north of Portland, Oregon, nestled in the shadow of Mt. Rainier in Tumwater, Washington. Our spectacular 180-acre wooded facility features breathtaking views of our private lake, where campers can swim and paddle boat. Hiking in the untouched beauty of our own forests and protected wetlands augment our exciting outdoor program.

For this project, Schechter will commission an artist or artist team to design, fabricate, and install:
- An outdoor donor “wall,” i.e., a display in a conspicuous location at camp that lists the names of the people, foundations, and companies that contributed to our recent capital building project; and
- Naming opportunity “plaques,” i.e., individualized displays honoring people, foundations, and companies that committed funds to the capital building project in exchange for having their name associated with a building, room, driveway, or the like at the camp.

For this call, the terms “wall” and “plaques” are being used loosely and, even though we initially envisioned this project to be metalwork, we encourage artists using other media (or cross-media) to apply and let us know how your medium/media fit this project – examples include resin, hard plastics, epoxy, concrete, plaster, or stone.

Since our facility is primarily a summer camp and outdoor-focused, a traditional wall is less appealing to us. We would like the artist or artist team to work with our project committee to find a creative way to recognize the donors to our capital campaign that embodies Schechter and Jewish summer camping. For example, one idea that has been discussed is a donor fence where metal bands, with the donors names etched or cut into the bands, are woven around metal fence posts. It could be finished off with canoe-shaped flower boxes on top to tie it into the camp logo and the numerous canoes that are seen throughout camp. This, of course, is only one idea, and we look forward to the creative process to find the right concept that fits the camp.

The naming opportunity “plaques” should coordinate with the donor “wall” and will include named buildings, rooms, mezuzahs, driveways, walking paths, and even a tree and a fishing hole.

The budget for design, fabrication, and installation, inclusive of all artist fees, travel, materials, etc. is $25,000. (Room and board will be provided separate from this budget while the artist or artist team is working at camp.) Art should require limited maintenance and withstand the area’s climate. Artists should also consider the high amount of activity at camp, not only during the summer but also in the “off-season.”

How to Apply

To apply, submit the following materials to jnobbe@campschechter.org:
• A succinct letter of interest, indicating your vision and approach for the project
• A professional resume or CV with qualifications
• Three professional references with current contact information
• Visual support materials of previous work; 10 images max
• Annotated image list to accompany any submitted images

All submissions must be received by the end of the day on Monday, 4/30/2018. Interviews with selected candidates will take place in early- to mid-May with selection of artist or artist team to occur by the end of the month. The design, fabrication and installation of the artwork will take place during the summer of 2018.

Jewish artists are strongly encouraged to apply.

Questions? Contact Jef Nobbe at jnobbe@campschechter.org or 206-693-3039.

As a general rule, artists are responsible for shipping and any associated fees with preparing the work for exhibition. The gallery has a limited budget, but we are open to discussing additional programming, which may include a modest contribution toward those expenses, subject to available funding.
The gallery is committed to promoting our exhibitions through press releases, local and regional arts calendars, college PR resources, print and social media.

Installation date-range will be provided to the artist, and the artist is encouraged to hang their own show, though we are willing to work with you individually if assistance is needed. De-installation occurs after the closing reception concludes.

The gallery has a limited budget, but we are open to discussing additional programming, which may include a modest contribution toward those expenses, subject to available funding.
The gallery is committed to promoting our exhibitions through press releases, local and regional arts calendars, college PR resources, print and social media.
