THEME
Words can connect with people personally and emotionally and, when combined with visual elements, can create a powerful impact. Text can convey a message or express an idea through written words, letters, numbers, or symbols. The use of text in art is a powerful tool that can add depth, meaning, and emotion to a piece. Whether it's used to express a message, provide additional context, or as a visual element, text can allow a more dynamic and engaging viewing experience. Show us ConTEXT from your perspective.

Description

The 63rd St Mural has a long history as being a prominent focal point in Seattle. It is located on the north side of N 63rd St at Aurora Ave N, an area that receives high foot and wheel traffic. There have been murals at this site since the 1990s, the most recent of which was Michiko Tanaka’s mural (pictured above), created in 2014 by a group of community members with support from the PNA. Thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers this mural outlasted its 5-year life expectancy and was painted over in 2021.

Now, the PNA, with support from the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture and the local community, is leading the effort to paint a new 63rd St Mural during the summer of 2023 that is both created by and a reflection of our vibrantly diverse Seattle community. The theme of this project is Belonging.

The mural is divided into five connected sections (shown below) that make up a total span of over 200 feet. Applications for both artists and community groups are open through May 31, 2023. A committee of community members and arts leaders will select five artists and five community groups to work together on painting one section each. The new mural will be complete by the end of August 2023.

How to Apply

Apply online https://www.phinneycenter.org/63rd-st-mural/. Information about eligibility, compensation, and your responsibilities is available in the Info Packet (linked on that web page). The application deadline is 11:59 PM PDT on Wednesday, May 31, 2023.

Gallery B612 'Freedom' Art Exhibition

Call Type: Exhibition

Call Eligibility: National

Entry Dates: Now - May 28, 2023

Entry Fee: $25 (3 pieces maximum), $5 each additional (maximum 10 pieces total)

Location: 1915 1st Ave S, Seattle Washington, 98134
Gallery B612 is located in the heart of SODO. Just two blocks south from the T-Mobile Stadium and Lumen Field, and two blocks north of Starbucks Headquarters.

Apply Here: https://galleryb612freedom.artcall.org/

Gallery Website: www.galleryb612.com

Gallery: Initially founded in mid 2020 under Prince and Fox, LLC, Gallery B612 aspires to be a gathering place for artists, dancers, fashion designers and creatives from all walks of life. To this date, the gallery has featured a Solo Exhibition from founder and curator, MiYoung Margolis and served as a gathering place and rehearsal space for MMDC and Dare to Dance.

Gallery B612 is a literary reference to Asteroid B612 in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's book The Little Prince. Gallery B612 is our "art planet," our gallery and studio, in the Seattle SODO neighborhood.

We believe it's important to provide space for artists to share their voice in a physical representation where others can view and discuss the pieces as well as mingle with each other. In our modern American world, there are less and less public spaces for people to spend their free time. Here, we will hope to provide safety and connection for the Seattle community.

Exhibition: The Freedom Exhibition will highlight and explore its significance in various contexts. We want to present a thought-provoking commentary on the importance of freedom in shaping our lives and society or at an individual level. We are open to a diverse range of artworks that explore the theme of personal freedom and self-expression as well as different aspects presented through political, social, and personal freedoms. We are open to artworks including paintings, sculptures, installations, and photographs created by both established and emerging artists.

As we know, personal freedoms are defined by individuals through various avenues, such as financially, religiously, politically, and through personal expression, including the freedom of thought, expression, and creativity and following your own path to happiness. Some examples of important impacts of freedom in our history are Juneteenth and June 20th’s World Refugee Day. With the access to freedom, we are reminded of the power of imagination and the role of artistic expression in fostering individualism and personal growth.

From paintings to sculptures, each piece will portray a unique perspective on the theme, offering visitors a glimpse into the diverse ways in which freedom can be interpreted and represented. It offers a powerful reminder that freedom is not just a political ideal but a fundamental human right that must be defended and protected.

Description

Artistic Director
Mission
Northwest Film Forum incites public dialogue and creative action through collective cinematic experiences.

About Northwest Film Forum (NWFF)
A nonprofit film and arts center located in Seattle, NWFF presents hundreds of films, festivals, community events, multidisciplinary performances, and public discussions each year. A comprehensive visual media organization, NWFF offers educational workshops and artist services for film and media makers at all stages of their development. Artist services include access to space, gear, fiscal sponsorship, and an edit lab. Northwest Film Forum is a member-based organization. Our slogan is: MAKE FILMS / MAKE FRIENDS / MAKE CHANGE!

Vision
Our vision is a world where all people have the power to express themselves and connect with each other through visual storytelling and culture.

Values
Based in the city currently known as Seattle, we acknowledge that we are located on the ancestral lands and territories of the Coast Salish people, including the Duwamish Tribe (Dkhw Duw’Absh), who are still present among us and leading much of the important cultural and societal work in the region. NWFF donates 2% of our proceeds to the Duwamish Tribe as an action towards restitution.

In recognition of the role of the arts as a vehicle for social change, we are committed to undoing systems of oppression in our work and lives. We are working everyday to learn and dismantle racist, sexist, and inequitable systems in our lives and organization.
