School 33 Art Center 2018 Project Space Call For Proposals

Ends on April 2, 2018

School 33 Art Center is now accepting proposals for 2018-2019 exhibitions in our 165 sq ft Project Space. Exhibitions will be approximately 6-8 weeks long and correspond with the exhibit dates of our Main and Members Galleries.

This application is free of charge and open to all. The application deadline is Monday night, April 2, 2018, at 11:59pm.

With the Project Space, School 33 Art Center is committed to providing opportunities for artists working in multiple forms of visual media to present intimate bodies of work, or to realize experimental installations for which they may not otherwise have the support. We are open to video projections, sculptural installations, and / or any other ideas for which this would be an ideal space. The interior of the Project Space can be fully altered by the artist (if so desired), including painting walls, ceilings, and floors, lighting, or building structures within. Stipends or reimbursements for non-transferable expenses such as building materials, paint, hauling / shipping, etc. may be offered by School 33 on a case by case basis. Applicants must be available to fully execute installation and deinstallation. Chosen artists will have an option to present programming relating to their work, such as an artist talk or workshop.
