SCHOOL 33 CALLS FOR ENTRIES FOR CO-LAB(ORATION)

Call for Entries: Co-Lab(oration)
Project #4 Rain Garden

Application Deadline: December 1,  2014
All submissions must be received by School 33 by 5 PM on Monday, December 1, 2014. Materials received after December 1 will not be considered.

Notification Date: Monday, December 15, 2014

School 33 Art Center is now accepting artist portfolios. Artists interested in collaborating with other artists of different disciplines to create an outdoor installation within the new rain garden on the Birckhead Street side of the historic School 33 building should apply. Three artists will be selected to collaborate on this project, which will be on view for at least one year. Each selected artist will be awarded a honorarium of $3000 for this collaboration. This project also comes with a budget for supplies and materials. Individual artists will be selected based on the strength of their portfolios.  No proposals should be submitted. Artists are invited to visit School 33 Art Center and see the actual space prior to submitting a portfolio for consideration.

This project is part of the ongoing Co-Lab(oration) project at School 33 Art Center funded by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation's Artistic Innovation and Collaboration Grant.

Once artists are selected on December 12, 2014, they must thereafter be available to meet regularly to collaborate, create and implement the new rain garden environment, which will should be installed and fully completed during June, July and August 2014. If you are not available locally during this timeframe, do not submit your portfolio for this application. The finished project will be unveiled in early September 2014.

Co-Lab(oration) is an on-going platform for diverse artists to work collaboratively in a process of creative exploration, resulting in the development of multiple new works. The project should cultivate the production and exhibition of new artwork that integrates the ideas of artists from varied disciplines, encourage artistic experimentation and creative risk-taking to support the development of innovative practices or new artistic forms.

Selections will be made by our panel of jurors:

  • Linda DePalma, Prolific public artist and educator, working in the areas of large-scale sculpture and mixed-media
  • Melissa Webb, Exhibitions Manager for School 33 Art Center and Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts

To submit your portfolio for this opportunity you must be a current School 33 Art Center member. If you would like to join School 33 or renew your membership, please visit school33.org or call 443-263-4350. Artist Memberships are $35 annually. All artist members are encouraged to apply.
