Entry Deadline: 6/24/16
Days remaining to deadline: 30

The City of Napa invites artists with experience in creative place making to submit qualifications for the Dwight H. Murray Plaza improvement project. Constructed in 1974, the Plaza is currently an underused civic space in downtown Napa. With the intensification of retail development in the area, the City has initiated plans to redefine and reactivate the Plaza, one of the most visible places in the downtown area and a traditional gathering place for community events.

 As part of a visioning process, a series of community meetings were held to help create a plan for the redevelopment of the Plaza. Throughout the process public art was identified as a key element that could enhance and enrich the experience of the Plaza for residents and visitors. It is the City’s intent to select one artist or artist team to conceptualize and produce unique art elements that activate the Plaza and serve as visual landmarks for this newly designed civic space.

For the complete RFQ and other information about the Dwight Murray Plaza Redesign please go to:  http://www.cityofnapa.org

The Athenaeum Invitational, 2016

VIEW MORE INFO

Fee: $35.00 (The Athenaeum Invitational, 2016)
Event Dates: 3/18/16 - 8/28/16
Entry Deadline: 8/28/16
Days remaining to deadline: 95

Underwritten by TTR | Sotheby's International Realty, The Athenaeum Invitational celebrates the arts of Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia and West Virginia in the Athenaeum Gallery in Alexandria, VA. It is a theme-based event featuring the works of both specially-invited artists who have exhibited in the Athenaeum Gallery in the past, as well as works selected through a call for submissions open to anyone living or working in Virginia, the District of Columbia, or Maryland.  A $1500 prize for the best work will be awarded to an invited artist, and a $1000 prize will be awarded to an artist from the open call. The show is juried by Athenaeum Gallery Director, Twig Murray.  Prize winners will be selected by a noted art expert, who has yet to be determined.

Theme: Oh! The joy!
The theme asks artists to reflect on a moment of pure joy. It is inspired by the Lewis and Clark expedition across the unchartered North American continent to reach the Pacific Ocean. After an arduous, two-year trek, William Lewis crested a hill, saw the vast body of water and cried, “The Ocean in view. Oh! The joy!”

Entries might explore that singular burst of relief and satisfaction after enduring a difficult task, or the magic of being struck by something unexpected and delightful, or the sudden transformation that is experienced in sheer ebullience. It is the ephemeral and evanescent quality of a joyous moment we invite artists to respond to.

All entries must include a brief statement discussing how the work of art relates to the theme.
