Entry Deadline: 2/12/16

Overview
Aim Chai is a community-wide fundraising effort.  It connotes our Jewish heritage and culture. Together, our community is working to raise significant endowment, transformation and community resources which will help us realize our vision of a stronger, more vibrant and financially secure Greater Hartford Jewish community. In Hebrew “Chai” can be defined as life. This campaign aims to invigorate the life of our community by helping to provide financial resources which will strengthen and secure its future.   

Statement of Purpose
Purposes: to engage an artist who will create an outdoor sculpture or similar work which will embody the spirit of Aim Chai and represent our community effort today and for generations to come and to acknowledge the visionary donors who have invested in the future of our community.

Over the past 3 years, the Greater Hartford Jewish Community has engaged in a major endowment campaign to raise funds which will help strengthen the financial underpinning of our community.  Working with over 28 community agencies, organizations and synagogues we have secured close to $35 million in endowment funds; well on our way to our goal of $40 million.  We are now ready to recognize those individuals in our community who have shown the foresight to support this effort and provide necessary funding which will assist these institutions for generations to come. 

Phase I proposals are due by February 12, 2016 via the CaFÉ website.  We plan on unveiling this work at a public recognition ceremony in fall of 2016.

The mission of the Art Around the Clock program is to regularly introduce original art into the heart of Redmond to create a unique sense of place and enhance community identity.  This will be the third round of a successful program that has brought considerable exposure to participating artists.  The art installation will also be marketed by the City of Redmond as an artwork for sale and will be displayed prominently in various locations throughout the City but mostly within the city center. 

The duration of the installation is for two years.  Each artist will be provided a stipend of $750 for the installation of each art piece.  The City of Redmond will underwrite the costs for installation of the art piece on concrete and metal pedestals designed especially for the program.  (Please contact us for details).  All proposals need to be able to attach to the pedestals. At the end of the installation period, the community of Redmond will be invited to vote on a “People’s Choice Award” that will be purchased by RCAPP as part of the City of Redmond’s permanent public art collection. 

Proposals are due by 5:00 PM, March 15, 2016.

The deadline for installation is July 1, 2016.

Whether in your most deeply bonded relationships or within a passing interaction with strangers—what fundamental quality or qualities do you bring to the space and subsequently leave behind in the minds of others.

Call for Entry - "Support and Defend" - Art Relevant to the Veteran Experience

Open to artists who are current or past members of the U.S. Armed Forces or their immediate family members. 

Every member of the U.S. Armed Forces takes an oath that includes the phrase "support and defend.”  For veterans and their family members, the experiences that follow that oath are specific to each individual and may be hard to grasp for those outside the Armed Forces community. Many of those experiences are complex and enduring–perhaps lifelong.

This exhibition of 2D and 3D artworks, accompanied by the artists’ written words, will reflect the military experiences of veterans or their family members and create an opportunity and forum for artists to share a personal expression of that experience. Many veterans and their families want to tell their stories, but those conversations can be difficult to start. Often, art can be the starting place.

Sponsored by the Art League of Rhode Island, the selected artworks and their relevance statements will be exhibited at The VETS Gallery in Providence.  Prof. Thomas F. Morrissey, Community College of Rhode Island, Professor of Visual and Digital Art (http://morrisseyartworks.com/) and Ken Steinkamp, painter, ALRI Elected Artist Member (http://kensteinkamp.com/) will juror the call for entry.  Both jurors are veterans.
