Deadline: 9 Mar 2015.
Artist are encouraged to present work that relates to a hotel environment. This is a one day event. Artists must agree to open their rooms for public viewing from 5-10 p.m. on May 7th, 2015. Artwork must be installed and removed by the artist. Check in- 2pm, May 7th, check out 12 noon, May 8th. Fees apply to all rooms and run from $90 to $130 depending on the space. Sale of artwork is permitted and encouraged. There is no commission.
This has been a wildly successful event in each of the years we’ve done it. Last year over 4000 people passed through the hotel in just five hours. Most artists are assigned rooms but there are also some outdoor spaces (courtyard and outer walls) plus lobby and bathrooms which have been used for art, performance and music. In the past, the most successful art has had some relationship to the hotel environment or has been a clever use of the space. Due to the short run time, most of the artist have come from the Pacific Northwest but we’ve also had artists from Europe and California.
