smART Space Program – Call for Installation Artists
ReCreative Spaces is now accepting submissions for installation artwork proposals on behalf of the Office of the Arts for the Recreation, Parks, and Cultural Activities Department of Alexandria, Virginia for their SmART Space Program.
Deadline: 11 Jan 2016
Installation art is used in the broadest sense. We are looking for innovative, compelling, and community-inclusive work. All mediums, styles, and collaborations including those not necessarily associated with installation artwork will be considered. Group submissions are encouraged. There is no fee to submit.
Up to ten artists or groups will be selected to create installation work over the course of approximately ninety days within vacant, commercial properties throughout Alexandria, VA. Artists will be paid a commission of $2,500-$5,000 per project.
ReCreative Spaces partners with businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits to develop arts-focused, community-based programming. We make space for art in unused, underused, and unlikely spaces. We are a place for communities to gather and share their passion for art of all kinds. We foster creativity, collaboration, and community. By offering site-specific programming and events, we aim to cultivate artistic expression, build community, encourage social collaboration, and increase civic participation.
