Off the Hook Arts announces a call for artists for Interconnections, a unity and diversity juried art show.
Deadline: 4 Apr 2016
Interconnections is a collaborative arts event of classical chamber music performance, morning hands, and a juried professional art show. Local artists are welcomed to submit smaller pieces that reflect their impressions of how visual art and music interconnect in a relevant and meaningful way in our culture and time.
In an attempt to encourage purchasing of art work, we will place inserts in programs and in prominent locations in the gallery and advise patrons that purchased works can be donated back to our Off the Hook Arts Lending Library. In return, we will help find permanent public and private locations for art work to be hung which will be viewed by children and their families on a daily basis. The goal is to promote the value and beauty of visual art in every day spaces. Organizations involved in these gifts will be Poudre School District schools, local hospitals and rehabilitation centers, Habitat for Humanity, and Project Self Sufficiency.
Artists benefit from sale of works with a 70/30 split with Off the Hook Arts Academy education programs. Two tickets to the Grand Opening with music provided by the Miami String Quartet on June 23rd with food and wine reception included.
We are encouraging patrons to purchase works and donate them back to our Lending Library so that children can gain a deeper understanding about the value and beauty of real visual art work in the spaces in which they live.
Off the Hook Arts’ goal is to promote a deeper understanding of the value and pure joy of learning more about music, live performance, and the connectedness that all types of music have to each other. We seek to educate people about the importance of interdisciplinary interaction of science and music. We give youth the opportunity to have these experiences to spur on their own development whether it be from taking one of our SummerFest STEAM classes or by being coached in a chamber music group at their school. When youth are exposed to high levels of artistry across all disciplines, they will be inspired to think creatively about their own futures as scientists, artist, musicians, entrepreneurs, or whatever career they pursue.
