Olympic Spirit – Call for Artists

Unbound Visual Arts is looking for artwork that is about passion and determination. It does not need to relate directly to sports or the Olympics. We are also looking for manifestations of commitment, cooperation, courage, inspiration, and perseverance. An international perspective is encouraged.

Call for artists application

Deadline: 23 Aug 2015

The opening reception on Oct 1st is an official ArtWeek Boston event so there will be lots of extra publicity. There will be live music and refreshments from Whole Foods. Selected work will be delivered to UVA’s new convenient base of operations at the WGBH Brighton Landing building in Brighton, which has free parking for visitors.

Unbound Visual Arts manages the complete exhibition. Artists are never asked to hang or sit. Unbound chooses qualified curators (never the artist) and interesting educational themes and is interested in sharing contemporary art that has a purpose and meaning.
