Screen shot 2013-01-19 at 5.44.53 PM

How are your Italian and German language reading skills for completing some of these submissions? If you need help try Google Translate.


The focus of this edition is on exploring the effectiveness of synergy in contemporary art. Every work of art consists of the *articulation* between varied experiences whose contribution persists in their existence even when the work is finished. But how apparently different techniques are capable of working together in order to create a harmonious artistic composition?

Deadline January 25, 2013   For more information click here.

Public Art Opportunities for Temporary Exhibitions and Permanent Installation

Shortly after this most recent presidential election, I noticed a bit of news on how a city in the state of Michigan had voted against funding a public arts program. While I am glad to learn that other cities, such as Boston, are expanding their public art programs. The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy  recently completed their planning process for a five year public art strategy supported by Fund for the Arts, a public art program of the New England Foundation for the Arts. This new public art strategy currently has two Calls for Artists  for temporary exhibitions of contemporary work, including one for an outdoor light installation. A unique aspect of the Greenway Conservancy projects is that they invite and welcome artist feedback and ideas.

The City of St. Paul, Minnesota, currently has two openings for artist residencies within their Public Art program– with a deadline of October 15th to apply. One artist residency will be designated Streets and Open Spaces and the other Temporal & Engagement with selected artist completing projects in performance, events and social practice.

The are many public art lists of Calls for Artists and RFQs online for your geographic area. To keep up on the latest information, join the LinkedIN group Public Art for Artists, where you can interact with specialists.
