OPEN TO: All New York City-based emerging artists without exclusive gallery representation.
Beginning June 1st at 12:01am, ArtBridge, a non-profit arts organization that transforms overhead construction scaffolding (sidewalk bridges) into temporary exhibition space for the work of emerging artists, opened its month-long call for entries for its 2010-2011 Exhibition Year. ArtBridge intends to curate up to eight (8) exhibitions this year for which no more than 25 artists per installation will be chosen.
After a successful 480-foot inaugural installation on West Chelsea’s historic London Terrace Gardens, ArtBridge intends to bring its first-of-its kind projects to communities throughout the five boroughs, beautifying neighborhoods while giving emerging artists unprecedented exposure: all chosen work will be enlarged to billboard size, printed on eco-friendly, fade resistant material, and hung prominently outdoors from three months to one year.
Please visit www.art-bridge.org for more about the organization, to download the Submission Guidelines and upload entries directly through the website. Each applicant may submit up to three pieces for consideration and will be required to pay an entry fee of $25 for one submission, $40 for two, and $55 for three entries. If accepted there will be a participation fee of $195 (from which already-paid entry fees will be deducted).
Entries will be accepted until July 1 at 11:59PM.
Please direct all questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing your innovative work and to the prospect of welcoming you to the ever-growing community of ArtBridge artists.
