Call for Entries / Deadline extended

Here, There, Anywhere
DEADLINE: FRIDAY, April 2, 2010 / Deadline extended
Contact Kim Domanski  

Here, There, Anywhere, an outdoor artwork exhibition, is currently open for submissions. This exhibition will open in July 2010, run through October 31, 2010, and will be located on the Artscape site on Mt. Royal near the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Artscape will be creating uniform pedestals approximately 40” high X 24” X 24” to display each of the artworks. These pedestals will be installed along the median on Mt. Royal Avenue between Dolphin and Lanvale Streets. Artists will be asked to create sculptures or other artworks that utilize these outdoor pedestals in some manner.

In addition to the displayed artwork, artists will be asked to take an image of their work and ‘Photoshop’ it into a location of the artist’s choosing. There are no limitations on location or scale of artwork that is digitally sited, nor is there a limit to the number of locations that the artist chooses to digitally place the work. These images will be on view on a Here, There, Anywhere Flickr website, as well as digitally in the Meyerhoff Gallery at MICA from July 16th through August 1, 2010. If an artist does not have the computer capabilities to digitally site their work, BOPA will provide some assistance provided that a digital image of the work and an image of the site is submitted by June 15, 2010.

Submissions will be reviewed by an independent panel of jurors.

Here, There, Anywhere is a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA).
Artscape is produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. on behalf of the
Baltimore Festival of the Arts, Inc.

1. Artists may submit proposals for new works or the placement of existing works.
2. BOPA will provide stipends to selected artists of $250.00. Stipends are for construction and transport of the work. Onsite installation equipment and labor within reason may be provided by BOPA in addition to stipend. On site support will be negotiated after proposals have been selected.
3. Artwork must be affixed onto Artscape provided pedestals, which will be uniform and approximately 40” high X 24” X 24”.
4. All proposed work should be designed to withstand an outdoor, high-traffic unmonitored environment with very limited maintenance for the duration of the show. Artists should take into consideration the possibility of severe adverse weather conditions and the safety of the audience.
