Call for Proposals: Public Sculpture - Pelham Art Center: Ongoing

The Pelham Art Center is looking for work that can be sited for three months, activates the entire space while considering the scale, architecture, and use of the area. We strongly encourage site-specific proposals. Proposals will be selected by our Gallery Advisory Committee on the basis of:

Creativity/interactivity: Your work should be visually engaging and invite viewers of all ages to enter the courtyard to experience the work further.

Structural Integrity: Your work must be able to withstand three months of exposure to New York weather as well as unsupervised interaction from passers-by and visitors to the Art Center day and night.

Sustainability: Given the temporary nature of the installation, we encourage the submission of work created with found materials, or from materials that can be temporarily appropriated and then reused after the installation.

The artist will be responsible for transporting their work to and from the Art Center. Pelham Art Center will not pay for shipping, as well as being responsible for installing and de-installing their artwork. Pelham Art Center will not provide assistance for the installation and de-installation of the work.

Pelham Art Center offers a $200 stipend to help offset material costs.

Pelham Art Center will publicize the installation of the work through our regular notices and stories to local media outlets, our email database of 5000 as well as on our website. Pelham Art Center is located on Pelham’s main commercial street, with constant foot and car traffic passing by. The courtyard is used frequently by passersby and we can assure a constant flow of traffic and many eyes on the work. Three to six public events at the Art Center per quarter draw sizeable crowds as well.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Three-Four proposals will be realized per year.

Annual Entry Deadline: December 31

Art Connection in the Capital Region Seeks Artwork: Ongoing

The Art Connection in the Capital Region (ACCR) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization originated in 2004 to expand community access to art in the greater metropolitan area of Washington DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia.

Modeled after The Art Connection in Boston, which was founded by painter and sculptor Fay Chandler in 1995, ACCR facilitates the placement of original works of art donated by artists and art collectors within not-for-profit social service organizations to encourage healing and provide inspiration.

Organizations benefiting from this unique partnership often serve individuals faced with the most vulnerable circumstances and include: shelters, children's centers, and treatment facilities, amongst others.

The criterion for placement stipulates that a partnering organization must reside within the Capital Region and have no funding for art. Artwork that is donated to the not-for-profit is considered a permanent donation, cannot be sold, and must be exhibited in a secure public area where clients served by the organization have direct access to it.

Deadline: Ongoing.

To learn more about The Art Connection in the Capital Region, the communities it empowers, and the art donation process, click here or call 202-536-2607.
