Request for Proposals: McColl Center Experiential Space, McColl Center for Art + Innovation, Charlotte, NC
Deadline: October 31, 2016
As a way to deepen McColl Center’s visitor experience and attract new visitors, the Center is requesting proposals that activate an artist’s studio at McColl Center with an innovative participatory experience. The project should be activated using an arts-based installation/project that is participatory in nature. A successful project should invite the public to actively engage as cultural participants while furthering the mission of McColl Center. The project can be designed with collaborators, in conjunction with previous works of art, or created as a new body of work. We invite all applicants to use their imagination to create an environment that is welcoming, compelling, and engaging.
Call for Art: Build, Ceil Gallery, Charlotte, North Carolina
Deadline: Aug 21, 2016
Up from the floors, out of the walls, down from the rafters, winding, reaching, arching, grasping — from ants to kings, we love to build. This exhibition will focus on design, structure and the process of building, to include both the functional and the whimsical, mechanical, stick-built or ethereal. Both man-made and organic structures may be featured, although no materials subject to deterioration within a 30 day window will be accepted. Possible materials might include wood, metal, wire, fabric, floss, hard trash, etc. There are no size restrictions; however, space will be a consideration. The gallery includes window space, wall space (sheetrock over brick), open rafters, painted cement flooring, and a rooftop area 20 feet above ground. Please notify us if there are any display restrictions (i.e. not suitable for exterior sites). Both 2-D and 3-D work will be considered. All US artists and artist teams are welcome to apply.
Residency: McColl Center for Art + Innovation, Charlotte, North Carolina
