Call for Proposals – InLight Richmond 2015

Deadline May 31: 1708 Gallery, a non-profit based in Richmond, VA, invites national and international artists working in all media and disciplines (including performance) to submit proposals for InLight Richmond 2015, 1708 Gallery’s 8th annual one-night, public exhibition of light-based art and performance.
Proposals for InLight Richmond 2015 should involve, be inspired by, investigate, or interpret themes of light, from light as medium to light as concept. (Existing work, as well as proposals for new projects, will be considered.) 1708 Gallery also encourages artists to propose projects that respond directly to the site.
InLight Richmond 2015 will take place on the grounds of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts including the E. Claiborne and Lora Robins Sculpture Garden. Potential sites for installations and performances include pathways, walls, sidewalks, green spaces, trees, benches, building facades, and more. You may propose a specific site for both pre-existing and site-responsive works. Please indicate if your work is site-specific on your entry form. 1708 Gallery reserves the right to make final assignments
Applications are due at midnight, May 31st, 2015 with a $30 application fee. Each selected work will receive a $300 honorarium and the opportunity to recieve $2000 in additional prizes. More information and the application can be found at http://www.1708gallery.org/inlight/apply.html
