Call for Artists – Cross Pollination

Deadline Mid-May: Cross-pollination is defined as the influence or inspiration between diverse elements.
Cross-Pollination is our attempt to apply this idea to the vibrant and talented arts communities across the Philadelphia landscape. As a company, Swim Pony’s greatest moments of growth have been the result of melding our work with another’s medium. Creating across disciplines can be transformative, allowing creators to question assumptions about their artistic product and process in ways that working with one’s immediate peers may not. In short, cross-collaborative efforts help art forms evolve and grow. Rarely, however, are there structured experiences in which this can occur. Now, thanks to the generous support of the Knight Arts Challenge Philadelphia Swim Pony has the chance to engage a host of artists in such an opportunity.
If selected you’ll get a chance to explore with another amazing artist how your process currently works and ways that you can be inspired by what they do. You’ll get some cash and some space and a chance to share your research with the world.

Call for Artists – Belmar Arts

No deadline: The town of Belmar has asked the Arts Council to help lift the spirits of our residents, especially those near the beachfront. For the foreseeable future, large cement “Jersey” barriers will be blocking access to Ocean Avenue at A street. There are about 14 of these barriers on 7th to 20th Avenues, and we’d like to make them look fun and upbeat. Belmar Paints has donated 20 gallons of blue paint to use as a background color, and last week BAC members and a team of Brownies and Girl Scouts began painting several of the barriers blue. We are looking for volunteer artists who’d like to “adopt” and decorate a barrier. Hopefully this will be a chance for adults and children to take part in a fun community art event. If you have an idea, email belmararts@optonline.net and you can request or we’ll assign you a barricade. You can form a team on your own, or we can arrange for some volunteers to help you. Sketch out your idea so that your team can get right to work. You may want to draw the outlines of your design on your barrier, or at least share the sketch with your helpers. We have the blue background paint, but you will probably need to find some colors of exterior latex paint to use. (Check your leftovers, ask your friends, go to a paint store and beg some “Oops” paint) You’ll also want to bring brushes, plastic containers-anything else you’ll need to paint. Be creative! Think upbeat, positive, smile-inspiring! No holiday designs, since the residents of these streets will get to live with your creation till spring. posted 1-3-2013
