  • Call for Artists – The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program

    Deadline October 24: The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program is calling for artists to participate in a brand new program, Time Exchange. Time Exchange aims to create a novel residency structure in which for every hour artists spend working in their studio on their own projects, they will in turn provide an hour of volunteer effort and service back to the community.

    The program will consist of residencies lasting from one to three months, in newly-renovated storefront space at 4017 Lancaster Avenue, at the intersection of a diverse array of communities in West Philadelphia, and will provide artists with free studio space, a monthly stipend, and basic tools and supplies. In exchange, artists will provide skill and time-based resources for the surrounding communities, working on civic projects identified by residents and community-based organizations. Time Exchange offers an unparalleled opportunity for artists to explore the complex and necessary, if uncharted, role that responsible and accountable creative practice can play in a challenged and changing neighborhood.

    The deadline to apply for one of the artist residencies is Friday, October 24, 2014. More information and a downloadable application can be found at www.neighborhoodtime.exchange.

    Time Exchange, an initiative that will explore how embedded artistic practice can be a platform for social change, was conceived by the founders of Broken City Lab, who will be curating the residency in collaboration with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, the People’s Emergency Center, and the City of Philadelphia Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE).

    Time Exchange invites artists to engage their personal, autonomous artistic practice within the space of a studio, while also providing a platform for contributing to projects that directly and positively impact the surrounding community. In exchange for free studio space and the monthly stipend, artists will provide skill and time-based resources for the surrounding communities, working on civic projects suggested by residents and community-based organizations. Artists will also take part in open houses, exhibitions and similar events that will create connections with the community.

    Time Exchange will select a cohort of 12 artists for the residency. Six of these resident artist slots are reserved for local artists residing in Philadelphia, with an emphasis on the neighborhoods centered around Lancaster Avenue, including Mantua, Belmont, West Powelton, Saunders Park, and Mill Creek – a stipulation responsive to the significant population of artists living in PEC’s target area.

    The project sponsors – Broken City Lab, Mural Arts Program, People’s Emergency Center, and the OACCE – will offer curatorial and organizational support, as well as introductions to and opportunities for connection with neighborhood and community leaders.

    This project would not have been possible without the help of its sponsors: National Endowment for the Arts, Surdna Foundation, Kresge Foundation, City of Philadelphia, Bank of America, and Local Initiatives Support Corporation.

    Militarism refers to physically violent and coercive ways of settling conflict or maintaining control what we see in the everyday actions of armed security forces such as the military, militia, police, border enforcement, and school security.

    But do militarist policy decisions actually keep our communities safe and secure? What if we instead invested in the things that help communities, countries, and the globe thrive?

    Help us change the way people think about safety and security—and about the tools that should be used to achieve them.

    Create a poster-

    We need graphic artists, printmakers, street artists, comic artists, and other print-based visual artists who are interested in creating unique posters for a traveling exhibit.

    Submissions should explore:

    * A bio, maximum of 250 words

    Artists may submit more than one work.

    Terms and conditions-

    Jurors will select an initial set of work to be the core of a nationally traveling exhibit.

    AFSC will print and professionally display the chosen work in our traveling exhibit.

    AFSC will display the chosen work on our website and make it available for free digital download to the public.

    The exhibit website will identify each poster by artist, title of piece, short description, and your website if you so choose.

    By participating in this project, artists are donating their work to AFSC to use in the traveling exhibit, in digital replicas of the work available for download for free, in informational brochures, and on the web. Work will be fully credited to the artists, with contact information included.

    Selected artists will receive a $50 honorarium and a print copy of the catalog of the traveling exhibit.

  • Call for Artists – Pterodactyl

    Ongoing: A BIG ART SHOW is an art party where you get space to show your work in an unpretentious environment. It is one night, you set up and break down the day of. No judging, no applications, just tell us you’re coming and as long as we have space, we give you space. We need BANDS! Contact us if you know a band who might want to play a BIG ART SHOW or any Pterodactyl event! – The band picking is a little less all inclusive because we only have 3 or 4 spots a show. A few things for artists: You can sell your work if you want, but you don’t have to, and in fact you’ll probably have more fun if you don’t. This is an art show, not a flea market, you must have made the things you’re showing. You can sell your original artwork, bring prints of your work and anything hand made is fine, just use your judgement and err on the side of arty. We have nothing to do with you selling your work. We do not act as your art dealers or brokers. It’s free for you to be in the show, but if you sell something and want to donate Pterodactyl a few bucks nobody’s going to turn you down.
