6x6x2020 Call for Art

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, April 11, 2020

SPECIAL MESSAGE: The health and safety of Rochester Contemporary’s visitors, staff, and supporters is their top priority. RoCo remains temporarily closed to the public. Many people are finding themselves with more time at home, and some of you are contacting them with questions and ideas about 6×6. 6×6 is 100% a go. As always, RoCo invites you to participate and share your process or finished art on social media with #RoCo6x6. **During this time they ask that you mail your artworks via USPS as this will be delivered to the facility even when we are not open. They’re working on an artwork drop-off station to accommodate larger and fragile artworks while they are closed. They may have to make some adjustments to 6×6 but, you bet it’s happening!

6×6 is an international phenomenon of thousands of artworks from all over the world and it’s completely free to enter. Simply fill out an entry form and mail or deliver your 6-inch by 6-inch artwork to Rochester Contemporary Art Center by ‪April 11 or postmarked April 10. 6×6 is an accessible way for international artists to participate in a fun exhibition here in the States without a lot of commitment or restrictions! 

6×6 is hosted by Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo), a small, non-profit art center in Rochester, NY! This annual exhibition 6×6, raises critical funds needed to pay artists, maintain our building and administer contemporary art programming to our community this coming year! With just one, simple artwork you can help our mission to provide unique encounters for audiences and extraordinary opportunities for artists. Learn more about 6×6 at roco6x6.org and on social media using #roco6x6 and @roco137.
