Barnes + Mural Arts: Philly Artists Open Call – Let’s Connect
This Deadline Expired: Monday, April 30, 2018
During the Let’s Connect open call, artists throughout Philadelphia will be given free access to the Barnes and asked to select a work of art in the collection to use as a departure point for creating their own work for submission. The newly produced work can respond to the selected piece in a number of ways—by addressing its historical origins, by proposing a new visual relationship in the tradition of Dr. Barnes, or by critiquing the Barnes method altogether.
The work submitted by artists will be displayed at the Barnes so that the public and a team of curators can select which four artists should be invited for a residency on-site in the Mural Arts Studio at the Barnes.
Artists selected are invited to a three-month residency in the Mural Arts Studio at the Barnes, provided a $1,000-per-month expense allowance, given come-and-go access to the Barnes, and asked to connect to the public by hosting open studio hours.
Let’s Connect is a project of the Barnes Foundation in partnership with Mural Arts Philadelphia.
