Theme:
For the 10th anniversary of Philadelphia’s celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month, the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE) is issuing a call for artists for works that incorporate or are inspired by instruments used in jazz. Although jazz can be played on any instrument, including the human voice, the most commonly used are saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass, drums, and guitar.

Artists are encouraged to use instrument parts or create new forms that draw from jazz instruments. Works can be either two or three-dimensional and include digital or sound art. Digital or sound elements must have proper equipment, including screen, speakers and headsets provided by the artist. All works must conform to the size limitations of the display case: 72″ height x 94″ length x 30″ depth.
