Call for Submissions- Sloan Performing Arts Center

Ongoing Opportunity

The University of Rochester is requesting proposals for a site-specific original work of art to be installed within the newly constructed Sloan Performing Arts Center. We seek a work that takes inspiration from the natural landscape as well as the history of Rochester and its surrounding areas. Rochester has historically been a site for innovation and activism: a strong-hold of both the Abolitionist and Suffragist movements in the 19th century and the birthplace of Kodak, Xerox and other imaging technologies in the twentieth-century.

Slated to open in 2021, the Sloan Performing Arts Center overlooks the majestic Genesee River. This modern building is the first space to be specifically designed and dedicated to the performance of music, theatre, and dance and represents the university’s commitment to the performing arts as a priority area of study and outreach at this world-class research institution.

The main lobby of the Arts Center will showcase the awarded work on a 51’x 8’ wall expanse above the box office (8’ from the floor). The first phase of the submission process ends on May 15, 2020. A maximum of $30,000 will be awarded.
