The City of San José Public Art Program (CA), National Request for Qualifications: Market St./San Pedro Parking Garage Façade Enhancement

Deadline: February 20th, 2018, 11:59pm MST

The City of San José Public Art Program in conjunction with the City of San José Department of Transportation’s Parking and Downtown Operations Division are seeking an experienced artist or artist-led team to develop an artwork that addresses the exterior façade of the Market/San Pedro Street Parking Garage in downtown San José. The garage is a prominent facility in San Jose’s downtown core and adjacent to the vibrant San Pedro Square commercial district, a popular destination for dining, retail and other activities day and night. The goal is for an enhancement that has a visual presence 24 hours a day.

Project Budget: The total project budget is $600,000. for design, fabrication and installation, and a mandatory contingency.

As public art, this creative placemaking project is part of San José’s ongoing Illuminating Downtown program and is intended to strengthen the neighborhood identity in part through the creative use of illumination. Key goals for this project include: 1) to enhance the facility, and the vibrancy and character of the area, and enliven the streetscape through use of illumination and other possible elements; 2) to also increase safety, visibility, and to encourage active use of the parking facility at all hours; and, 3) engage residents, business owners and visitors in this vibrant downtown district and, where relevant, in participatory aspects of the design process.

In consideration of the use of illumination and night time activation in the project, the artist or artist team needs to have experience in the design, programming and operation of energy-efficient lighting effects and systems, appropriate to the nature and scale of this project. Design that is sustainable and maintainable will be an important consideration.

Interested artists shall submit qualifications to design, fabricate and install an artwork that provides visual enhancements and lighting elements which will serve to transform the parking garage into a more inviting, and more interesting structure within the pedestrian environment.

Eligibility:  This opportunity is open to individual artists or artist-led teams working and living in the United States. All applicants must be at least 18 years of age, have all necessary documentation and permits to work in the United States at the time of submittal of qualifications. If submitting as a team, a professional artist must be the lead team member.

International Call for Applicants: Residency 108 (NY), Spring 2018, with food stipend

108International Call for Applicants: Residency 108 (NY), Spring 2018, with food stipend

Deadline: February 26th, 2018

Spring 2018 Residency Dates: April 30th – May 28th, 2018.

From their call: Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual.

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians. Frequent visitors include coyotes, deer and wild turkeys. The barn is home to chickens, sheep, horses, goats, cats, a cow and a pig. There is also a private residence on the property, which is not available for use by residents.

There is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.

The Painting Center (NY), Call for Entries: JuxtaPositions

The Painting Center (NY), Call for Entries: JuxtaPositions

Deadline: May 10th, 2018

From their call: The Painting Center, an artist-run gallery in Chelsea, announces a call for entries for its juried summer exhibition JuxtaPositions. We invite artists of all stripes to submit work that excites by forging new connections, and surprises by discovering unexpected juxtapositions.

Creativity isn’t only about making entirely new things out of whole cloth. The creative process can involve seeing old things in new contexts; joining things that previously seemed completely unrelated; or turning conventions, tropes and ideas upside down and inside out. Sometimes, these juxtapositions are humorous; sometimes, they are enigmatic, or striking; sometimes, they are shocking. High and low, serious and funny, real and fake, observed and invented, political and personal…these are all choices an artist can make in his or her work…but they aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive.

In a culture that is stuffed full of imagery, icons, argument, products, brands and just plain junk, can we invent something new by mining, reframing, re-contextualizing, and re-conceiving some of the ideas and objects that make up the cultural moment in which we live?

JuxtaPositions is open to all media. Entry fee.

Exhibition Dates: June 19th – July 14th, 2018

From their call: The Festival is seeking to work with artists in a wide range of artistic media: performance, sound, sculpture, video, augmented reality, virtual reality, painting, drawing, and socially engaged work. A goal of the festival is to foster a diverse platform of ideas and media – ultimately showcasing new visual and narrative experiences that are previously “impossible”. We are interested in activation and aim to present an experience for the viewer that will inspire.

Artists are asked to submit project proposals for review. Accepted projects will be awarded a stipend of $2,500. Additional project costs will be covered on an as needed basis. At this time we can not pay for travel.

We’re looking for artists to push the boundaries and manifest something truly beautiful, whimsical and inspiring for the audience. Our goal is to create a level of engagement and immersion that surpasses a conventional art exhibition.

Festival Format – June 8th, 9th and 10th, 2018

The term “festival” is used to broaden the definition of our art presentation. The intent is to marry art and technology in an exciting display and we invite artists to challenge their ideas and skills while at the same time giving careful consideration to the audience.

Arts/Industry has been doing something remarkable for over 40 years—connecting artists with the resources, technology, and materials of Kohler Co., and providing a place to explore new ideas, processes, and perspectives. Artists from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.

Each year up to 12 artists are selected for residencies in the Pottery and/or Foundry areas of the factory through a competitive jury process. No experience with clay or cast metal is required, just an interest in pursuing a new body of work and being open to new ideas. Residencies run three months in length.

Artists-in-residence receive 24-hour access to studio space, materials, use of equipment, technical assistance, photographic services, housing, round-trip transportation, and a modest weekly stipend.

  • A résumé/CV (3 pages maximum)
  • A written project proposal (250 words or less)

International Call for Applicants: Franklin Furnace Fund (NY) 2018 – 2019

International Call for Applicants: Franklin Furnace Fund (NY) 2018 – 2019

Deadline: April 1st, 2018

From their call: The Franklin Furnace Fund awards grants annually to emerging artists to enable them to produce major performance art works in New York. Grants range from between $2,000 and $10,000 based on the peer review panel allocation of funding received by the Franklin Furnace.

Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. We believe this peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work. Every year the panel changes, as do the definitions of “emerging artist” and “performance art.” So if at first you don’t succeed, please try again.

The Franklin Furnace Fund 2018 – 2019 is supported by Jerome Foundation and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Artists supported by funding from Jerome Foundation must live in the five boroughs of New York City or the state of Minnesota.

Artists from all over the world are encouraged to apply; however, artists selected by the panel are expected to present their work in New York.  Full-time students are ineligible.

Note: Before you can access the Franklin Furnace Fund 2018 – 2019 application form, you must first complete a brief questionnaire that will help determine your eligibility. If eligibility is confirmed, you will be provided with a link to the online application.
