Call for Artists: Your Place Squared: Community Art Project

Date/Time

Jan 2, 2019 to Mar 1, 2019
10:00 AM until 05:00 PM

Description

The Bruce Museum is organizing an exhibition of small artworks created entirely by the public for the public. We invite art lovers of all ages, interests, and abilities to submit a depiction of “your place” as part of this new community art project.

Based on the popular 2012 exhibition of self-portraits, Your Face Squared, the Bruce now asks participants to turn to the landscape for creative inspiration and to be a part of Your Place Squared: A Community Art Project.

The subjects of Your Place Squared can be a favorite scene or setting -- your home, a room, or any space that you treasure as your own. The artworks can be created in any medium, including writing, drawing, painting, photography, and collage. The criteria for display include art that: must be original and anonymous, must be 6 inches by 6 inches in size and no thicker than 3 inches, and cannot be toxic or harmful. A signed consent/waiver form must accompany each piece, and there is a limit of 10 submissions per individual.

 

The Museum will accept artworks from January 2 through March 1, 2019, with submitted artwork on view in the Museum’s Bantle Lecture Gallery from March 9 through June 2, 2019. During the exhibition visitors can also create additional pieces in the gallery, which will be added to the show. More information about the exhibition and the consent form for submissions is available at brucemuseum.org and at the Museum’s Visitor Services desk.
