Exhibition Opportunity and FUNDED Opportunity

Two interesting Calls for Artists were announced last week:

The Portland Art Center is looking to step up their programming.  Artists are invited to submit proposals for both the Main Gallery, located on the first floor, and the Light and Sound Gallery, located on the second.  Both galleries boast a selection committee of local notables including David Eckard and Cris Moss.  Now that PAC is seeming to settle into its home a bit, this should prove to be an exciting opportunity for many of the local up and comers.  Proposals for both galleries are due September 30. 

Submissions can be sent to:
Portland Art Center
(Indicate which gallery you are applying for)
PO Box 6082
Portland, Oregon 97228

Sadly, as of today, this information and details for applying are not listed on PAC’s web site.  Best bet will be to contact them directly. To do so, click here.

And now, on to the big money:

Hoyt Street Properties is seeking a professional Northwest artist to create permanent original art for the lobby of its newest condominium community- The Metropolitan.  Located in the heart of the Pearl District, The Metropolitan will stand at 19 stories and will house luxury condominiums, innovative live/work spaces, and street-level retail space.  The total budget for The Metropolitan lobby art project is $25,000. This sum must cover the winning artist’s fees and expenses associated with the project such as: travel, materials, production, installation, tools and supplies, scaffolding, and art movement. The Selection Panel will choose three finalists from the applicant base prior to determining the winning artist. The finalists will be asked to develop site-specific conceptual proposals for presentation to the Selection Panel.  These artists will receive a stipend of $3000 for their time and professional effort invested in developing, completing, and presenting proposals. Deadline for proposals is September 1. For more information, click here.

Thanks for posting this Hoyt Properties listing. After reading the criteria, it would seem that they are seeking painting and/or sculptural work. The proposal information seems to exclude media arts/photographic work. Though, this still would be a great opportunity for an artist or collaborative group. This will be a permanent installation of work (a purchase), so it is encouraging as many like buildings are popping up all over town, and I hope this will be a trend as the South Waterfront continues its development.

Sorry--Server problems. The submission forms are on the website now...www.portlandart.org.

Thank you for posting our news about The Metropolitan artist search. We are dedicated to engaging the creative community, as artists are essential in defining the uniqueness of Portland's Pearl District. We proudly incorporate art into many urban renewal projects and will uphold this strong commitment as we approach the second half of the 34-acre Hoyt Yards area. We encourage the concept as industry colleagues address other development zones; it is a great way to support artists while beautifying public and residential spaces. We look forward to receiving submissions from a wealth of talented Northwest artists!
