This seems like a great opportunity. I'm curious about a couple of things:

How many shows will be in this cycle?

Who will be judging the submissions?

Posted by: melia [TypeKey Profile Page] at June 29, 2007 10:41 AM

It is Ruthann's call. She's planning 6 week shows (meaning 8 shows at most) and I suspect that the # that fall into this series of funded installation shows is entirely dependent on the # of submissions she feels strongly about.

Dear Port,
OK....junior high math....
(8X7,000)+(8X1,000)=$64,000
$64,000!!!!!
There must be many $64,000 questions.
....and only two comments!!
I know it's not about the money but ......
OMG.

Thanks
Chris Brown.

Well this lil scoop has netted a huge # of hits so I suspect that people stopped talking and started doing something. My email inbox was pretty full.

Money makes people act real funny and talk is cheap. Also, the amount of asskissing Ruthann is being subjected to is predictably funny.

The key to this project is picking the right artists... this city is an installation art haven but most artists who want to do large scale installations end up having to do them in warehouse shows of their own devising... The NAAU opportunity steps into the old role that Haze had and adds something to the equation.
