wintry opportunities

Triple Canopy is seeking proposals for projects in one of five areas: Research Work (to facilitate art-related research projects outside of academia), Internet as Material (to support emerging and mid-career artists who've never before made art specifically for the Web), Thinking Through Images (to "foster conversations about images and videos of cultural, political, and social relevance"), New Media Reporting (to provide journalists an outlet for in-depth, critical reports executed in multiple media), and New Programming (to support the development of exhibitions, panel discussions, performances, film screenings, and other public events that examine the intersection of culture, politics, and technology). They'll be sponsoring 10 total projects, and proposals are due February 15, 2010. Get way more info here.

The Oregon Arts Commission has announced a new public art opportunity at the Western Oregon University Health & Wellness Center. They're seeking proposals for site-specific work that promotes "healthy attitudes, a strong sense of place and the commonality of [the building's] diverse functions, physically and conceptually." The application deadline is January 29, 2010, and you can get the full scoop here.

NYC-based group Artists Wanted has announced "The Power of Self: An Image Competition" focused on self portraits. The juried winner will get either a huge cash prize or six months free rent at The Edge in NYC, and the public choice winner will also get a pretty good cash prize. Submissions are due January 14, 2010, and you can read all about it on their website.
