artist call: Mobile art gallery
CulturalDC is seeking artists of all kinds to submit new and engaging concepts for our Mobile Art Gallery. After an extremely successful inaugural year of delivering art directly to people’s doorsteps, we are excited to continue building on the momentum of DC’s first moveable artspace.
CulturalDC provides a platform for artists to obtain exposure with our network of arts organizations, audiences, and real estate developers. Artists will receive a stipend. CulturalDC staff also provides critical feedback as exhibitions are in development.
Priority is given to artists and organizations who have not received program support from CulturalDC.
CulturalDC will consider applications based upon the following criteria:
Unexpected and experimental use of the space
Engagement of community and relationship to DC’s cultural landscape
Artistic merit of the proposed project
Artist or organizational experience
Capacity to fully execute proposed exhibition
Viability of the project
Suitability to the mission of CulturalDC (innovative concept, theme, and work)
