CALL FOR OUTDOOR PUBLIC ART PROJECT PROPOSALS

Weave Wall on Tour Exhibit

The National Women’s Hall of Fame
invites artists in all appropriate mediums to submit proposals for an outdoor public art project that will travel to schools, festivals, and other public gatherings to support our mission of “Showcasing great women… Inspiring all!”
Project Background and Goals The National Women’s Hall of Fame is seeking an imaginative design that brings one of our most popular exhibits – the Weave Wall – to schools and public venues throughout the region.


The Weave Wall exhibit is an homage to the Hall’s new home at the Seneca Knitting Mill, an historic knitting factory. The exhibit is not only a fun, interactive opportunity for guests, but also serves a data gathering tool for the Hall. On the Weave Wall, visitors respond to questions about themselves, their visit, and their interests by taking a string of yarn and wrapping it around individual pegs that correspond to their answers. Each visitor’s responses overlap with one another and, eventually, their stories are woven together – allowing us to reinforce everyone’s role in creating the fabric of society.


The Weave Wall on Tour will travel with us to schools, festivals, and any public venues. Our goal is to bring our galleries to life and connect with our local communities. By taking the Weave Wall on Tour to free accessible events throughout the region and state, we will be able to effectively engage with and gather community data from audiences that we would not be able to reach otherwise.


We are seeking a creative partner to help to bring this concept to life!
The chosen work will:

• Connect to the theme of “weaving yourself into the National Women’s Hall of Fame”
• Embody the goals of promoting community and diversity
• Be lightweight and easy enough for a single individual to set up and break down
• Have flexibility to work in a variety of environments ranging from classrooms to festivals
• Have an expected lifespan of two years with minimal need for repairs and maintenance


Work Plan

The Weave Wall on Tour will debut at Induction Weekend 2022 (September 23-25, 2022). The Induction Festival will be a town-wide celebration of the Induction of nine incredible women through music, communal art, local food and drink, and fireworks.

After Induction Weekend we plan to utilize the Weave Wall on Tour between September 2022 and June 2023 at school visits, networking events, and other Hall programs, including our anticipated celebrations of the 175th Anniversary of the first Women’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls next year.


Budget

A commission of up to $4,000 is available for the chosen artist to create their work. Artists are required to provide all supplies, materials, and labor to complete the work (and any necessary insurances). Artists should detail what assistance or materials are provided by his/her/theirself and what may be required or needed by the National Women’s Hall of Fame or others in their proposal (if applicable).


Timeline

Deadline to Submit: 5 pm on Friday, July 8

Friday, July 15: Selection of Artist

Friday, September 2: Completed and delivered work


Proposals should include:

• A description of the work including concept, materials, and dimensions;
• A budget breaking out artist fees, supplies and materials, and any other costs associated with the creation of the work;
• Links to examples of past work; and
• Contact information (including email, phone, and address).

Questions and proposals should be sent electronically to admin@womenofthehall.org with the subject line ‘Weave Wall on Tour.’

Staff will review proposals for their eligibility and appropriateness for the project. Priority consideration will be given to artists representing marginalized communities, including BIPOC and LGBTQ+ identifying individuals.

CALL FOR ARTISTS

Open call for Submissions by the Cherry Gallery in Ithaca, NY - Local Futurities, a satellite exhibition in collaboration with the 2022 Cornell Biennial FUTURIES UNCERTAIN, sponsored by the Cornell Council for the Arts. Exhibition dates; September 2--October 23, 2022; APPLICATIONS DUE WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1, 2022 AT MIDNIGHT.

Welcoming Submissions: How might art activate empowering futurities that are both radically local and radically international?

The Cherry Arts’ “Local Futurities” is a multimedia satellite exhibition for local and regional artists, in collaboration with the 2022 Cornell Biennial “Futurities, Uncertain”. Inviting celebratory imaginations and enactments of “Futurities, Uncertain” in line with this year’s Cornell Biennial theme, Cherry’s “Local Futurities” is an artistic call, and a response, to the question of how artistic imaginaries might stage the potential of multiple futurities. “Local Futurities” asks how the arts can render the colonial past and the multinational present uncertain on local and translocal levels. Inspired by global artistic response to technological and biopolitical oppressions and possibilities, how can artistic futurities imagine cultural transformation?

What do these futures look like beyond the singular or utopic? An exchange of artistic projects across the disciplines might animate the future differently. Projects might ponder future blends of human, animal, and material just as they might reflect on fluid temporal movements between past, present, and future. How might multiple artistic practices embrace the uncertainty of futurities to activate creativity, thought, and social justice anew?

Eligibility and Notes

  • Artists based in the following four regions are eligible to apply:

(esd.ny.gov/file/esd-regional-mapjpg) Western New York, Finger Lakes, Southern Tier, Central NY

  • If selected, the artist must be willing and able to transport their work to Ithaca and back for the exhibition dates of Sept 2–October 23, 2022. We will offer logistical support with this to the extent possible.
  • Artists will provide equipment for the exhibition of their sound, film, or other time-based media art.
  • Students are not eligible to apply.
  • A $15 entry fee is to be paid at bit.ly/localfuturities. Please save your payment receipt as a PDF—you will be required to attach it to your application.
  • Exhibited artists will be compensated with stipends in excess of wageforwork.com recommendations for an organization of our size. These stipends vary according to number of artists exhibited in the show.
  • Application form can be accessed at: bit.ly/LocalFuturities

Decisions

After submissions are received (June 1, 2022), selections will be made via a two-step review process conducted by Cherry Arts staff and Cornell Biennial staff and faculty.

 “We added the Community Music Residency this year in memory of two long-time volunteers in the KAC live music program, Ginger Parker and Tom Bell,” says Damhnait McHugh, president of the Kirkland Art Center board. “They both understood the way music can bring communities together, and we’re looking forward to continuing that legacy by offering time, space, and funds for performing musicians to develop their craft.”

All selected artists will stay at the Garret and work in a studio space four doors down at the Kirkland Art Center.

“These programs began as a response to the time constraints and barriers to institutional support that emerging artists often face, and we try to improve them a little every year” says Nora Revenaugh, co-owner of The Garret on the Green and member of local band The Boom Chickens. “Having a day job or caregiving responsibilities keeps so many talented artists out of programs that require longer stays or a large financial commitment, and these short, funded residencies are designed with those artists in mind.”

Last year’s residents received a warm welcome from the village of Clinton as well, with donated meals and gifts from Nola’s, The Cremeria, Utica Coffee, The Compound, and Almost Local. 

A full list of previous artist residents and a link to the application is available at www.kacny.org/residency2022.
