Washington DC JCC Request for Artist's Proposals

 

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR ARTISTIC TREATMENT  •  Proposals Due: June 30, 2014

 

The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington is relocating to new headquarters space at 6101 Executive Boulevard, North Bethesda, MD by September 1, 2014. This will be Federation’s first move in over 25 years, and represents a fresh and valuable opportunity to energize and connect with all segments of the Jewish community and the wider community of which it is a part.

With this move, we hope to convey that Federation is a place that truly belongs to all Jews – young and old, long-time supporters and the newly involved, people who connect in traditional and non-traditional ways. The move corresponds with the launch of a new Federation messaging campaign, “Make It Yours,” which will encourage the entire community to connect with the Federation and community in personally meaningful ways.

The Federation is seeking artist proposals to create an iconic and welcoming work of art on the three-story, north wall of the entrance foyer of the building (dimensions 20' wide and 32' high). The commissioned piece will be the focal point of the entrance lobby, a work of art that creates an emotional response with each visit, a “wow,” a feeling that “this is my Federation and my community.”

CALL FOR PAPERS - Your Personal Exodus?

 Call for Papers

 
What does a personal exodus mean to you? 
 
The dictionary defines exodus it in this way:
 
Exodus: ex·o·dus, [ek-suh-duhs]
n.
  1. the act or an instance of going out; a departure or emigration, usually of a large number of people: the summer exodus to the country and shore.

syn.:
departure, evacuation, exit, flight, going out, leaving, migration, retirement, retreat, withdrawal  

I am looking for papers about ones' personal exodus, be it the time you moved out of your parents' house, or perhaps when you made a departure from your current artistic process. It does not have to be the time you left your war-torn country and came to America, but that works too.
 
This is for my art installation in 2015, which may show more than once, so I am sorry that I will not be able to return your submissions, but I promise to take very good care of them as they will be displayed in the exhibition(s). Please write, draw, collage, type, photograph, or any medium you see fit, on one side of an 8.5 x 11 inch (or smaller) piece of paper, and mail them to:
 
Carol Es
P.O. Box 32114
Los Angeles, CA 90032

You can make more than one if you want, too.
 
Thank you very much in advance! Photos of the installation will eventually be displayed on ExodusJosuaTree.com

......................

A N   I N V I T A T I O N   F R O M   A S Y L U M   A R T S

 

Dear Friends,

 

We’re excited to announce the second annual Asylum Arts: International Jewish Artist Retreat, a Schusterman Connection Point! We will be bringing together 65 multi-disciplinary emerging Jewish artists from around the world, at the idyllic Garrison Institute, from March 23-26, 2014.    Participants will have the opportunity to learn from industry professionals, working artists, and from each other. Master classes and seminars will be led by professionals from leading arts organizations, empowering emerging artists with the professional skills necessary for a more successful long-term career in the arts. Participants will explore Jewish themes and ideas, and have the opportunity to share and discuss their own work. We hope that by bringing together a global community of emerging Jewish artists, new art and relationships will be fostered that cross national boundaries and artistic mediums.

This year, we're pleased to offer grants to participants for ideas sparked during the retreat!

Click here for a video preview of what to expect this year.

 

Who we're looking for: We’re looking for professional artists who are actively working in their artistic discipline, with at least two years of professional experience creating and disseminating their art. In order to best fit the developmental nature of this retreat, we are looking for artists in the early-mid stages of their careers, ages 22 to 39, and they need to have demonstrated a significant commitment to their artistic discipline. Lastly, we are looking for art-creators, rather than interpreters of the work of others.

We’re invested in bring together an international group of artists, and so travel stipends are available to get to NYC!

 

Applications are now open! We will be accepting applications until 11:59 pm EST on Wednesday, December 11th. Apply yourself, or spread the word to artists you think would be a good fit.

Follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and check out our website for more details, and to submit an application.

 

Hope to see you there!  –  The Asylum Team
