Indoor Gallery Exhibition

DEADLINE: Monday, March 11, 2019

To be hosted in an indoor gallery space on or near the footprint of Artscape, moonstruck is an exhibition that will include artworks of all media whose subject matter or form demonstrate an affinity for the moon or any of its characteristics or properties. Artists are encouraged to think broadly, either literally or abstractly, in their interpretation of this exhibition topic. For example, work that takes inspiration from the ocean’s tides, or work about the symbolism of a crescent moon, or work about the political race to land on the moon, etc. would all be appropriate – the goal is an exhibition diverse in content.

Applications will be accepted that include already existing work and proposals for new work.

While this exhibition will be hosted in an indoor space, artists who typically work in a public realm are encouraged to also apply with either appropriately adapted work or documentation of an outdoor project that speaks to the exhibition theme.  Additionally, depending on space availability and applications received, multiple exhibitions may be realized. 

moonstruckis a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. (BOPA).  Artscape is produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. on behalf of the Baltimore Festival of the Arts, Inc.

Curator

Artwork included in moonstruck will be chosen by Artscape curator, Kim Domanski.  A 1996 MFA graduate of MICA’s multidisciplinary Mount Royal School of Art, Kim has curated many gallery based and public art exhibitions during her more than decade long tenure at BOPA.

Please see our website for additional opportunities for artists working in the visual and performing arts: www.artscape.org.

Guidelines

1. There are no geographic restrictions for application.

2. Artists 18 years and older are eligible to apply.

3.  Artists will be required to drop-off and pick-up their works for this exhibition, or provide shipment to the exhibition space. Artists who will not be available to complete this themselves due to another obligation should make every effort to make other arrangements with a friend, colleague or family member.  BOPA does not have the ability to transport artwork.

4.  Artwork will be insured while it is in BOPA’s possession during installation, exhibition, and deinstallation periods. Artwork dropped off before the “artwork drop-off” time period or picked up after the “artwork pick-up” time period that is determined once a gallery space is secured, is done so at the artist’s risk.  Artwork will not be insured beyond listed installation, exhibition, and deinstallation periods.  

5. BOPA reserves the right to reproduce images of selected artwork for printed or internet
