The City of Philadelphia’s Percent for Art Program, through the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE) announces an $80,000 competition to commission a site-specific artwork for the new City Archives facility. This commission is part of the $4 million City Archive relocation project by the City of Philadelphia Department of Records.
The City Archives serves as the permanent repository for the City’s extensive collection of local historical and cultural records. The enormous collection uniquely documents Philadelphia’s history through objects, documents, rare maps, photographs, architectural plans, tax records, and much more. Some treasures of the collection include: the original 1701 William Penn City of Philadelphia Charter; the first volume of the City Council Minutes, from 1704; original signatures of Benjamin Franklin; and a variety of documents, maps, and images dating from the 18th century.

2016 Artist Travel Prize recipient Stephen Towns

Application deadline – Monday, July 31, 2017

The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. (BOPA) is proud to announce the second edition of the Municipal Art Society of Baltimore City Artist Travel Prize, sponsored by the Municipal Art Society of Baltimore City (MASOB). The Municipal Art Society of Baltimore was founded in 1899 as part of the City Beautiful movement. It is one of only two remaining societies to be operating under its original charter “to provide sculptural and pictorial decoration and ornaments for the public buildings, streets and open spaces in the City of Baltimore, and to help generally beautify the City.” Artistic contributions to the City span more than one hundred years. In 2016 the MASOB embarked on a path to provide new opportunities to Baltimore artists and art places within the City. This prize will award $6,000 to a visual artist or visual artist collaborators, living in Baltimore City. Successful proposals will be selected from submissions that clearly articulate the artist’s reason for travel and how it relates to their work, along with support materials. The $6,000 prize is intended to function as funding for travel essential to an artist’s studio practice that an artist may not otherwise be able to afford.

Metro Gallery is currently seeking window display artists. We are interested in changing our display seasonally and are opening up the submission process. Artists will be compensated for their work/time. Our window display is right on North Charles street and has very heavy foot traffic. Please email if you are interested!

VisArts Galleries invites your students to apply for NextGen 4.0 in our Kaplan Gallery. NextGen features aspiring 17 to 27-year-old local artists who have little to no experience exhibiting their work in a professional gallery. NextGen offers these artists an opportunity to bring their artwork to the public and to experience this process. The exhibition was developed to address this demographic of artists which may include high school students, undergraduate students or recent grads who are uncertain about how to proceed with a career in art or what it takes to be an artist.

The process to apply for an exhibition can be intimidating with little or no experience. Included in our application site are a number of resources to help your student create a competitive application and to develop their professional practices as an artist.

We hope that you will encourage your students to apply to NextGen 4.0. The application deadline is June 1, 2017, 11:59 PM and the exhibition will take place July 21– August 20th at VisArts in Rockville, Maryland. You can find the application and more details on our website:
