NEW CALL FOR ENTRIES:
36 studios- part 1
Call For Entries: WPA announces 36 Studios - Part 1, a series of studio visits with Mera Rubell of the Rubell Family Collection.
Deadline: Sunday, December 6, 2009 at midnight
The Rubell Family Collection is one of the leading collections of contemporary art in the world. Started in 1964, soon after Don and Mera Rubell were married, the Rubell Family Collection operates as a non-profit organization based in Miami where it presents rotating, curated exhibitions and hosts a variety of educational and community outreach programs.
Mera Rubell will be one of eight esteemed curators selecting works for Cream, the WPA 2010 Art Auction Exhibition. Building upon the popular Experimental Video Series at the Rubells' Capitol Skyline Hotel, Rubell has determined to see the work of as many DC-area artists as possible and select up to twelve to be included in the WPA exhibition and auction. Her visits to DC are typically 36 hours long, and she has devoted her next trip to this project.
For 36 Studios - Part 1, Mera Rubell and a team of curators and writers will conduct 36 studio visits over the course of 36 straight hours. Each studio visit will last approximately 15-20 minutes and will take place starting at 5:00am on Saturday, December 12 and continuing until 5:00pm on Sunday, December 13.
Artists will apply to participate and will be chosen at random to have the opportunity to meet and present their work. The work chosen will be included in WPA's annual Art Auction Exhibition, January 30 through March 6, 2009 at the American University Art Museum at the Katzen Arts Center...
