Call for Artist

Deadline June 17, 2019

Call for Artist(s)

Elisabeth Jones Art Center is sponsoring a show on July 3rd that celebrates the Neighborhood Associations of Portland. At some point they may not exist because of current City policy trends. Our show aims to promote the many positive impacts our Neighborhood Associations have had over the past several decades.

We feel that one of the things that Neighborhood Associations offer is the importance of Place and Community. The process is raw democracy in action: lovely and very unique to Portland.

We are looking for an artist (or group of artists) to create an interactive piece that evokes the work of Portland’s Neighborhood Associations. A minimum of twenty Neighborhood Associations will need to be involved in the completed piece.

We will devote space in our gallery for this artwork, approximately 600 – 800 square feet, with 12 – 16 feet from floor to ceiling.

Stipend: $1000

To be considered, please submit a link to your work.

Deadline: June 17th
