The Arts Partnership (TAP) has an open call for Metro-based and near-regional artists interested in participating in ArtWORKS, a program that fosters creativity and mindfulness by placing art in the public realm (businesses, offices, hospitals, airports and more). Participating artists have the opportunity to reach and interact with an audience that is art-appreciative but not necessarily art-articulate.
The focus of the program is primarily on solo exhibitions for visual artists working in 2-D. However, we also are looking for performing artists, musicians, writers, poets and artisans who could lead an employee engagement activity for those businesses and corporations interested in deepening their commitment to creativity in the workplace.
Artists must be based in the Metro area or surrounding region.
For visual artists:
For other than visual artists:
Artists will receive a notification from The Arts Partnership staff with proposed dates for an ArtWORKS exhibit and/or employee engagement activity. The Arts Partnership staff will then schedule a time to meet with the artist to discuss details.
Artists are responsible for delivering the work to the ArtWORKS location for installation and collecting it after the exhibition period. No less than two weeks prior to the exhibition date, the artist will provide The Arts Partnership with images of each included artwork, a pricelist, and a short artist statement and bio.
All sales inquiries are made directly to the artist; neither the participating company nor The Arts Partnership receives a commission for the sale of artwork.
At the end of the exhibition period, The Arts Partnership issues each artist an honorarium as appreciation for their participation:
ArtWORKS Exhibit Level:
$75 for a 3-month solo exhibit of 8-12 artworks
ArtWORKS Engagement Level:
$100 for a 4-month solo exhibit of 8-12 artworks
$175 for an artist talk and leading an employee engagement activity
The stipend is only one benefit of participating in this program. If selected to participate, the artist will receive:
