Call for Artwork for the Mayors’ Offices!
Once again, our city and county mayors have asked the Arts & Culture Alliance to display the artwork of our INDIVIDUAL members on the sixth floor of the City County Building in downtown Knoxville. We will be honored to include your work if possible and hope you will be interested in participating! (Not a member? Join now!)
Artwork will be displayed in two places: 1) in the office and anteroom of City Mayor Madeline Rogero, and 2) in the hallway outside of County Mayor Tim Burchett’s offices. Artwork will remain on display for approximately SIX MONTHS from November 2016 through May 2017.
Please note: The works comprising these exhibitions are put together in order to build two cohesive shows. We do not impose a particular theme or color-scheme, but we do include works that look best together as a whole and that mutually flatter one another as well as their surroundings. That may mean that one, two, or no pieces of any particular artist ends up being included.
Please bring up to two original works to our office at the Emporium during one of these times:
Monday, November 7, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Tuesday, November 8, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
2-D works must be wired to hang. Please limit works to 30 lbs or less in weight and 48″ on the longest side. There is no fee to participate for current individual members.
Please prep work by including your name and artwork title on both the back of the piece as well as on a scrap piece of paper taped to the FRONT of your work. This will help with minimizing handling during installation.
Artwork will be installed on Thursday, November 10.
Artwork currently on exhibition (as well as artwork that is submitted but not included in the new exhibition) will be brought back to the Alliance offices at the Emporium and be may picked up from our office on Friday, November 11 or any day thereafter during our public hours of Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
