Artist Opportunities

Sorry that I haven't blogged about anything for a while but have been really busy. I have been commissioned to do an interactive piece for the London Museum of Art. And I don't mean London. Ohio. LOL In the process of interviewing for a steady 9-5 also. Freelance stuff if ok for supplementing my income but prefer a consistent check coming in.

Anyway, the Creative Challenge will continue next week. I want to allow other people to select the topics. Keep checking back for more info. This has been receiving a lot of praise. Actually got some business from the challenge. So artists, this is another way to get your work out there and build up your portfolio.

Speaking of getting yourself out there, here are some opportunities:

Grants Program
Asian American Arts Alliance, Association of Hispanic Arts, Harlem Arts Alliance, and Queens Council on the Arts - in partnership with the Bronx Council on the Arts and New York Foundation for the Arts - announce a new consortium effort, the Urban Artist Initiative / New York City (UAI/NYC). This Initiative will serve individual NYC artists of color and provide them with grants towards the development of new work in all disciplines. Grants, ranging from $250 to $2,500, will be awarded to support new works in all areas of visual, literary, and performing arts in the creation, development, and/or completion stages. In the first phase of this project, UAI/NYC will consider applications from individual artists of color of African, Asian, and Latino descent who reside in one of the five boroughs of New York City.

For Haptic, CAFKA invites proposals
for new or existing works that
engage with the theme and the environment in and around City Hall.
Works in all media will be considered including sculpture,
performance, video, audio, installation, photography, painting,
drawing and new media. Video artists are invited to submit work
relating to the theme. CAFKA.07 will create a video compilation to be
screened during the Forum. More here

If anyone is interested in collaborating, please let me know.
