Art of Solidarity: Call for Art

October 30 @ 12:00 am - December 1 @ 12:00 am

Solidarity Space and I-House Davis are seeking digital artwork to be placed at the Solidarity Space Davis in Central Park. We will design selected pieces into a vinyl wrap collage and install them at the Solidarity Space on the concrete base of the existing green, metal surrounding. This call is open to hobbyists, doodlers, poets, photographers, amateurs, professional artists, and anyone in between. Artwork can be created digitally or can be photographs of non-digital art.

Create artwork in response to these questions:

  • What does Solidarity Space mean to you?
  • What does Black and Brown joy look like?
  • What does an antiracist future look like in the City of Davis?

Selection Process:

A curatorial committee will select up to 10 pieces submitted online. The artists of selected pieces will receive an honorarium of $100. We will also display artwork at the Solidarity Space, online on the I-House website, and possibly in a future art exhibit at I-House Davis.

The committee will evaluate artwork based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance and responsiveness to the Solidarity Space mission and purpose
  • Visual content and aesthetic spirit.

This temporary exhibit will also inform the process of creating a permanent, public artwork at the Solidarity Space. We highly encourage BIPOC artists to submit pieces.

This will not be a blind submission process. Because the Solidarity Space seeks to uplift the perspectives of the BIPOC community, we will consider the identities of artists to ensure that selected artwork represents the BIPOC community as well as white allyship and other perspectives.

Submit your artwork here: [https://form.asana.com/?k=NpwBbFMkvQfrw31eWocRmQ&d=1130715773561961]

Timeline:

  • Submission Deadline: December 1, 2021
  • Notification of Selection: December 15, 2021
  • Artwork installation and celebration:  TBD, weather dependent

Art creation and curation is a subjective process. The selection of the artwork is at the discretion of the committee.
