Night Lights is seeking artists to apply for the 2016-2017 season to present new or recently developed works. The call is open to individual artists, collectives or curators in Oregon to submit works to be shown in October, November, or February. Submissions of recently developed works will receive an honorarium of $1,000. The program is also providing one additional opportunity to create new work through an Artist Residency with Portland Community Media (PCM) for the March 2017 installation of Night Lights. This artist will receive an honorarium of $5,000 to complete a new work to be shown during that month.
Night Lights is a monthly time-based public art event that promotes digital media, urban intervention, and technological innovation. On the First Thursdays of October through April, select artists are able to showcase their work on the North Wall of the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) Offices (411 NW Park Ave, Portland, OR) and claim public space for their artistic practice. Past projects have included large scale digital media projections, live performance of dance and sound, and collective showings by students and professional artists alike. This is a collaboration between Regional Arts & Culture Council and Portland Community Media.
Deadline for submissions is August 8, 2016. Proposals can be submitted HERE.
For more information about the submission process, please attend our Information Session on Thursday July 28, 6 p.m. at Metro East Community Media, 829 NE 8th Street, Gresham OR 97030. Contact Salvador Mayoral IV firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
