Art on the Porch Proposals
Sulfur Studios + Alair Homes are excited to announce their collaboration on a new public art project, Art on the Porch!
Local artists are invited to submit proposals for projects to be displayed on the porch of Alair Homes’ Savannah office on the corner of Drayton and 41st street for November First Friday. The theme of the project is “Home” but artists are encouraged to take a broad interpretation of this concept.
The project will be displayed for the evening of November 1st, 2019, and depending on the nature of the work, it may remain on display throughout the month of November.
Work in any media will be considered, but work will be displayed outdoors and the effects of weather over the duration of the project should be taken into consideration. Sculptural and installation projects are specifically encouraged. Performance and video projection are also possible. Work may be intended to be viewed from street level and/or from the porch itself. Collaborative teams are welcome to apply, but one application should be submitted for the team.
Work may be hung from the porch ceiling or the wood siding, but all holes created for installation must be easily patchable.
A $500.00 stipend will be given to the selected artist to help cover the cost of producing the project. The artist will also be invited to a special preview party for industry professionals from 5-6p.m on November 1st.
There is no fee to apply for this opportunity. Sulfur Studios will handle all sales and retain a 30% commission. Work does not have to be for sale to be considered.
