<![CDATA[Art Bank Program Call for Artists]]> Found: submissions, submission, deadline, awarded, award

For many years, I have been a member of the advisory panel that recommends to the City of Washington which art to acquire for its city collection via its ART BANK program.

I am always shocked how few submissions we get each year! And the artists who "know about it" keep it up every year to the point that by now, there are artists with almost twenty works of art in the collection of the District of Columbia!

Interested?

In support of local visual artists, District art galleries, and art nonprofit organizations, CAH acquires fine art. The ongoing annual acquisition of art from metropolitan artists becomes a part of the Art Bank Collection. CAH manages artwork in the collection. It is then loaned to District Government agencies for display in public areas and offices of government buildings. The Art Bank Collection, which started in 1986, has nearly 3,000 artworks.

The Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) requests applications from qualified artists and District nonprofit art galleries or organizations for its Fiscal Year 2025 Art Bank Program. Award amounts vary but eligible individual applicants may be awarded up to $15,000 and nonprofit art galleries or organizational applicants may be awarded up to $20,000.

Submission Deadline: 9 pm ET, Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Details here. 

Tips: If your artwork involves any kind of nudity - do not even bother.

Political art? Only one side of the aisle usually considered... cough... cough...

I am always shocked how few submissions we get each year! And the artists who "know about it" keep it up every year to the point that by now, there are artists with almost twenty works of art in the collection of the District of Columbia!

Interested?

In support of local visual artists, District art galleries, and art nonprofit organizations, CAH acquires fine art. The ongoing annual acquisition of art from metropolitan artists becomes a part of the Art Bank Collection. CAH manages artwork in the collection. It is then loaned to District Government agencies for display in public areas and offices of government buildings. The Art Bank Collection, which started in 1986, has nearly 3,000 artworks.

The Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) requests applications from qualified artists and District nonprofit art galleries or organizations for its Fiscal Year 2025 Art Bank Program. Award amounts vary but eligible individual applicants may be awarded up to $15,000 and nonprofit art galleries or organizational applicants may be awarded up to $20,000.

Submission Deadline: 9 pm ET, Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Details here. 

Tips: If your artwork involves any kind of nudity - do not even bother.

Political art? Only one side of the aisle usually considered... cough... cough...

About the exhibition:

Visitors are encouraged to witness the evolution of the piece by attending both at the start and end of his show. Through this exhibition, Robin hopes to push himself and other DMV artists to confront and comprehend our shared challenges with site-specific interventions.

About Robin Bell:

Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, is an award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC. Robin works on a range of creative, political and public interest projects.

<![CDATA[Art Bank Program Call for Artists]]> Found: submissions, submission, deadline, awarded, award

For many years, I have been a member of the advisory panel that recommends to the City of Washington which art to acquire for its city collection via its ART BANK program.

I am always shocked how few submissions we get each year! And the artists who "know about it" keep it up every year to the point that by now, there are artists with almost twenty works of art in the collection of the District of Columbia!

Interested?

In support of local visual artists, District art galleries, and art nonprofit organizations, CAH acquires fine art. The ongoing annual acquisition of art from metropolitan artists becomes a part of the Art Bank Collection. CAH manages artwork in the collection. It is then loaned to District Government agencies for display in public areas and offices of government buildings. The Art Bank Collection, which started in 1986, has nearly 3,000 artworks.

The Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) requests applications from qualified artists and District nonprofit art galleries or organizations for its Fiscal Year 2025 Art Bank Program. Award amounts vary but eligible individual applicants may be awarded up to $15,000 and nonprofit art galleries or organizational applicants may be awarded up to $20,000.

Submission Deadline: 9 pm ET, Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Details here. 

Tips: If your artwork involves any kind of nudity - do not even bother.

Political art? Only one side of the aisle usually considered... cough... cough...

About the exhibition:

Robin Bell fuses his 3D and sample-based structural art with light interventions in the OSAP’s gallery. The space serves as a canvas for displaying, creating, and expanding his work over two-months. Visitors are encouraged to witness the evolution of the piece by attending both at the start and end of his show. Through this exhibition, Robin hopes to push himself and other DMV artists to confront and comprehend our shared challenges with site-specific interventions.

About Robin Bell:

Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, is an award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC. Robin works on a range of creative, political and public interest projects.

Building upon his formal training as a classical printmaker, Robin developed a unique style of live video collage which he has performed at well-known venues, including The Kennedy Center, 9:30 Club, The Phillips Collection in Washington DC, Central Park Summer Stage in NYC, and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. Robin was the lead video editor for PBS television show Foreign Exchange with Fareed Zakaria. He also taught video classes at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.

<![CDATA[Art Bank Program Call for Artists]]> Found: submissions, submission, deadline, awarded, award

For many years, I have been a member of the advisory panel that recommends to the City of Washington which art to acquire for its city collection via its ART BANK program.

I am always shocked how few submissions we get each year! And the artists who "know about it" keep it up every year to the point that by now, there are artists with almost twenty works of art in the collection of the District of Columbia!

Interested?

In support of local visual artists, District art galleries, and art nonprofit organizations, CAH acquires fine art. The ongoing annual acquisition of art from metropolitan artists becomes a part of the Art Bank Collection. CAH manages artwork in the collection. It is then loaned to District Government agencies for display in public areas and offices of government buildings. The Art Bank Collection, which started in 1986, has nearly 3,000 artworks.

The Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) requests applications from qualified artists and District nonprofit art galleries or organizations for its Fiscal Year 2025 Art Bank Program. Award amounts vary but eligible individual applicants may be awarded up to $15,000 and nonprofit art galleries or organizational applicants may be awarded up to $20,000.

Submission Deadline: 9 pm ET, Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Details here. 

Tips: If your artwork involves any kind of nudity - do not even bother.

Political art? Only one side of the aisle usually considered... cough... cough...

About the exhibition:

Visitors are encouraged to witness the evolution of the piece by attending both at the start and end of his show. Through this exhibition, Robin hopes to push himself and other DMV artists to confront and comprehend our shared challenges with site-specific interventions.

About Robin Bell:

Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, is an award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC. Robin works on a range of creative, political and public interest projects.

<![CDATA[Art Bank Program Call for Artists]]> Found: submissions, submission, deadline, awarded, award

For many years, I have been a member of the advisory panel that recommends to the City of Washington which art to acquire for its city collection via its ART BANK program.

I am always shocked how few submissions we get each year! And the artists who "know about it" keep it up every year to the point that by now, there are artists with almost twenty works of art in the collection of the District of Columbia!

Interested?

In support of local visual artists, District art galleries, and art nonprofit organizations, CAH acquires fine art. The ongoing annual acquisition of art from metropolitan artists becomes a part of the Art Bank Collection. CAH manages artwork in the collection. It is then loaned to District Government agencies for display in public areas and offices of government buildings. The Art Bank Collection, which started in 1986, has nearly 3,000 artworks.

The Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) requests applications from qualified artists and District nonprofit art galleries or organizations for its Fiscal Year 2025 Art Bank Program. Award amounts vary but eligible individual applicants may be awarded up to $15,000 and nonprofit art galleries or organizational applicants may be awarded up to $20,000.

Submission Deadline: 9 pm ET, Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Details here. 

Tips: If your artwork involves any kind of nudity - do not even bother.

Political art? Only one side of the aisle usually considered... cough... cough...

About the exhibition:

Visitors are encouraged to witness the evolution of the piece by attending both at the start and end of his show. Through this exhibition, Robin hopes to push himself and other DMV artists to confront and comprehend our shared challenges with site-specific interventions.

About Robin Bell:

Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, is an award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC. Robin works on a range of creative, political and public interest projects.

Robin Bell will be at OSAP all Saturday talking about his current exhibition "Objects." 

About the exhibition:

Robin Bell fuses his 3D and sample-based structural art with light interventions in the OSAP’s gallery. The space serves as a canvas for displaying, creating, and expanding his work over two-months. Visitors are encouraged to witness the evolution of the piece by attending both at the start and end of his show. Through this exhibition, Robin hopes to push himself and other DMV artists to confront and comprehend our shared challenges with site-specific interventions.

About Robin Bell:

Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, is an award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC. Robin works on a range of creative, political and public interest projects.

Building upon his formal training as a classical printmaker, Robin developed a unique style of live video collage which he has performed at well-known venues, including The Kennedy Center, 9:30 Club, The Phillips Collection in Washington DC, Central Park Summer Stage in NYC, and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. Robin was the lead video editor for PBS television show Foreign Exchange with Fareed Zakaria. He also taught video classes at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.

In addition to his ongoing work with ephemeral media forms, Robin creates permanent public art installations, and is the director and producer of the Directed Actions Live Film Series.

<![CDATA[Art Bank Program Call for Artists]]> Found: submissions, submission, deadline, awarded, award

For many years, I have been a member of the advisory panel that recommends to the City of Washington which art to acquire for its city collection via its ART BANK program.

I am always shocked how few submissions we get each year! And the artists who "know about it" keep it up every year to the point that by now, there are artists with almost twenty works of art in the collection of the District of Columbia!

Interested?

In support of local visual artists, District art galleries, and art nonprofit organizations, CAH acquires fine art. The ongoing annual acquisition of art from metropolitan artists becomes a part of the Art Bank Collection. CAH manages artwork in the collection. It is then loaned to District Government agencies for display in public areas and offices of government buildings. The Art Bank Collection, which started in 1986, has nearly 3,000 artworks.

The Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) requests applications from qualified artists and District nonprofit art galleries or organizations for its Fiscal Year 2025 Art Bank Program. Award amounts vary but eligible individual applicants may be awarded up to $15,000 and nonprofit art galleries or organizational applicants may be awarded up to $20,000.

Submission Deadline: 9 pm ET, Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Details here. 

Tips: If your artwork involves any kind of nudity - do not even bother.

Political art? Only one side of the aisle usually considered... cough... cough...

Robin Bell will be at OSAP all Saturday talking about his current exhibition "Objects." 

About the exhibition:

Robin Bell fuses his 3D and sample-based structural art with light interventions in the OSAP’s gallery. The space serves as a canvas for displaying, creating, and expanding his work over two-months. Visitors are encouraged to witness the evolution of the piece by attending both at the start and end of his show. Through this exhibition, Robin hopes to push himself and other DMV artists to confront and comprehend our shared challenges with site-specific interventions.

About Robin Bell:

Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, is an award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC. Robin works on a range of creative, political and public interest projects.

Building upon his formal training as a classical printmaker, Robin developed a unique style of live video collage which he has performed at well-known venues, including The Kennedy Center, 9:30 Club, The Phillips Collection in Washington DC, Central Park Summer Stage in NYC, and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. Robin was the lead video editor for PBS television show Foreign Exchange with Fareed Zakaria. He also taught video classes at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.

In addition to his ongoing work with ephemeral media forms, Robin creates permanent public art installations, and is the director and producer of the Directed Actions Live Film Series.

<![CDATA[Art Bank Program Call for Artists]]> Found: submissions, submission, deadline, awarded, award

For many years, I have been a member of the advisory panel that recommends to the City of Washington which art to acquire for its city collection via its ART BANK program.

I am always shocked how few submissions we get each year! And the artists who "know about it" keep it up every year to the point that by now, there are artists with almost twenty works of art in the collection of the District of Columbia!

Interested?

In support of local visual artists, District art galleries, and art nonprofit organizations, CAH acquires fine art. The ongoing annual acquisition of art from metropolitan artists becomes a part of the Art Bank Collection. CAH manages artwork in the collection. It is then loaned to District Government agencies for display in public areas and offices of government buildings. The Art Bank Collection, which started in 1986, has nearly 3,000 artworks.

The Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) requests applications from qualified artists and District nonprofit art galleries or organizations for its Fiscal Year 2025 Art Bank Program. Award amounts vary but eligible individual applicants may be awarded up to $15,000 and nonprofit art galleries or organizational applicants may be awarded up to $20,000.

Submission Deadline: 9 pm ET, Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Details here. 

Tips: If your artwork involves any kind of nudity - do not even bother.

Political art? Only one side of the aisle usually considered... cough... cough...

Visit the largest Open Studios event in the DMV.

The Gateway Arts District - Mount Rainier, Brentwood, North Brentwood and Hyattsville, MD. Four towns, one community.

Over 250 participating artists along the Rt. 1 corridor.


Just at Otis Street Arts Projects (OSAP): Ebtisam Abdulaziz, Jason Bulluck, Stephanie Cobb, Ceci Cole McInturff, Chris Combs, Beth Curren, Art Drauglis, Kendra Lee, Liz Lescault, Kirsty Little, Shelley Lowenstein, Becky McFall, Lisa Rosenstein, Gloria Vasquez, David Mordini and resident artists Jasmine Adams.

You can also visit uberartist Robin Bell this Saturday! May 11, 12-5PM.

Robin Bell will be at OSAP all Saturday talking about his current exhibition "Objects." 

About the exhibition:

Robin Bell fuses his 3D and sample-based structural art with light interventions in the OSAP’s gallery. The space serves as a canvas for displaying, creating, and expanding his work over two-months. Visitors are encouraged to witness the evolution of the piece by attending both at the start and end of his show. Through this exhibition, Robin hopes to push himself and other DMV artists to confront and comprehend our shared challenges with site-specific interventions.

About Robin Bell:

Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, is an award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC. Robin works on a range of creative, political and public interest projects.

Building upon his formal training as a classical printmaker, Robin developed a unique style of live video collage which he has performed at well-known venues, including The Kennedy Center, 9:30 Club, The Phillips Collection in Washington DC, Central Park Summer Stage in NYC, and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. Robin was the lead video editor for PBS television show Foreign Exchange with Fareed Zakaria. He also taught video classes at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.

In addition to his ongoing work with ephemeral media forms, Robin creates permanent public art installations, and is the director and producer of the Directed Actions Live Film Series.

<![CDATA[Art Bank Program Call for Artists]]> Found: submissions, submission, deadline, awarded, award

For many years, I have been a member of the advisory panel that recommends to the City of Washington which art to acquire for its city collection via its ART BANK program.

I am always shocked how few submissions we get each year! And the artists who "know about it" keep it up every year to the point that by now, there are artists with almost twenty works of art in the collection of the District of Columbia!

Interested?

In support of local visual artists, District art galleries, and art nonprofit organizations, CAH acquires fine art. The ongoing annual acquisition of art from metropolitan artists becomes a part of the Art Bank Collection. CAH manages artwork in the collection. It is then loaned to District Government agencies for display in public areas and offices of government buildings. The Art Bank Collection, which started in 1986, has nearly 3,000 artworks.

The Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) requests applications from qualified artists and District nonprofit art galleries or organizations for its Fiscal Year 2025 Art Bank Program. Award amounts vary but eligible individual applicants may be awarded up to $15,000 and nonprofit art galleries or organizational applicants may be awarded up to $20,000.

Submission Deadline: 9 pm ET, Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Details here. 

Tips: If your artwork involves any kind of nudity - do not even bother.

Political art? Only one side of the aisle usually considered... cough... cough...

Robin Bell will be at OSAP all Saturday talking about his current exhibition "Objects." 

About the exhibition:

Robin Bell fuses his 3D and sample-based structural art with light interventions in the OSAP’s gallery. The space serves as a canvas for displaying, creating, and expanding his work over two-months. Visitors are encouraged to witness the evolution of the piece by attending both at the start and end of his show. Through this exhibition, Robin hopes to push himself and other DMV artists to confront and comprehend our shared challenges with site-specific interventions.

About Robin Bell:

Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, is an award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC. Robin works on a range of creative, political and public interest projects.

Building upon his formal training as a classical printmaker, Robin developed a unique style of live video collage which he has performed at well-known venues, including The Kennedy Center, 9:30 Club, The Phillips Collection in Washington DC, Central Park Summer Stage in NYC, and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. Robin was the lead video editor for PBS television show Foreign Exchange with Fareed Zakaria. He also taught video classes at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.

In addition to his ongoing work with ephemeral media forms, Robin creates permanent public art installations, and is the director and producer of the Directed Actions Live Film Series.

<![CDATA[Art Bank Program Call for Artists]]> Found: submissions, submission, deadline, awarded, award

For many years, I have been a member of the advisory panel that recommends to the City of Washington which art to acquire for its city collection via its ART BANK program.

I am always shocked how few submissions we get each year! And the artists who "know about it" keep it up every year to the point that by now, there are artists with almost twenty works of art in the collection of the District of Columbia!

Interested?

In support of local visual artists, District art galleries, and art nonprofit organizations, CAH acquires fine art. The ongoing annual acquisition of art from metropolitan artists becomes a part of the Art Bank Collection. CAH manages artwork in the collection. It is then loaned to District Government agencies for display in public areas and offices of government buildings. The Art Bank Collection, which started in 1986, has nearly 3,000 artworks.

The Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) requests applications from qualified artists and District nonprofit art galleries or organizations for its Fiscal Year 2025 Art Bank Program. Award amounts vary but eligible individual applicants may be awarded up to $15,000 and nonprofit art galleries or organizational applicants may be awarded up to $20,000.

Submission Deadline: 9 pm ET, Tuesday, May 28, 2024
