Campus Arts Initiative Open Call (Due Feb. 14)

The Campus Arts Initiative is a project of Penn State’s Strategic Planning Seed Grant program. Campus Arts will commission eight site-specific visual artworks for high-impact locations across the Commonwealth campuses between 2018-2020. University partners were selected from an open call for applications advertised to Penn State students, faculty, staff, departments, and units throughout the commonwealth.

The selected partners are as follows: Center for Performing Arts at Penn State (University Park); LGBTQA Student Resource Center (University Park); Penn State Abington; Penn State Beaver; Penn State College of Engineering (University Park); Penn State Erie, The Behrend College; Penn State Lehigh Valley; and Penn State Materials Research Institute (University Park).

The Submittable link for the national open call for artists to submit qualifications is below and the deadline for submission is February 14, 2019 11:59 pm EST. Artists will be selected by a jury of partner collaborators and ­­­arts professionals, and selection will be based on mutual interest. Each artwork will be made in partnership between artists and host entities. Selected artists will be notified in March 2019 and projects will be completed/installed no later than fall 2019.
