Philadelphia Sculptors & Independence Seaport Museum: Call for Installations (Due. May 1)
Submission Deadline: May 1, 2019
Philadelphia Sculptors seeks artists to create temporary outdoor floating sculptural installations for our Fall, 2019 exhibition Flow, a collaboration with the Independence Seaport Museum. The exhibition will be sited in the boat basin adjacent to the Museum, located at Penn’s Landing on the Delaware River in Philadelphia and will run from October 11 – November 30, 2019. The intent of the exhibition is to unite art with the river, and with the Museum’s mission and programming. Five juried artists, along with five invited artists previously selected, will interpret the river and how it affects, and is affected by, human and natural history; human and natural migrations; climate change and the environment; economic development; and political currents. The geographic focus of the show is on the Americas and we are seeking artists from Mexico, South and Central America, and Canada, along with artists from the US and its territories. The jurors will be Teresa Jaynes and Nato Thompson. The exhibition is also co-sponsored by the Dina Wind Art Foundation. There is a $30 submission fee.
All submissions must be made online using Slideroom. For artists who have not previously used this platform, instructions for creating a login will be given once the Slideroom link is accessed. Artists who have already created a login will use their existing one.

Existing work that fits the exhibition guidelines may be submitted instead of a proposal for new work. You do not need to complete your application in one sitting, but it is helpful to assemble all the required materials when you prepare your application.
