Entry Deadline: Tuesday, February 28
Telfair Museums, in partnership with The Grey, is delighted to announce an inaugural $500 crowd-funded microgrant to a local Savannah artist! This competition is open to artists working and living in Savannah who are not in a degree-seeking program. Work must be part of a non-existing project, open to the public, and should be site-specific and community responsive in a way that is socially engaging for the Savannah community. This competition is open to all forms of expression, including but not limited to visual, performing, sound, and literary disciplines which activate a public social space. The winning artist will have three months to realize their work and prepare for an artist talk at the Jepson Center, which will be free and open to the public. To apply, artists must submit an artist statement, a history of past work, a brief summary of proposed work with supplementary visual aids, a timeline, and any budget requirements.
Event: #art912 at The Grey
Saturday, May 13, 12–3pm / The Grey / Admission $25 at the door
A panel comprising representatives from Telfair Museums, The Grey, and the local art community will choose the top three proposals. These finalists will be informed one month in advance and will be required to present their final proposals at The Grey with visual aids. This presentation is open to the public; a ticket includes a meal, a beverage, and a voting ticket. The winner will be announced at 2:45pm.
