Call for Artists- Reflections on Death Art Show

artcamp

 

Join us for an exciting event this Halloween season, exploring the holidays and ceremonies around the world that honor the dead, and explore how death is a common theme to all of humanity, and learn about the diverse ways humans express this. Our plan is to build several puppets and masks of papier mache, and string them around the sidewalks around the Peace and Justice Center. During the week of Halloween, we’ll conduct walking tours in the evenings, and lead them back to the Peace and Justice Center for an art show, submitted by local artists, around the theme of death and the artists’ exploration of that theme.We need lots of help building the puppets, as well as individual art contributions to this theme. Art Camp is for kids ages 7 to 17, but parents are encouraged to participate as well. Join us every Wednesday and Thursday from 4 to 5 from and we’ll build puppets, learn about other cultures, and all of this goes to raise money for the Peace and Justice Center to continue our great programs going! We ask for a $5 donation for each kid to participate in art camp, but that $5 means you can participate for the whole 8 class session without being asked to donate again. Unless you want to, of course. Perfect after-school activity, and within the hours of operation of the bus, at that!

Call For Artists: We’re holding a fundraiser the week of October 24th till October 31st. It is a fundraiser that will include walking tours, a public art exhibit, and finally, an art show that will feature you, our local artists! We are asking artists to produce works exploring the theme of death. Note: This is NOT supposed to be a gore-fest. We’re asking artists to really think about the concepts of death, their feelings on it, their experiences and their truths surrounding death. If gore is necessary, please keep it to an absolute minimum.

We believe in artists getting paid for their work, so all the art submitted will be available for sale. The Peace and Justice Center asks only 20% of each sale, so that we may continue our great art programs in the future and continue to provide a platform for our incredible local talent. The proceeds go to continue all of the P&Js awesome programs, among them our fast-growing youth art program, Art Camp, which creates public installations throughout the year. 

If you have a piece you’d like to submit, please send us a message and we’ll schedule a time to meet so you can drop it off. We’ll keep it safe for you and all unsold pieces will be promptly returned to the artist.
