Studio Art Program Seeking Submissions for Grand Boulevard Exhibit
The Studio Art Program in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at Saint Louis University is inviting artists (students, staff, and faculty) in the SLU community to explore the topic, Grand Boulevard, for its first-ever themed juried exhibition.
Grand Boulevard is a major north-south St. Louis thoroughfare running from Carondelet Park in the south, to the McKinley Bridge and Mississippi River in the north. It intersects many of the city's neighborhoods, including Dutchtown, Tower Grove East, Tower Grove South, Compton Heights, Tiffany, Midtown, Jeff-Vander-Lou, Fairground, and College Hill.
The Grand Avenue (70) Metro bus travels the length of Grand Boulevard and has the largest ridership in the system. The intention of the chosen topic, Grand Boulevard, is not to literally drive the work, but to be a spark as artists consider Grand Boulevard and its place in the city, and/or the artist's life.
Artists are invited to enter one to two artworks that are an interpretation of the call. All mediums are welcome.
Artists should attach a completed copy of the entry form to each piece. All work will be juried on site at McNamee Gallery and must be finished, framed, and otherwise ready for installation.
Works not accepted must be picked up by the date indicated. The Studio Art Program is not responsible for damaged or lost work, though every effort will be made to protect the work throughout the duration of the exhibition.
