upcoming exhibits and calls for artists

Spooky Show 2020:
ARTSWIN’s Halloween themed art exhibit

The Arts Council loves Halloween, and to celebrate, we will host another Spooky Show this fall, filling the gallery with loads of scary, funny, and whimsical creations during the month of October. While we hope to display many 2D scary scenes and specters on the walls, we want our 3D artists to conjure creepy creatures that can take residence in the gallery for the Spooky Season.

The entry fee for this exhibit is what each artist can afford, even if that is nothing. If you cannot give anything right now, please consider becoming a member or donating at a time when you can.

Easterseals Rehabilitation Center: INSPIRATION THROUGH ART

“Easterseals has created an opportunity for children and adults with disabilities to gain “Inspiration through Art!” 

“Many of the people we serve with disabilities receive therapy services and attend appointments at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center at 3701 Bellemeade Ave. in Evansville. In many cases, they attend at least once a week, every week for extended periods of time and some will receive services for many years.

We are focused on making our facility reflect the great work our therapists are doing and finding ways to educate and engage our clients in community resources and activities. One great way to do that is through art!

“We will be displaying the artwork for four months, rotating the work three times a year. Artists are allowed to price their pieces and there is no entry fee. “Inspiration through Art” exhibit is located in our main hallway, so there is a lot of traffic coming through each day. There is no theme at this time for “Inspiration through Art” but we ask that art be appropriate for children to see.

Temporary Art Installation at Riverside Adventure Park

Project Description: In 2017 Indy Parks completed a master plan for the 800-acre Riverside Regional Park, which will guide the development of the park over the next 20 years.

While the plan will have a long lifespan, there will be projects identified that can allow improvements to begin as soon as possible. Indy Parks is ready to begin a project which is focused on furthering the transformation of the former Riverside Golf Course into an adventure park. This is a 200-acre section of the Riverside Regional Park.

See map for boundaries. This project will be an opportunity to transform this area from a single use into a park that serves a larger community with a wide variety of activities and uses. The purpose of the temporary art installations is to demonstrate the potential of art on the site to the community during the conceptual design phase of the parks redesign process.

This RFP is an open call to experienced artists and artist teams from the United States. Get the full RFP at http://adventureriverside.com/.
