A while back I posted a bit about a fiery DC area artist (Marsha Stein), who decided that the reported woes of the City Museum of Washington, DC deserved some hands on action.
So she's taking some action.
Stein has come up with a project to revitalize what the City Museum of Washington, DC does to leave a significant footprint on our city.
Here it is, in her own words:
This project will bring together artists from the Washington, DC area to form "artistic teams" and create collaborative pieces that convey ideas about Washington, DC.All artists, newspeople and visual art lovers who are interested to participate, learn more, or put in their two cents are invited to:
The works of art created by the teams will be displayed in a feature exhibition at The City Museum of Washington, DC.
Visitors will be invited to vote on their favorite piece, as well as describe why they made this choice. The artists will be documented on film while they are in the creative process for educational purposes. These pieces will be auctioned at the close of the exhibit.
The goals of the project are to:
1. Bring the artistic community together
2. Empower DC artists to create an artistic movement
3. Integrate artists with the community
A jury panel will select the teams. The call will invite individuals as well as those who can form teams of two or three to send slides as well as describe why they want to do "team art."
