Juried Multimedia Exhibit

Exhibit Dates: July 22–August 7

Art isn’t confined to museums or studios or classrooms, it lives and breathes on the streets around us. Graffiti, murals, chalk art, street performers, sculptures; we might pass by them on our commutes or walking around town. In this exhibit, we are celebrating the art around us that endures the elements and exists in unexpected places.

Note on graffiti: Original graffiti works are encourage and welcome!

  • Pieces cannot measure more than 5ft x 5ft and the weight of each piece needs to be less than 50lbs.
  • All pieces (whether on board, canvas, paper, etc.) need to be wired and ready to hang. Please email the gallery with any questions about the hanging system.

Note on photography: Photography is undoubtedly a popular medium for capturing many forms of street art. In order to protect photographers as well as graffiti artists and muralists from copyright infringement, the following rules for photography submissions apply:

  • Photography of graffiti/wall art created by an artist other than the photographer themselves may NOT be listed for sale.
  • Photography of graffiti/wall art must be framed with the surrounding environment viewable (no close-ups depicting the completed piece only) and must adhere to a 50/50 ratio (no more than 50% of the photograph being the graffiti/wall art)
  • Titles of photographed pieces of graffiti/wall art will have the addition of the graffiti artist’s name (if known) or “Graffiti Artist/s Unknown” (if unknown).

This exhibit will be hung in the gallery, HOWEVER there is the option to have your work included ONLY in the virtual gallery. In your statement PLEASE include whether your submissions are for the in-person exhibit AND the virtual gallery, or the virtual gallery ONLY if you prefer.
