Hey, artists — people want you
A couple of calls for artists arrived at Pitch headquarters last week.
Anticipating the Ecstatic Resistance show that opens November 13 at Grand Arts, the My Barbarian
collective is looking for local performance artists for a new work called “Broke People’s Baroque
project is a vaudeville style show in which the participants will
perform their own work and join a chorus/cast directed and scripted by
My Barbarian. The subject of the project is survival through economic
hardship: critical, humorous, political, irreverent, satirical and/or
earnest responses are encouraged.
Sketches, songs, dances, speeches and scenes get workshopped at a Master Class starting November 10. Find more details here.
If you don’t mind your work decorating a shopping mall (we aren’t judging!), the Summit Fair Development in Lee’s Summit, home of the new Macy’s and JCPenney, has $18,000 to spend on public art. From their call for entries:
As part of the ongoing retail development at Summit Fair RED Development will commission an artist or an artist team to create a permanent, outdoor art installation for an important roundabout green space. Artists may be asked to to work collaboratively with members of the Artist Selection Panel and project consultants. The project welcomes all media and approaches for site-specific works.
Deadline is November 30. More information is here.
