Call For Artists: Storefront Art Installation Grant

Storefront Window Art Grant in Downtown AlamedaArtists and artist teams are being sought for creative projects in Downtown Alameda…

Artists will have an opportunity to create public art displays in vacant storefront windows in Downtown Alameda. The project’s theme Radical Beauty encourages artists to create displays that inspire awe and wonder. Opening celebrations will take place as part of the 2nd Friday ArtWalks beginning in March 2018.

Applications are open to artists working in or across all disciplines, including drawing, painting, illustration, multimedia, sculpture, photography and time-based works. Artists need not have previous publicly displayed work to be considered.

Projects will be selected by a review panel made up of interdisciplinary artists, members of the Downtown Alameda Business Association, and other prominent members of the community. Stipends of $1,000 and a materials budget of $200 will be awarded to help fund the creation of selected projects.

The project is organized by Rhythmix Cultural Works in partnership with the Downtown Alameda Business Association and the City of Alameda as part of the Love Our Island Art Walk, a two‐year project that temporarily places art in empty storefront windows. Support for the project is generously provided by the California Arts Council.

Deadline for submission is December 22. To be considered, artists can review the application guidelines at
