Calling All DUMBO Artists: proJect DUMBO
“J Condo, is working with the DUMBO Arts Center to host the proJect DUMBO competition to choose the art hung throughout the building.
Open exclusively to DUMBO artists, proJect Dumbo is seeking submissions for three separate wall spaces. All mediums and styles are accepted, and recent work is welcome.
Finalists to be chosen by a panel, and the winners will be voted on by the future residents of the building. The total cash prizes of $16,000 will be announced at a grand celebration in March.
Submissions must be received by February 16th. For specific details, rules, spaces and deadlines, visit www.jcondo.com/projectdumbo.”
Artists, you have just over a month to submit your ideas! Kudos to J Condo for featuring local artists in their space. David Walentas seems to have started this by featuring artists in his buildings, including Helen Brough’s installation at 70 Washington Street building. The difference is that residents of J Condo get to choose the winning art installations. It will be interesting to see the final picks by the residents.
