Organization Rochester Contemporary Art Center
Deadline October 15, 2022

Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) invites artists to propose three images for a temporary public art installation at our main facility. Through this call for art we aim to offer a simple submission process for incisive, surprising, and unique imagery that will enliven the East Avenue neighborhood. Of particular interest are projects that connect visitors to the location, community and/or history of the neighborhood, challenge visitors and passersby, and address important social and political issues. RoCo welcomes visual artists of all genres. RoCo also invites visual artists to collaborate with literary artists as we have previously shown in this location.

The completed series of three images will be exhibited to the public 24/7 for 4-6 months. The duration will be determined with RoCo staff based on the seasons and circumstances. Artist will receive a stipend for the use of their preexisting images. All production and installation costs are covered by RoCo.

Proposals that utilize the frames in addition to sculptural installations are also encouraged. (See separate RFP on our website)
