CALL FOR ENTRIES
A yarn bombing event is in the works for in and around the 18th Street Arts Center for June 18th-July 8, 2011...
Even if you live far away, can not travel to Los Angeles but would like to participate, we can try to figure out a way to work together. Since you can not visit the site in person, the first step would be for you to take a look at the images of the place at http://yarnbombing18th.weebly.com/site-info.html. Please note space is available on a first come basis. We started accepting proposals but there's still ample space to tag.
Having looked at snapshots of the site, feel free to email us for measurements, detail shots as needed. Once you decide where and what, download the application form to send us a proposal.
The proposal materials include:
1) 1-2 paragraph description of the project
2) specific location of the piece (based on http://yarnbombing18th.weebly.com/gallery.html)
3) drawings and/or manipulated photographs
Since you'll be picking your location from the images on the website, please download that image, mark the exact object you'd like to work with, draw a rough representation of what you'd like to do on top of the photograph.
Upon acceptance, we will reserve your spot, send measurements and review work in progress upon request, install the work received by mail before June 1st, 2011, photograph the installed piece and post the image on our website with your name. Upon acceptance, artists will be asked to sign and return the agreement asap and mail the work before June 1st, 2011.
Unless a self addressed and stamped envelope is included or other arrangements have been made, we will be unable to return the work. Please note, due to the nature of street art, outdoor pieces may be damaged or disappear.
