Open Call for 2011 Installation Proposals
OPEN CALL FOR 2011 INSTALLATION PROPOSALS
The Luminary Center for the Arts is a nonprofit contemporary arts organization based in St. Louis, MO. The Luminary seeks to provide meaningful support to emerging artists, audiences and appreciators in the St. Louis area. As a combined studio, education, and exhibition space, we bring together a conversation from all areas of the art world, encouraging creative engagement with contemporary art production and processes.
The Luminary invites artists and curators to submit proposals for site-specific installations to be realized in our dedicated Installation Space throughout 2011. The 500 sq. ft. space is a renovated former chapel with 20 ft vaulted ceilings, natural light, and a one-of-a-kind environment for the presentation of new work. Each artist accepted will have up to two weeks for installation and each project will remain up for six weeks from the date of the opening. The Luminary serves as an incubator of new ideas and proposals with an innovative, interactive and experimental approach will be given priority.
