Call to ARTISTS / BROOKLYNITES for Exhibit Proposals: Public Perspectives Exhibition Series
Brooklyn-based artists and curators are invited to submit proposals for the 2009-2010 season of the Public Perspectives exhibition series in the Independence Community Gallery at Brooklyn Historical Society. Exhibition concepts should explore themes that further BHS’ core mission: to connect the past to the present and make the vibrant history of Brooklyn tangible, relevant, and meaningful for today’s diverse communities. Note: To encourage creative collaboration, proposals must involve two or more artists’ work – solo exhibitions are ineligible. Three recipients will be selected, each with a $1000 honorarium + up to $1000 in reimbursable exhibit expenses. Full guidelines and the application form are available as a PDF on the BHS website www.brooklynhistory.org. Submission receipt deadline: May 15, 2009.
