CALLS FOR ARTISTS

Get involved in the Colorado Springs local art community! We have only one or two calls for artists a year.  For sure, you should submit to our Annual Small Works show, which opens the first Friday in December, and the call for which is usually two weeks prior.  Other calls happen occasionally… check below to see if we have one coming up!

Young Hot Sh*ts: A Call for Artists aged 17-25

Young Hot Sh*ts: A Call for Artists aged 17-25

The Modbo proudly presents a rare call for artists for the upcoming Young Hot Sh*ts show!  In an ongoing effort to foster and promote the careers and aspirations of young artists, this show seeks work in all media from creatives aged 17-25.  There is no size or media limitation, but preference will be given to works that can hang on the wall, due to space constraints. Just $5 to enter up to three pieces.  All work must be brought to The Modbo, in the alley at 17C E. Bijou, 80903, between 10 am and 4 pm on Wednesday, October 4th.  

All work must be ready to hang, with two points of attachment, such as d-rings or screw eyes on the back. A frame isn’t absolutely necessary, but sturdiness is– for example, paper with two sticky tabs on the back will not suffice. A panel of jurors will evaluate the work, and decisions will be revealed at pickup the next day, October 5th. The show will open on Friday, October 6th.  Questions? Call Lauren at 633-4240 or email themodbo@gmail.com
