Art & Culture in the Hall
Invitation to Exhibit Art and Culture at Oshawa City Hall
The City of Oshawa invites artists and groups to submit proposals for temporary exhibitions to be displayed in Oshawa City Hall. Candidates must live or work in Durham Region.
The exhibition space consists of three locked display cases in the Council Wing hallway of City Hall. Each locked case measures approximately 8’ (height) x 6’-8’(width) x 2’(depth) 2.4m x 1.8 – 2.4m x 0.55m with ceiling hanging devices and glass shelves available for displays.
The display cases will showcase community artwork, heritage displays or collections for approximately a six-month period. In 2014, two exhibitions will be scheduled February – July and July – January.
All proposals should be post-marked no later than December 2, 2013. Please include a photo, artist statement and contact information. The display proposal can be up to 10 visuals (no original art works; CD ROM preferred). The submissions will be reviewed by the Art and History Committee comprised of City of Oshawa staff, representatives from the Oshawa Community Museum and The Robert McLaughlin Gallery.
Applicants will be notified of the Committee’s decision in early January 2014. At that time, arrangements will be made to coordinate the installation, timelines and details. (All exhibits are to be in a condition suitable for display, e.g. matting, framing, etc…) The City, in conjunction with the Oshawa Community Museum and The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, will assist with the installation of the exhibition.
NOTE: The City of Oshawa and its partners/agents will not be responsible for insurance coverage of the works of art while they are on display.
