Call for Artists

Seattle Erotic Art Festival

Touchable Sculpture

Two years ago we curated and displayed a sculpture gallery at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival of touchable stone sculpture. The gallery was a huge hit and Cyra Jane has been invited back to the Festival as a Guest Curator for 2020. We are expanding to include other materials rather than just stone; the exhibit will be partially curated by yours truly and partially cherry-picked from sculpture submissions to the festival from artists around the world.

SEAF is the last weekend of April and is in the Seattle Exhibition Hall. It pulls in about 4,500 attendees each year and showcases over 200 works from regional and international artists. The gallery is open during the day and the evenings are spectacular events with performances and music and over a thousand people all enjoying the art and the conversations about the art. It is hands down one of the most interactive and exciting art shows I've ever attended.

If you want to participate, please send Cyra Jane a photo of the sculpture you'd like to submit. It needn't be figurative nor necessarily erotic. If it's fun to touch, that's the point! We blindfold people and have them guess what the sculpture is. Interesting textures and suggestive shapes, nice curves and abstract edges are all welcome. Bonus for sculpture that *is* erotic, though. :)

I'll be gathering submissions until mid-January and selecting between 8-12 sculptures total. Artists will receive a ticket to the event and their work will be in the festival catalog and eligible for the People's Choice and Festival Best of Awards.

Thanks, Cyra

Public Art Archive

This is a call for the inclusion of public art collections in the Public Art Archive, an online database of public art. To be considered for inclusion, you must be a professional artist who has completed and installed public artwork, or an administrator of an established public art program. There is no charge to submit entries to the Public Art Archive. Public art is defined here as art that is situated in a location that is accessible or viewable by the general public and was, in most cases, commissioned by a public art entity, typically using percent-for-art or public funding. Gallery art and art exhibited inside galleries and museums is not eligible. Works of art that were commissioned and/or gifted by corporations, museums, educational institutions, private parties, and other entities may also be eligible. Permanently cited, temporary, new media, performative, rotating, and portable works may be eligible if they meet the commonly known definition of public art or civic art.

The Public Art Archive™ (PAA™), like CallforEntry.org™ (CaFE™), is powered by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF). The Western States Arts Federation is a nonprofit regional arts service organization dedicated to the development of an expanded awareness of the power of the arts. Much of the organization’s work is accomplished through the development of technologies that benefit the arts and the arts community. WESTAF created the PAA™, which launched in 2009 with the collections of a few pilot public art agencies. We are pleased to invite artists and collection managers to include their artworks on this premier database for public art.
