OPEN CALL: Marfa

I’ve been searching for a new St. Valentine’s Day activity for years.  Our tried ‘n’ true floor picnics with wine-steamed mussels went South when Jon developed an allergy to shellfish.  We’ve been floundering since then.  Usually we just revert to lamb chops and asparagus at home because we live in the 2nd most popular place to wed in the country.  We don’t want to fight the crowds of newly weds for a dinner of processed cheese fondue, a dozen artificially-dyed, neon-red roses and a heart-shaped cardboard box of chocolates.  No thanks.  O, how I would LOVE to attend a fantastic opening like the one we can expect of this next Call.  Alas, only the DEADLINE of this Call is on St. Valentine’s Day. Take a look…

Check out this Open Call from The Biennial Project (East Boston, MA) for the Biennial Roadshow Marfa 2014 (Marfa, TX).   Marfa is the proverbial house that Donald Judd built.  Just do your homework.  And, if your heart, like mine, has ever longed to be a part of this particularly uber-cool art scene, here’s your chance…

This is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick…

Art will be presented as part of a giant screen digital display at The Biennial Roadshow Marfa 2014 Hoodang (that is a reception for you non-Texans) and Gala  being held at world-renowned El Cosmico, the coolest gathering spot for trend-makers in the art-world Mecca of Marfa, Texas.

Why Marfa, Texas?

 

It all started when the acclaimed minimalist artist Donald Judd left New York City in the 1970s for this dusty dot of a town.  With the help of the DIA Foundation, Judd acquired an entire Army base, and before he died in 1994, he filled it with art, including light installations by Dan Flavin and Judd’s own signature boxes. Now it’s a whole creative community.

ELIGIBILITY:  Open to all artists
