Calls and Opportunities
We invite you to explore and apply to the open artist calls and community opportunities with Roswell Arts Fund.
Artist Call for Entry
The current pandemic has momentarily closed the doors for many traditional spaces dedicated to art but the desire for connection and creative experiences is thriving. Roswell has a wealth of nontraditional outdoor spaces to explore and there is an opportunity to curate unique and unexpected experiences for neighborhoods throughout the city.
Roswell Arts Fund, in partnership with the City of Roswell, Getty Images, and the Hagan Family Foundation is seeking entries from artists and photographers for a new, exciting outdoor photography exhibition. The Roswell in Print photography exhibit is designed to highlight the diverse characteristics of the City of Roswell, using visual storytellers to capture it through beautiful, compelling imagery and displayed in a non-traditional space.
Set in a series of three-month periods, work will be displayed alongside curated photographs from Getty Images. These exhibit periods are October through December, February through April, and June through August. Each exhibit will explore a theme chosen from one of the concepts identified as a part of Roswell’s “community char-acter framework” in Roswell’s Public Art Master Plan
This call is open to all artists, designers, and teams. Roswell Arts Fund strives for inclusivity and diversity representative of the Roswell community and the metro Atlanta area in all initiatives.
• Artists may submit up to 5 images for consideration. All images must have title, description, and price (if applicable).
• If selected, artists are responsible for supplying Roswell Arts Fund with High-Resolution digital images.
Community Call: Apply to be a part of a Roswell Arts Fund Public Art Selection Panel
Have you ever looked at Sentience in the Heart of Canton Street or Ask the Fish at Don White or the Ribbon bike racks at Riverside Park and wondered, “Who decided to put that there?” Answer: a selection panel made up of community members just like you!
The Public Art Program is seeking interested community members, artists, and arts professionals who live or work in Roswell to be involved in this exciting process*.
Each Selection Panel is comprised of a minimum of eight voting members with additional members added depending on the scope of the project. It is the role of the voting panelists to make decisions as a group concerning the final selection of the artist or artist team.
Roswell Arts Fund is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in all our programs, initiatives, and processes. For this reason, we request demographic information as it is important that we ensure a diversity of voices are represented in our programs and decision-making committees. Thank you for sharing information about yourself.
*Participation in this survey does not guarantee you will be asked to serve on a selection panel.
