Education, Arts & Culture Announces Call For Emerging Artists Exhibit 2013

Monday, January 07, 2013

The City of Chattanooga Department of Education, Arts & Culture (EAC) announces a call for its 2013 Emerging Artists Exhibit. The exhibit is part of EAC’s Arts in Nontraditional Spaces (ANTS) outreach showcasing art and photography in public spaces such as the local airport, City Hall, housing authority headquarters, among others. Selected artwork for the “Emerging Artists Exhibit 2013” will be displayed at EAC office spaces.

Arts in Nontraditional Spaces (ANTS) projects include the premiere of “I Believe I Can Fly,” an art exhibit at the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport displaying the works of students from local elementary schools. ANTS has also showcased musical talent from elementary and middle school bands at the airport with “Songs Take Flight for the Holidays.” One of the most popular ANTS exhibits is the City Employee Art Show at City Hall.

EAC Administrator Missy Crutchfield said, “The arts enhance lifelong learning. One of our goals at EAC is to showcase the creative talent of youth, adults, and seniors in nontraditional spaces such as the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport, Chattanooga Housing Authority, and City Hall. With this year’s focus, we extend this open call for Emerging Artists in our city and we look forward to an outstanding exhibition at our EAC office spaces.”

EAC is currently accepting applications for the Emerging Artists Exhibit 2013 from visual artists to exhibit in the EAC office spaces. EAC has a year round open submission policy for our exhibitions and accepts artwork from emerging artists in two-dimensional work. This is an ongoing call for entries. Exhibits may feature the works of a single artist, a complimentary small group exhibit, or a themed exhibit.
