Midlands #SCartists, let’s start with you. We’ve covered this before, so maybe you checked this in previously and it’s your turn to board? CAE is looking for artists for the 2022 Art in the Airport program: “Throughout the year, this wildly popular program showcases the work of four artists’ from across Columbia region in the busiest part of the airport. [Art in the Airport] not only enhances the passengers’ experience while traveling through CAE, it creates an immediate sense of place to those visiting. Once a traveler lands, these pieces of art are the first creative and cultural touchpoints they have to the region.” This link will help you take off to the CAE website for more information.

Rochester (New York) Contemporary Art Center

  • SUBMISSION DEADLINE (Mailed): Tuesday, April 12, 2022

From an email to Hub HQ: “…the exhibition is our annual 6×6, which is the original small art phenomenon, and is hosted by Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo), a small, non-profit art center in Rochester, New York! This annual exhibition, 6×6, raises critical funds needed to pay artists, maintain our building and administer contemporary art programming to our community this coming year! The artwork(s) will help our mission to provide unique encounters for audiences and extraordinary opportunities for artists. Learn more about 6×6 at roco6x6.org.

The exhibition, a past version of which is pictured above, is scheduled to run June 4 through July 17, 2022. Artist participation is free, as one would hope, given that they are soliciting donations from which they hope to raise funds. There is a limit of four submissions per school or school group.
