Oranje 2011 Call for Participants: Share Your Art with Indy

Oranje is unquestionably the best party in Indianapolis art all year long. This one night only event takes brings together a variety of Indianapolis artists working in different mediums to show Indianapolis people the scope of art happening in the Circle City. Oranje’s tenth annual juried exhibition of contemporary art and progressive music is now seeking submissions from Indianapolis people. Be part of the Indianapolis art scene as you share your work with fellow Hoosiers.

Oranje asks applicants to submit examples of their work for consideration. Because this event is juried, there are only a limited number of spots for artists and musicians selected to participate. Oranje is seeking a wide variety of work from progressive musicians to artists in a variety of media. All participants must be twenty one years of age or older and must provide a valid identification to participate. The deadline to submit work in May 31, 2011!

Oranje encourages artists and musicians to push the boundaries of their own imagination, hoping to create an environment of pure unbridled creativity. Each artist selected to participate will be asked to create a “booth” that represents their creativity and artistic identity. Artists will be given plenty of time prior to the event to build their booth design in the Oranje space. Artists are also encouraged to create art during the event in their booth, to promote the interactive nature of this event. There will also be access to electricity in each ten foot by ten foot booth space, but artists are required to provide their own lighting. In addition, there is a $100 “booth fee” for all participants. At the event, artists keep 100% of any sales made and are responsible for all transactions.
Musicians will be scheduled into a thirty minute times slot on one of multiple stages. Details of performances (i.e. load in, load out, compensation, etc.) will be worked out after all artists have been selected. With an annual attendance of more than 3,500 Indianapolis people, Oranje is a great place for both veteran and emerging artists to engage with a culturally diverse audience.
