East Main Street Roundabout – Norman, OK - December 15,
The Norman Public Arts Board (PAB), on behalf of the Norman Arts Council and the City of Norman, seeks an artist (or team of artists) to create a permanent, public outdoor work of art for the center island of the East Main Street Roundabout, which will be located on East Main between Porter/Classen and NE 12th Street at the intersection of Main, Acres, and Carter. The center of the roundabout will be 29.5' in diameter. The base of the art piece shall fit within a fifteen foot diameter in the center of the island. Appropriate landscaping will be designed to complement the work of art. As pedestrian traffic is limited to the sidewalks and bicycle paths adjacent to the intersection, there is no access to the center island. The sculpture should be durable and safe as well as weather resistant and vandalism resistant. The goal of this project is to create a focal point of this heavily trafficked intersection that visually anchors one of Norman's older residential neighborhoods with busy streets that link to a variety of destinations. The installation should embody a theme representative of central Oklahoma. This theme could relate to any of the following, but not limited to: Oklahoma weather, Native American heritage, civic character, complexity of a university city, cultural diversity of the third largest city in the state, the pioneer spirit, and the natural habitats or environment of the area. The style of the sculpture may be a traditional, architectural, figurative, or contemporary interpretation of the theme and may be of any material. www.normanarts.org

Elsewhere Artist Collaborative
2008 residencies for artists, writers, and cultural producers Elsewhere, an arts production site and experimental museum in downtown Greensboro, NC, is seeking artists, writers, and cultural producers for residencies during its Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons. Set within a former thrift store housing a 58-year collection of American surplus, thrift, and antiques, Elsewhere invites experimental creators to utilize the immense collection of objects to pursue site-specific material, conceptual, and/or technologically-based projects. Elsewhere's building—two storefronts on the ground floor, a 14-room boarding house on the second, and warehouse on the third—provides dynamic architectures for the creation and installation of works. Artists live and work within transforming installations; these interactive environments become platforms for re-conceptualizing the theory and practice of art-making as an ongoing process of exchange in community. Experimenting with museum-as-medium within a store where nothing is for sale, Elsewhere offers an unparalleled framework for art practices, processes, and productions outside the traditional gallery, museum, and residency systems. The complete call for artists, residency brochure (PDF), and application deadlines are available at www.elsewhereelsewhere.org/residencies.html. Email George Scheer, Collaborative Director, at email@example.com for an application. Spring: April 1st to May 31st (final deadline January 25th 5pm) Summer: June 1st to August 31st (final deadline February 22nd 5pm) Fall: September 1st to October 31st (final deadline May 23rd 5pm)

Fargo Film Festival, March 3-7, 2009
In November of 1999, a group of film lovers, filmmakers and educators, along with tourism specialists, theatre volunteers and staff members, gathered at the newly restored Fargo Theatre to discuss the possibility of a Fargo Film Festival, as well as the selection of the Fargo Theatre as a site for the 2000 Library of Congress Film Preservation Tour. In March of 2000, with a great deal of guidance and insight from the passionate, film-obsessed teacher Ted Larson, the theatre celebrated the rich history of film with selections from the prestigious Library of Congress collection. Actor Janet Leigh attended our week-long celebration and proved a most elegant guest. The success of the Library of Congress tour fueled the fire for an annual Fargo Film Festival. Ted Larson died unexpectedly in November of 2000, but his spirit prevailed and the Fargo Film Festival became a reality in March of 2001. Since then, the festival has grown significantly from 30 submissions in 2001 to its current average of more than 150 submissions from 28 states and 6 countries. The Fargo Theatre’s storied history, 21st century technology, and beautifully restored art deco decor anchor the festival. Submissions are arriving daily for the 2009 Fargo Film Festival. If you are a moviemaker seeking an opportunity to have your work judged for competition in North Dakota’s premier film festival, complete an entry form and send us your work. The festival’s regular postmark deadline is January 1, 2009 ($30 Standard Entry Fee, $20 Student Entry Fee); late postmark deadline is January 10, 2009 ($40 Standard Entry Fee, $30 Student Entry Fee).

Feb – Call For Entries Artists of All Mediums: Circulation
The strength and value in art is located not solely in its visuality, but also in its ability to circulate as an object, or at the most basic level- its grounds in a circulating idea. Within a tiny droplet of blood, there are some 5 million red blood cells. It takes about 20 seconds for each of these red blood cells to circle the whole body. These red blood cells will each make approximately 250,000 round trips of the body before being replaced by another red blood cell. USA Today has a daily circulation of 2,528,437. In one year, that amounts to 922,879,505 reads. By the end of the Civil War, between one-third and one-half of all U.S. paper currency in circulation was counterfeit. The ice age cycles were influenced by changes in ocean circulation arising from changes in the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. Booksmart Studio is seeking submission of artist works that confront, explore, exploit, challenge, and investigate the modes, methods, and effects of circulation. Keeping in line with the diverse modes of circulation and dissemination, the exhibition is open to all mediums. The deadline for entry is March 28, 2008. Visit http://www.booksmartstudio.com for details and entry form. For more information please contact email@example.com

Tilt Gallery in collaboration with Donor Network of Arizona will be hosting an exhibition and silent auction dedicated to Organ/Tissue Donor Awareness and Education. The exhibition, titled 'Exponential Love: the gift of life', will take place, April 4, . This will be the Third annual Exhibit.

This event is very near and dear to our hearts. For those of you who may or may not know the Tilt Gallery family, our lives have been touched and transformed by organ donation. In1996, sister Tanya Held had developed end stage kidney disease as a result of diabetic complications over the span of twenty years. Tanya’s sisters, Melanie Craven and Michelle Craven were both ready to unselfishly save Tanya’s life by donating one of their kidneys. On November 20, 1997, Michelle Craven donated one her kidneys to Tanya saving her life. Each day many die waiting for an organ transplant. This is our effort to heal, connect and save the lives of others. We are seeking artists who would like to assist us in this effort by donating a piece that expresses the gift of life theme of the exhibit. All pieces will be up for bid in the silent auction with a “buy it now” option. Proceeds from art sales will be donated to Donor Network of Arizona. The criteria options for donating a piece are as follows: Create a piece that shares a personal story or experience about organ donation. Create a piece that shares a story or experience of someone whose life could be or has been touched by organ/tissue donation. Donate an existing piece of work that communicates or expresses the theme of the exhibit.
Artists interested please contact Tilt as soon as possible. We need to confirm your donation of by March 1, 2008. All donated pieces need to be delivered to Tilt Gallery by Monday April 2 Please contact Melanie Craven or Michelle Craven for further information at 602.716.5667 or by email at: Melanie@tiltgallery.com

Typical communities include ethnic, tribal, occupational, regional, or religious groups. For a more complete definition of Folk & Traditional Arts, please go to: http://www.iowaartscouncil.org/programs/folk-and-traditional-arts/purpose-and-services.shtml. Who are folk and traditional artists? Folk and traditional artists are individuals from a particular cultural, ethnic, occupational, regional, religious or other self-identified group who produce, pass on, and preserve living folk and traditional art forms that reflect the identity of that group, e.g. Meskwaki dancers, Lao weavers, Mennonite quilters, or Irish bagpipers. What is folk-inspired art? Folk-inspired art is produced by individuals and groups who are not part of the culture group that originally produced the art form at issue, regardless of the quality of the art. Folk-inspired art projects are not eligible in the Folk & Traditional Arts Major and Mini Grants category. Folk-inspired art and artists, including revivalist projects, artists presenting or performing work from a culture/community other than their own, etc., should select a different grant category. If you are unsure of the appropriate category, contact the IAC’s Folklife Coordinator (contact information at top of this page). Eligible types of requests Projects may include but are not limited to: o Folk & Traditional Arts apprenticeships, which assist in preserving Iowa’s living traditional arts by providing grants to Master Artists to teach qualified Iowa apprentices (must be planned using the structure of the IAC Folk & Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Model ).(Note: Folk and traditional artists interested in applying for apprenticeship funding are strongly urged to contact the folklife coordinator before applying.); o Documention of a particular living musical style, craft tradition, or other folk art in Iowa (Hint: Documentation projects should focus on a recognized living folk & traditional art and have a public component such as a performance, exhibit, archival collection, or publication.); o Production costs for a quality produced audio CD or video recording; o Fees and related costs for presenting a traditional artist in a school or community; or o The presentation of a folklife festival, multicultural day, or diversity day that focuses on living folk and traditional art forms. Grant Amount You may request up to $10,000 for a Major Grant or up to $1,500 for a Mini Grant, but no more than 50 percent of the total expenses of the project. Apprenticeship applications may use both the Master Artist’s and the Apprentice’s time as inkind match in lieu of cash.

The Folk Arts Program is devoted to perpetuating New York State's living cultural heritage of folk arts. Its primary purpose is to support traditions practiced within communities. It also supports programming that enables general audiences to experience traditional arts from New York State as well as cultures elsewhere in the world. By definition, folk arts are traditional cultural expressions through which a group maintains and passes on its shared way of life. They express a group's sense of beauty, identity, and values. Folk arts are usually learned informally through performance, by example, or in oral traditions among families, friends, neighbors and co-workers rather than through formal education. Never static, folk arts change as they are adapted to new circumstances while they maintain their traditional qualities. Traditional folk arts are practiced within and among ethnic, regional, occupational, and religious groups as well as other kinds of communities with a common identity. They include performing traditions in music, dance, and drama; traditional storytelling and other verbal arts; festivals; traditional crafts, visual arts, architecture, the adornment and transformation of the built environment, and other kinds of material folk culture. The Program emphasizes the protection of the rights of folk artists and the assurance of adequate compensation. The Program supports projects that are developed in close consultation and collaboration with the communities and artists whose traditions are to be presented. Support is not available for programming involving artists who appropriate, interpret, or revive the traditions of other communities. The Program emphasizes support for presentations grounded in the traditional modes of practicing folk art, and not programming involving choreography, theatricalization, or stylization that significantly alters traditions. Audience development should be directed within as well as outside of the communities represented in an activity. Projects are expected to include interpretive components, such as program booklets or other publications, websites, lecture/demonstrations, spoken introductions to performances, and interpretive signage to aid appreciation and understanding of a tradition's meaning and contexts. Applicants are encouraged to use folklorists, ethnomusicologists, or other specialists for documentation, program development, interpretation of presentations, and program production. The Program encourages collaborative initiatives carried out on a regional or statewide basis among folk arts programs, and welcomes new applicants.

Grants for Schools
Children are natural artists. They draw, paint, sing, dance, write and tell stories, pretend to be someone else. Their world is all about imagining and exploring. Arts learning and artistic expression fuel a child's natural creativity. They also helps young people be better students in other subjects. Research shows that students who study the arts have higher academic achievement and higher SAT scores than other students. Arts activities build self-confidence, and reinforce students’ critical thinking and discipline. The Minnesota State Arts Board Arts in Education (AIE) program is designed to encourage and expand young people’s natural interest and abilities in arts activities. It helps deliver high-quality, hands-on, creative arts learning opportunities for students; and gives teachers new tools and model arts learning activities to incorporate into their classrooms.
