Norfolk, Virginia – The Norfolk Public Art Commission seeks to commission an artist to design a commemoration that will tell the story and educate viewers of the history and importance of the End of the Massive Resistance. The committee is not looking for specific representation but hopes the work will communicate a depth of feeling, meaning and human understanding of this time and history. The final artwork should communicate the past and what was, be thought-provoking and challenging but also look to the future with inspiration and communicate our hopes as a community and a higher ideal. The selected artist will be work closely with the community to understand the history of this significant event, the changing race relations and what it means to Norfolk.
Project Funds: Up to five finalists will be selected to be interviewed by the public art planning committee and paid $1,000 to make a presentation to the committee. This includes all travel, preparation and interview.
One artist will be selected for the project. An additional $32,000 is available for the final complete design phase. The budget for the completed and installed artwork is $500,000 at this time, however significant private sector fundraising is anticipated.

About Arm to Arm
Arm2Arm, Inc. is a non profit organization under the provisions of IRS Code of 1954 (501)c (3). It is the purpose of Arm2Arm, Inc. to provide medical and educational assistance to the stateless Haitian sugar cane workers who live in appalling poverty in the bateyes (or shantytowns) of the Dominican Republic and in Haiti and who currently have limited access to essential human services. Since the earthquake struck, ARM2ARM is more determined than ever to bring their medical expertise and emergency and medical supplies to Haiti.
On January 29th, a medical delegation of doctors, physician assistants, nurses, translators organized by ARM2ARM will depart for a week-long trip to Haiti. The group will travel to the Dominican Republic first, and take the bus to Haiti the next day, where they will provide free medical and emergency relief to the many citizens of the earthquake-ravaged island. This medical mission will take place on the ground-level, where the group will be staying in tents, setting up medical clinics and providing aid to those that are in need. It is also the mission of the group to reach villages outside of the capital city, where relief has yet to reach. The group will also distribute foods, hygiene supplies, clothes.

If selected you must be present at E32 to discuss your work. We present jpgs in the same format used by NYFA.

* The maximum size for each file is 4.0 MB – this refers to the size of the file when it is saved as a .JPG, not when opened in a program such as Photoshop.

Tradtional Media artists may submit a curated shows. This allows them to fine tune a curatorial project before submitting it to other art venues. For artists who have shows outside of NYC, this offers a chance to present their work and celebrate/have an opening in New York. E32 creates 3-minute video for these shows. See Archives for examples. With the artists permission these videos are later presented in art windows, art bars, etc. Some time saving notes:
E32 is not ageist. We enjoy the energy of the work of younger artist and the depth of mature artists, but we do not show undergraduate work.
If you make a video of yourself painting or a slide show of still images, it is not art video. Please submit your work as still images. That said, with new media there are always exceptions.
If you commit to a presentation and then find you can’t attend let us know as soon as possible and will reschedule you. We will not show your work without your participation.
This project is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

U.S. SENATOR WHITEHOUSE, STATE EDUCATION COMMISSIONER GIST AND OTHERS TO ANNOUNCE NEW STATE ARTS COUNCIL GRANT PROGRAM TO BENEFIT STUDENTS
New Program Will Help Pay for School Buses for Students To Attend
Arts & Cultural Events
Monday, January 25, 2010
Lobby of the Providence Performing Arts Center
220 Weybosset Street, Providence, RI
U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Lt. Governor Elizabeth Roberts, State Representative Peter Kilmartin, Providence Mayor David Cicilline, State Education Commissioner Deborah Gist and Rhode Island Philharmonic resident conductor Francisco Noya will join to announce a new grant opportunity from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts to help pay for school buses for students to attend arts and cultural events during the school day.
While math and science can best be learned in the classroom or laboratory, the arts – a core subject area in Rhode Island schools – must be experienced where it exists. One significant way that young people learn about the arts is through direct engagement with high-quality art experiences in museums and in the concert hall. This new program, paid for out of federal funds received by the State Arts Council, will help financially-challenged schools continue to provide this opportunity to their students.
The press conference will open with two a capella selections by the East Providence High School Select Choral Ensemble, under the direction of MaryAnn Lasorsa.
