The City Lights Gallery is planning a parade of kinetic art — art that contains moving parts — in September. But first, they need kinetic art.
If you’re an artist and you want to take part, email a jpg showing the work, plus its title and your name, to email@example.com by Sept. 1. Make it 72 dpi and no larger than 1,000 x 1,000 pixels large. It’s even better if you can link to a YouTube video.
The physical piece cannot be larger than seven feet tall or 10 feet long and will have to fit through the City Lights doors, which are 82 inches tall by 33 inches wide. It could be pieced together once inside the gallery, says Suzanne Kachmar, the gallery’s director.
The submission fee is $25 for the first entry, $10 for each additional entry.
But you’ll more than win that back if you win. The first prize is $765.43, provided by the Aquarion Water Co.
A “People’s Choice” award gets you $210.98. Jurors are Gregory Clark or Artifact Gallery in Wilton and Suzanne Shutanof of Go-Go Art Consulting.
