SJC & Pro Arts Collaborate on Art Eat-UP 2013

Art Project Proposals Sought for Art Eat-Up Fundraising Dinner

Pro Arts is currently seeking proposals for the dinner. Proposals for work in all visual art media will be considered, but each candidate must demonstrate the feasibility of their project, indicate how they will use the grant and pledge to document the progress of their project as it is executed.

In conjunction with Sustainable JC (SJC), Pro Arts is also looking for eco-art installations that engage the community, get local businesses to invest, celebrates existing community assets and also benefits the environment in some way. SJC says possible venues for these installations include the upcoming Five Corners EcoVillage District, local schools or a local park. For complete details on the call for eco-art, click here or contact SJC’s Debra Italiano.
