Art in Public Spaces (AIPS) 2020

Thank you for your interest in Art in Public Spaces.

We are currently not taking in any artwork for this program.

Keep an eye on our Members of the Week Newsletter and social media posts for future announcements.

Criteria
  1. Exhibition length – one year.
  2. Medium to large and extra-large pieces are recommended.
  3. Pieces will be chosen with careful consideration of emotional impact on patients and visitors at the location they will be displayed in the Clinic or Airport.
  4. We are using a hanging system similar to the one we have at the Old Courthouse with hooks that have a security “latch” to discourage theft of all artwork on display.
  5. Hanging Requirements – Use d-rings on the back of the frame to hang from. Make sure to place each of them the same distance from the top of the work (one quarter to one third of the way down from the top) and in from the edge. You can use a picture wire between the d-rings – pull it relatively tight.
  6. Works that are for sale will be available for purchase through our KAC office or online. There is no registration fee to participate in this art show. Any sales will be split with 70% proceeds going to the artist and 30% commission to KAC so please price your work accordingly.
  7. Artists will be contacted in case of a sale and may be asked to provide a replacement piece of artwork if required.
  8. Artists will be required to volunteer for installation, strike (take down), or art intake, and will be notified upon selection.
  9. Artists are required to fill out the submission form for the AIPS program.
