Free One-year storage for several paintings

Want your work to hang in a neglected hallway in City Hall for 12 months? Read on!

Co-curators Max Boyd Harrison and Jim Prell are currently accepting submissions for two-dimensional artwork to be on display in the Houston City Hall Annex Building housing City Council, Homeland Security and Building Services among others. The 12-month exhibition will be installed in the hallways and conference rooms located on the lower floors of the Annex at 900 Bagby Street.

Artists who currently reside, work, teach, were born, or received their education in the Houston area are encouraged to submit up to two entries for consideration.

All submissions should be framed and ready to hang -- i.e. wall ready, no self leveling or saw-toothed hangers. The duration of the exhibition is 12-months beginning May 2009.

Entries will be accepted from now until May 8, 2009 at 6 pm. When submitting entries, please include name, contact info, title, year produced, dimensions and medium.
