Open Call for Artists

Florence Night Out (FNO) seeks local artists interested in creating pop-up art installations at this May’s FNO. Artists will have the opportunity to transform portable moving/storage pods (from a local business) into one-night-only, individual art installation/performance spaces.

The pods will be situated throughout the Florence village center and open to audiences during the spring FNO event:

Friday, May 6
5:00pm-8:00pm

Thanks to funding from local business, we can offer artists a modest $50 stipend.

ABOUT THE PODS
We can show projection, hang artwork, and seat 4 chairs per pod for audience members. We’ll have the pods available a few days before the event in order to prep and we can help you address any needs in terms of audio/visual equipment, transport of work, and electrical power supply, etc. Pod dimensions are approximately 6x7x7.

In addition to the small pods available through this open call, 5 large pods will be placed throughout the village and feature of the work of previously selected artists. 

ABOUT FLORENCE NIGHT OUT
Florence Night Out offers lovers of art, music, dance, film and local businesses a fun, free event to help celebrate community. Florence is a great mix of Valley old-timers, young families, and stray art lovers (like myself). This spring’s event will be the the 5th in this new annual series and marks the return of Donnabelle Casis and Carla Costa as art curators for the event.
