artist exchange program

This is something worth making the trip out to pontiac for! A step towards making change in detroit: bringing artists from other states and in return showing our artists there. Not a bad idea, eh?
MONA saturday 6-8pm

As a follow-up, the museum will be creating an on-line artist registry for Michigan artists. A Detroit Codex, of sorts. To create a database from which to draw artists whose work will be chosen for future city-swaps, starting with Chicago's ThreeWalls Gallery.

Artists are invited to visit the museum (email ahead if possible) on Fridays from 2 to 5pm: bring along a CD with (up to 10) images and a few hardcopies of work examples.

A group of three jurors will curate the online registry and traveling shows.

The CD's will be put into the museum archives for our own reference for future shows.

If there seems to be enough support-base here, the museum will continue to pursue site venues in other cities for potential swaps in the coming months.

Thanks,

Correction:

Artists may bring an image CD and hardcopies Saturdays between 2 and 5p to MONA. These artists will be considered for future traveling shows.
