SNAG - Call for Entries

  • SNAG will celebrate its 50th Anniversary next year at the 2019 Chicago conference, The Loop: Coming Full Circle. The Exhibition in Motion (EiM) committee is seeking works that reflect this milestone. The EiM is a runway-type live exhibition event that takes place at the conference.

    How do you see gold? Glitz, glam, indulgent, excessive, subtle or even demure? Gold goes beyond a material, it is a color, a signifier and a feeling. Translate the idea of gold literally, or let it transport you to a golden place.

    As always you must, GO BIG–think feet, not inches. All works will be presented on live models and must be large scale and easily viewed from a runway. 

    Submissions of all kinds are allowed, from completed works to sketched proposals. The goal of the EiM committee is to present a selection of works that exemplifies and celebrates the diversity of the SNAG community.

    Collaborations, class projects and international applications are encouraged! AURUM is open to all from the beginner to professional. All are encouraged to apply.

    Become part of the legacy, apply by October 18, 2018. Entry form located at bottom of this page.

    If your piece is selected, please note:

    *Artists may recruit their own model, however pieces must be ADJUSTABLE or made to fit ANY BODY SIZE.

    *Artists do not have to be present at the conference or event; Pieces can be shipped. Shipping costs to and from the exhibition are the responsibility of the artist(s).

    *All pieces must be made to either be worn or carried by a model(s). Models will be in the work for 2+ hours so wearability and durability are of extreme importance.

    *Objects must be large and easily visible from a distance.

    *Artist(s) receive free admission to the Exhibition in Motion AURUM: The Golden Year.
