Call #1

The following call for artists of all practices is presented by Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix with support provided by Artlink Inc. 

BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW 

When Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix first opened its doors in 2012, local art was central to the design of the property and has debuted the next evolution of its “Art in Motion” theme with ARTLAB, powered by Artlink.

Located on the second-floor of the hotel’s Living Room, the pop-up art studio will be transformed into a different exhibit every six weeks as a new artist in residence uses the space to bring their artwork to life.

Project: ARTLAB Residency

Address: 2 E. Jefferson St., Phoenix, AZ, 85004.

Request: A working artist studio residency in the Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix, located in CityScape in the heart of downtown Phoenix. This call is for the selection of up to three artist residencies that will take place throughout 2019.

Overview: The ARTLAB is an opportunity to work in a public art studio prominently positioned in the Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix. Featuring large saloon-style doors fabricated by local artist Doug Boyd of Artfully Rogue, ARTLAB is a working studio space designed with the needs of an artist in mind, including lighting, storage, exhibition space, and a customized moveable platform that serves as a splatter-ready studio floor.

Submissions deadline: Wednesday, August 7, 2019 5:00pm Local Arizona Time
