BOOM Universe Window Artist Call 2021
In an effort to share art in a safe and socially distant way, BOOM Concepts is launching “BOOM DISPLAY”, a public facing storefront window display project that centers black, queer, and femme makers. Artists, artists collaborations, community organizations, activists, neighborhood groups, are all invited to submit a one page proposal outlining a window installation/display concept. BOOM Concepts will select 3-6 concepts to occupy 2 windows (Dimensions: large 69’’H X 105’’W and small 69”H X 53”W) at BOOM Concepts (5139 Penn Avenue Pittsburgh PA 15224). The storefront is located within 100 feet of a stoplight at the intersection of Evaline and Penn Avenue within the highly trafficked Penn Avenue Arts and Business District in the neighborhood of Garfield.
Approximately 3-6 artists (and/or artist teams) will be selected to manifest their designs over a period of 30-60 days. Priority will be given to designs that celebrate, uplift, and prioritize Garfield as a neighborhood. BOOM DISPLAY centers Black, Brown, Queer, and Femme practitioners. The program includes a $100 artist stipend and direct support around supply acquisition, installation, and documentation of the project.
