Creativity. Community. Collaboration.
The Art Collab Project was created to help connect artists working in different mediums to create a unifying collaboration piece. The idea is to help get to know other artists and build connections in our community and inspire each other to try something new. Artists are paired randomly to make the experience fun. Think of it as a mystery vending machine, just for artists! You might be a sculptor paired with a photographer, or an oil painter paired with a print maker. The most important part of this experience is to have fun, use your imagination and get to know another creator in your community!
A digital book will be made and given to all participants. Artists retain the rights to their work and teams will have the opportunity to share their experiences.
Introductory emails go out August 2021
Open to all emerging and established artists who reside in the Detroit/Metro-Detroit Area over the age of 18.
**The rules are simple but are key to making this a success**
1. SIGN UP
Artists fill out the participation form, along with a few sample images (the info provided will be used to send out initial introduction emails) Names will be paired at random, based on experience level (when applicable).
2. ARTIST INTRODUCTION
Artist's will introduce themselves to their new collab partner using the contact info each person provides in their application.
3. TEAM CHECK-IN
Artist teams may chose to come up with an artist alter ego. For example, a Picasso and Van Gogh may have called themselves VanCasso or Picogh. Once a name is decided on, each team must check in. (A check-in form will be emailed after collab drawings are made)
It's each artist's responsibility to collaborate with their partner by the method of their choosing (phone, email, telepathically, in-person, etc) to create a plan and execute their Art Collab. Teams will have 4 weeks to complete and submit after team check-in. More time may be granted for bigger projects, if needed.
Artists may choose to create any artwork that's agreeable. This can be done digitally, by mail or in-person, depending on what the team agrees on or the proximity of each artists location. The ways an artwork can be executed is limitless but the idea is to get out of your comfort zone and have fun.
6. SHARE YOUR COLLABS!
Teams will get a chance to talk about their collaboration and share their work. Digital books will be available Fall of 2021.
Updates will be emailed as the Art Collab Project develops and grows. Tell a friend!
This is a free even to participate. Complimentary digital books provided by Boggess Art.
