Call for Entries: Digital media artists wanted for Create Denver's Frame of Mind 2011
Looking ahead to the citywide Create Denver arts blowout in May, the Downtown Denver Partnership and Denver Theatre District are teaming up to put the work of some Denver digital media artists up in lights -- really big ones -- on the giant outdoor LED screen at 14th and Champa streets at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
And the call is out: The coalition is seeking submissions of original motion-based works of 15 to 60 seconds in length for the May 13 program, MASS MEDIA: Seeing, Making, Mapping, which includes a symposium, a reception and a big public screening in the streets, which will also include DOCA-sponsored video mapping projections on the surrounding building walls. It's going to be a light-show on the grandest scale, and you WILL be square if you aren't there.
The DTD has already been experimenting in putting up local art on the new DPAC Jumbotron this month, as evidenced by these segueing images of wheat-pasted artwork from the Month of Photography's huge The Big Picture exhibition.
And the city is alive right now with moving pictures! So, here's our suggestion: If you are an artist in digital media, drop by the Denver Art Museum's timely Blink! electronic and video media extravaganza (up until May 1) for inspiration.
Can you do this?

And then go for it. Entries must be formatted to the DPAC screen's specifications and submitted by April 22 with a $10 entry fee, contact information and bio to: DTD Frame of Mind, c/o Plus Gallery, 2501 Larimer Street, Denver CO 80205. Then, include a CD/DVD with the entry or e-mail the completed digital files to email@example.com with "Frame of Mind" in the subject line. And wait. Notifications will be made by May 1, and the top juried submission wins a $250 cash prize. Artists, begin digitizing...
