Call for Artists for Exhibition Opportunities in City Hall Atrium Gallery


Bloomington, Ind. - The City of Bloomington Entertainment and Arts District (BEAD) is seeking artists for the 2015 Atrium Exhibition Program. Slots are currently available for March, July and September 2015.


The Atrium exhibition space is best suited for two-dimensional works, but three-dimensional works may be considered as well. Exhibitions are typically one month in length and public viewing hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., as well as additional evening and weekend hours when City Hall is open for meetings and events. Artists may submit a digital portfolio of works for consideration to Assistant Economic Development Director for the Arts Miah Michaelsen at michaelm@bloomington.in.gov.

The Atrium exhibition program is another effort under the City's strategy to leverage and expand the economic development potential of the arts in Bloomington. According to the 2012 Americans for the Arts study, "Arts and Economic Prosperity IV," Bloomington's nonprofit arts sector contributes $72.3 million to the local economy annually through direct spending by arts organizations and their audiences.

For more information on the 2015 Atrium Exhibition Program, please contact Assistant Economic Development Director for the Arts Miah Michaelsen 349.3534 or michaelm@bloomington.in.gov.
