Call Summary:

CDCP is pleased to request submissions on behalf of The Century Group and Desmone Architects.  Select professional artists are invited to submit samples of work to be considered for permanent installation at the Tryp by Wyndham Hotel. The project is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion in early 2019.

 

Submission Deadline: July 30th, 2018 11:59pm EST

 

 

ELIGIBILITY

This submission process is open to select professional artists, artisans or artist-led teams currently residing and legally permitted to work in the United States, specifically the greater Pittsburgh area. Artists must be invited to apply; this is not an open call.

 

PROJECT SUMMARY

The Century Group is working with Desmone Architects and CDCP to select artworks for the individual rooms of an upcoming TRYP by Wyndham hotel. The building site is the former Washington Trade School, and its history will inform the design of the hotel, with each floor focusing on a trade that was taught at the school.

 

Individual artists or art collectives are invited to submit up to 5 samples of 2D works (originals or reproductions are welcome) up to 18" x 24" in size. Individual works must be available for under $80 (without framing). All sale money goes directly to the artist.

 

Digital samples are due by July 30th. Decisions should be available within a month of submission and actual work may be needed in the fall. (Select artworks may be invited to be hung for a model room in early August)

 

ARTISTIC OBJECTIVES

Choice of media and imagery for the rooms is broad but should be a material suitable for a family friendly environment. Selected artists will have the potential to sell up to 30 artworks for the individual rooms and may be invited to submit larger works for public spaces in the hotel.

 

Medium: Two-dimensional pieces that will be mounted on the walls. Pieces should not come away from the wall more than 4” inches, due to ADA limit of protruding objects. 

 

 

SELECTION PROCESS

Artist and/or artist teams may submit their work for consideration as defined below. Emails will be sent to the selected artist with details of the commission process. Everyone will be notified of their status by September 2018.

 

Do not submit unless you have been contacted by CDCP, Desmone Architects or the Century Group.
