The Bloomfield Avenue Prize winner will mount an exhibition running approximately three months, and will participate in five non-consecutive days of educational community programming for groups such as schools, families, undergraduate and graduate students, adults, and/or seniors. Artists should develop socially engaged projects that consider the shared concerns of the Bloomfield College and Montclair Art Museum communities;
Projects should take full advantage of the shared resources at BC and MAM, which includes indoor and outdoor exhibition venues and work facilities for the artist. Production of projects will also draw in-kind resources from both institutions, including an interdisciplinary advisory committee and student assistants. There will be an open house to view the available sites and resources on October 5, 2012, from 2–5 p.m. EST. Please RSVP to Kimberly Fisher, curatorial assistant, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1, 2012.
The selection committee co-chairs for this prize are Alexandra Schwartz, curator of contemporary art at the Montclair Art Museum, and Laura Nova, associate professor of creative art and technology at Bloomfield College. Applications are due November 1, 2012 and the winner will be announced in late 2012. The prize is $5,500 USD.
