Seek Scenic Art for
For the first time, the 2010 USITT Conference & Stage
Expo will have exhibit space large enough to include an exhibit of scenic
art work. Scenic artists from all aspects of the entertainment industry
and from all levels of expertise, both student and professional, are
invited to submit work for From the Hand of A Scenic, a large format
scene painting exhibition March 31 to April 2 at the Kansas City Convention & Entertainment
Facilities, Kansas City, Missouri.
There will be two areas and formats
for display. One area will include 8 by 8 foot panels on which
smaller pieces may be attached, and the other area consists of 72
feet of pipe, about 12 feet tall, allowing for small backdrop displays.
All submissions must be on soft goods with finished edges. Pieces
to be hung on the pipe must have grommets and ties. See the application
form for more important information
Scenic art has been well served by many sessions
and Professional Development Workshops but it became apparent at the
last annual conference that there was a need to display scenic work alongside
Design Expo and other exhibits.
