Eligibility:

The Dairy Arts Center in Boulder, Colorado invites artists’ proposals for a new public artwork for a permanent public art sculpture dedicated to Indigenous people in our community and region. The intent is to acknowledge the traditional Indigenous inhabitants of the land occupied by the Dairy.

“Acknowledgment is a critical public intervention, a necessary step toward honoring Native communities and enacting the much larger project of decolonization and reconciliation. Join us in adopting, calling for, and spreading this practice.” – Honor Native Land: a guide and call to acknowledgment, US Department of Arts & Culture

A selection committee of Indigenous community members, artists and activists will lead the Dairy in the review and selection of the proposals. When a final proposal is selected, the Visual Arts curator will work with and support the selected artist(s) in the production of the project, from
technical development to engagement. The completed work shall be installed in time to honor Indigenous Peoples Day, 2020. This call is open to Indigenous artists only. The selected artist will receive up to $10,000 for time and materials. Additional funding for installation or other needs will be considered.

Boulder Dairy Arts Center 2021 Call for Artists

Eligibility:

The Dairy’s Visual Art Jury is an eleven-member committee comprised of artists, curators, university faculty and art collectors. Following the close of this year’s call, applications will be reviewed by the Dairy’s Curator of Visual Arts and this jury to select individual artists and groups of artists to exhibit in the Dairy's four galleries during the period defined above. 

Most exhibitions are 6 weeks in length and are rotated in all 4 galleries at the same time. Exhibitions in all four galleries are usually planned around the same idea, concept, medium or artist. This provides greater context for all the work and the viewer is able to experience a narrative throughout the entire space. You may be accepted for a solo exhibition or become a part of a group exhibition.

In addition to accepting applications from artists and arts organizations, a non-artist member of the public, may submit a proposal for an exhibition of work by an artist or group of artists from any state or any country. The person submitting the curated exhibition proposal will be considered the exhibitor and will be responsible for the exhibition as described in the “Legal Agreement” section of this prospectus. If a submission for a curated group exhibition is invited for exhibition the curator of the exhibition proposal will work directly with the Dairy’s Curator of Visual Arts on the exhibition and the Dairy’s Curator will have final approval of all matters, including hanging and curation of the exhibition.

Artists may not bring an exhibition to the Dairy that has been shown in the Boulder area in the 12 months prior to a Dairy exhibition. However, individual works that have been shown at other venues in the area may be included in a different exhibition at the Dairy within a 12 month period. It is encouraged that work exhibited at the Dairy shall be no more than three years old at the time of exhibit although exceptions may be made by the Dairy’s Jury and/or Curator. Please note that the Dairy Galleries are not equipped to exhibit art jewelry at this time. For an exhibition of art jewelry, the exhibiting artist or arts organization must work with the Curator in obtaining display cases and materials at the exhibitor's expense.

Founded in 1992, the Dairy Arts Center is a multi-disciplinary, not-for-profit, cultural arts organization housed in the historic Watts-Hardy Dairy building in Boulder, Colo. which operated as a dairy storage and processing plant in the 1960's and 70's. Since 1997 when the Dairy Arts Center’s original three galleries were built, the Dairy's visual art program has grown in recognition throughout Colorado and the United States. A major renovation of the building  from August 2015 - August 2016 provided a fourth gallery along with improved lighting and exhibition facilities in the existing three galleries. In addition to the galleries the Dairy Arts Center also manages three live performance spaces and an art house cinema. Each year, the Dairy hosts over 200,000 arts experience for people of all ages who come to experience visual art exhibitions, artists’ talks, and art workshops, as well as theater, dance, music, and film.
