Aspen, Colo. – November 8, 2022 – The Red Brick Center for the Arts is accepting submissions for artwork that will be on display in Aspen's City Hall. Selected artworks will be exhibited for a two-year period between May 2023 and April 2025. The deadline for submission is December 2, 2022. 

Artworks are selected by the Red Brick Center for the Arts Gallery Committee and must meet specific criteria, including and not limited to: 

  • Pieces must be created by artists who currently live in Colorado. 
  • Mediums must be paint, print, photography, drawing, textile, collage, bas-relief, ceramic, mosaic, and/or metal.
  • Works must be equipped to be hung on a wall and have an eight-inch maximum depth.

In addition, artworks should encourage an inclusive representation of experiences and voices and present a broad range of artistic and cultural expressions. Special consideration will be given to pieces that loosely relate to several key concepts such as the local and regional environment and connectivity. Additional information, including a statement of work, is required with each submission.

Selected artists will be notified in January 2023 and will be awarded a stipend for their participation.

Background
In 2021, the City of Aspen opened its newly constructed City Hall which houses City Council Chambers, City staff office space, and community meeting rooms. Incorporating artwork into City Hall offers those that work in the building and those who visit the building a chance to reflect on the ideas proposed by artists, supports public discourse, and visually represents the openness and encouragement of having a multitude of voices and experiences in the governmental process.
