A TEMPORARY ART EXHIBIT IN WARREN OHIO– SEPTEMBER 2019.
ARTIST PROJECT PROPOSAL Now Available click this link: Occupied 2.0 Artist Application and Info
The Fine Arts Council of Trumbull County (FACT), the Trumbull
Neighborhood Partnership (TNP), and the Trumbull County Land Bank
(TCLB) are partnering once again to host a public art exhibition, Occupied
2.0, a follow up to last year’s popular Occupied Warren art project.
Occupied 2.0 will create a temporary exhibition in a vacant, blighted house,
located in one of Warren’s neighborhoods, which will include works of art
created, installed, developed, revealed, or performed by local artists
exploring this year’s theme of Fairy Tale & Fantasy. Artists will also be
encouraged to use salvaged or found materials, as well as the abandoned
home itself, as part of their submissions. This project is meant to showcase
the work of local artists while providing a unique experience for residents in the neighborhood and surrounding community.
Artists are encouraged to submit in all mediums.
There will be three (3) opportunities to view the Occupied 2.0 property.
We will meet at the Fine Arts Council office on the following days, and will leave promptly at the listed times:
Where Sidewalks End will explore how neighborhoods and communities can become disconnected as a result of infrastructure. In this exhibition a group of photographers will explore and bring awareness to how our citizens can become marginalized by living in areas without connectivity to the assets and amenities that exist for people that own a personal vehicle or live in neighborhoods with access to retail, medical facilities and public transportation.
When sidewalks are overgrown, not maintained, or simply do not exist in a community, people who are limited by age or physical impairment can become isolated in their homes, and others may risk harm from being forced to walk in the shoulder of the roadway. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, on average, a pedestrian was killed every 1.5 hours in traffic crashes in 2016.
The exhibition explores problems, and also solutions to infrastructure issues in our region by focusing on reconnecting people to the larger community and the resources that reinvigorate neighborhoods and lay the groundwork for creating safer, healthy and walkable communities. Throughout the exhibition cycle we will seek public input on potential solutions from community members who will also be invited to tell personal stories. Photographers will be invited to document where their Sidewalks end online.
The Trumbull County Fine Arts Council (FACT) today announced the launch of its new, online Arts and Entertainment calendar, Warren Wire. (www.warrenwire.com)
“Our goal is to give consumers a comprehensive listing of the rich arts and entertainment offerings that are presented weekly in Warren and the surrounding area,” says James Shuttic, FACT President. ————–see post under news to the right of this page
