DATMA National Call for Art

September 22 - November 1

DATMA is issuing a call for art for an outdoor installation on the shelter theme. New Bedford will serve as a canvas for art exploring the role of shelter within the histories, communities, and cultures of the SouthCoast region and beyond.

Artists are welcome to consider subjects including housing, the Underground Railroad, and/or immigration. Three finalist submissions will be awarded a $1,000 stipend to develop detailed proposals. The final selected work will be awarded $25,000 to cover all artists’ fees, material, travel, and installation. DATMA will cover all costs associated with insurance, engineering, permitting, installation equipment, marketing, PR, and overall support for the selected project. Accepted mediums include mixed media, sculpture, installation, new genres, digital media, film and video, music composition, and photography.

Applications will be accepted online here until Nov. 1, 2022.
