Call for Artists: Local Love

We love our local artists and want to give them some love! The Riverside Art Museum is launching Local Love, a crowd-curated mini-exhibition at RAM.

Our first call for local (Riverside and San Bernardino County) artists for Local Love is the Tlahualiles: The Glorious Masks of Sahuayo. We are looking for artwork that documents or celebrates the spectacular Tlahualiles masks or festival in Riverside.

Participants can submit one .jpg image each of up to three proposed artwork(s) to for exhibition review with their name, title, date of creation, dimensions, medium, and their city of residence.

All proposed 2-D artwork (must be framed and ready to hang or install) and all proposed 3-D artwork must fit the exhibition space (15”W x 55”H x 13”D OR 29”W x 55”H x 13”D).

Entries will face an initial jury before a select number will be posted on RAM’s Instagram and Facebook pages for public vote. Up to six pieces will be chosen based on the number of likes and what will fit in the exhibition space.

All winners will have their art on exhibit starting August 22 and all participants are welcome to come to the Local Love Opening Reception on September 3, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Submission deadline for images to be considered for jurying/voting: August 6, 5 p.m.

Public voting deadline: August 14, 12 noon.

Winners will be contacted after the voting deadline to set up a day/time to drop off their artwork at the museum for install before August 22.
