Call for Artists – Upstate of Mind Cooler Show

CALL FOR ARTISTS!

Albany Barn Inc. & Upstate of Mind have partnered to present THE COOLER SHOW, a celebration of summer and the talented artists that make up our home of Upstate NY.
8 artists will receive a 9-quart Igloo Cooler, then will be set loose with their tools and their imagination to transform the cooler into a beautiful, functional work of art.  The coolers will be displayed at Upstate of Mind’s brand new retail store, located at 33 Second Street in Troy, on July 29th in conjunction with Troy Night Out.
Selected artists will receive a stipend of $75, plus a $25 gift card to Arlene’s Artist Materials to help them bring their concept to life.  The coolers will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to future artist development programs at The Barn, at the reception on the 29th.  Please note that any unpurchased coolers will remain property of Albany Barn Inc. and will be on display and for sale at The Barn following the event.
All concepts/submissions will be considered, but special consideration will be given to designs that answer the question “What does Upstate of Mind mean to you?”.  Please note that all design concepts MUST maintain the functionality of the coolers.
Review the timeline below and, if interested, complete the form to submit your idea & contact information.

Applications must be submitted by June 24th to be considered.

Coolers will be available to pick up June 28th-July 1st at The Barn (56 Second Street, Albany NY 12210)
Completed coolers must be returned to The Barn or Upstate of Mind by July 25th.
Opening reception will be held at Upstate of Mind on July 29th from 5-8pm.
Cooler artists are required to attend the event.
