May 19 deadline for 2017 Operation Art Box Submissions
Get hip to the deets
Weekly Alibi is currently accepting artists' design submissions for our Operation Art Box project and May 19 is this year's deadline for arguments and illustrations coherently explaining in some detail why and how you would transform an Alibi box. Throw in some examples of your past and current artistic endeavors while you're at it. Using "art box" in the subject line, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or address snail mail to "Art Box" c/o Weekly Alibi Circulation Department, 413 Central NW, ABQ, NM 87102; drop proposals off in person at the same address or hit us up on Facebook. All submissions must include your full name, a working telephone number and the right stuff.
As long as your (non-pornographic) design is feasible, can be completed by June 30 and still functions as a newspaper box—i.e. it says "Alibi" and has a display window and a door—we're open to anything. We'll pony up $50 for supplies to the selected artists and 2017 Operation Art Box sponsor and Best of Burque winner Artisan Artists Supply will provide gift certificates or prizes of some sort. Friday, July 7th the Harwood Art Center will host a 2017 Operation Art Box gallery show opening featuring the new crop of art boxes all in one place and alongside examples of the artists' non-box artwork.
