“Frame of Mind” outdoor Digital Media Event, May 13, 2011. A Digital Media showcase sponsored by Downtown Denver Partnership and the Denver Theatre District. $250 cash prize for best submission. LOCATION: Denver Theatre District, 14th Street and Champa LED screen, Denver, CO, USA
The Downtown Denver Partnership and Denver Theatre District is pleased to announce an open call for video artists for "Frame of Mind," a showcase of digital media presented in conjunction with Create Denver Week in downtown Denver on May 13th, 2011. Artist may submit original motion-based works of between 15 to 60 seconds. All works must be formatted to the specifications of the outdoor LED screen located at the corner of 14th and Champa Street in downtown Denver as provided below. Artists may submit variations of a work in different lengths; 15 second works might have the opportunity to continue screening on the LED for a period of time following the event. Content will be judged according to overall artistic merits, uniqueness and application to the architectural and public nature of the LED screen site. At present, the LED does not accommodate sound; works that have soundtracks are acceptable and encouraged though artists must acknowledge that sound may not be part of the final presentation. Select works will be screened on May 13th during the one-night program "MASS MEDIA: Seeing, Making, Mapping" presented in conjunction with Create Denver Week, a celebration of the arts and creative community in Denver. This program will be one of the focal celebrations of the week, consisting of a symposium on digital media, a VIP reception, screening of select "I Create Denver" videos on the outdoor LED commissioned by the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs, video mapping projections on surrounding buildings also commissioned by the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs, and works juried through this call for entries. The Outdoor Art Gallery is a central component to the Denver Theatre District's mission to activate the most exciting blocks of downtown Denver through the arts. A massive visual feast that changes throughout the year, the gallery is the first of its kind in the U.S., providing a direct link to the robust art community growing in Denver.
