Project Invite - Street Salon


Hi there people,
Just a quick invite. Though some of you may be interested in taking part in this project funded by the city of Greater Geelong and being ran by the Geelong Arts Alliance.
Glen aka no frills

Street Salon – Art for the Masses

Street Salon is a participatory art project in which artists (professional and non-professional) create small artworks for display in a recreated salon in central Geelong. Street Salon is an action celebrating the salon style show in which everyone is an artist regardless of style, medium, content or ability. The original salon was a private affair of the cultural elite. Street Salon by contrast is a public event, a democratic mass display of work. All works submitted will be exhibited in Street Salon. None will be rejected.

Street Salon will take three forms:

- Street Salon exhibition in a shopfront in central Geelong (Sept-Oct)
- A Street Salon blog of all work received
- Selected* works reproduced on two-colour AO posters for distribution to arts venues, libraries, community centres etc
(*Selected here due to unknown numbers and the more graphic images will reproduce better.)

Further information and templates to create your work on can be downloaded here:

ps- the deadline for artworks is 24 Sept!
