June 2023 Artist Opportunities
LATITUDES IN AFRO-LATINX ART EXHIBIT
APPLICATIONS DUE JUNE 11, 2023
Latitude refers both to a place and a celestial object in relation to the equatorial mark we humans invented. It is an imaginary line around the globe. It both occupies north and south imaginations. In inviting Latitudes, we are inviting artists to submit artworks and practices that engage with the Afro-Latinx expressions in their diversities, expansions, and imaginations. Across the globe and across the skies, under and above the oceans. The exhibition is a collaboration between Casa Azul of Greensboro and The African American Atelier and will take place in The African American Atelier gallery in the Greensboro Cultural Center in September/October of 2023 in North Carolina.

Public Art Call - The "5" Royales Mural
APPLICATION DEADLINE JULY 31, 2023
The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Public Art Commission is seeking artists to design and paint a fullcolor mural of The “5” Royales, the early rock & roll band from Winston-Salem that was highly influential in the evolution and birth of rock & roll in the 1950s and ‘60s. They had two number one R&B hits in 1953: “Help Me Somebody” and “Baby Don’t Do It.” Some of their more memorable hits were brought to wider popularity by more famous musicians. “Tell the Truth” was covered by Ray Charles, “Think” was a hit not just once, but twice, when sung by James Brown, and “Dedicated to the One I Love” was wildly successful when sung by The Shirelles and the Mamas and the Papas. The “5” Royales were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. This project is being funded by the City of Winston-Salem. The budget of $19,999 is intended to pay for artist-design fees, paint and painting supplies, wall preparation, insurance, transportation, lodging, lift equipment rental, and painting the mural. Up to three finalists will be paid $1,000 to design and present a proposal
