Call for Artists: Art on Call

Posted in Art & Architecture, Neighborhoods with tags , , on June 8, 2009 by Kent

The following call for artists was brought to my attention by a reader and was originally posted by Frozen Tropics by inked on 6/8/09:

The Trinidad Neighborhood Association is currently seeking artists interested in gaining exposure, and creating beauty that will be seen by residents of, and visitors to, the Trinidad neighborhood. Artists would, with input from the community, develop and execute concepts that celebrate the history, and spirit of the Trinidad neighborhood. The art would be on display permanently in the area’s police and fire callboxes that stand on street corners throughout the neighborhood. The Art on Call project, which is administered by Cultural Tourism DC, would cover the cost of materials. Artists who live or work in, or near, the Trinidad community are especially encouraged to apply (but we are seeking applications from any interested individuals or groups). Amateurs, as well as professionals (and youth groups) are encouraged to apply. Please send emails to, or call 202-631-8254 if you are interested. You can also attend tomorrow night’s Neighborhood Association meeting:
