RFP for RE:art and Available Studio Space

From: user 4.
Sent on: Tuesday, April 21, 2009 8:43 AM
Hello ArtForward members:

There are two things that I want to inform you about, please feel free to pass it on!

RFP RE:art:
The Executive Committee of the NYC Sierra Club has offered to fund the transport of the audience-select "winner" of the show to the Statewide Gala/Fundraiser in June that will be held in Long Island. Part of this event will include an art auction from which a portion of the proceeds will go to the Sierra CLub NY state chapter. In effect, the winner will get an opportunity to attend a dinner and sell their art.

The deadlines have been pushed later. Here is the updated timeline:

Proposal Due Date: Friday May 1, 2009
