60 X 60
May 5 through June 2, 2006
Wells Community Cultural Center, West Gallery, Lafayette, Indiana
For the past 28 years, the Purdue University Galleries have presented a national biennial small-scale contemporary printmaking competition called “Sixty Square Inches.” With the assistance of a Challenge America: Reaching Every Community Invitational Initiative grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Purdue Galleries is organizing and promoting a traveling exhibition entitled “60 X 60,” consisting of a selection of images acquired from previous Sixty Square Inches exhibits.
This premiere exhibition will kick off the “60 x 60” traveling exhibit with a display of the collected works here in their home of Lafayette-West Lafayette, at the Wells Community Cultural Center. The exhibit will be featured during the first Downtown Gallery Walk on Friday evening, May 5.
Bookings for the traveling schedule are now being accepted.
Rental fee: $1,500 per venue, to be applied to the cost of producing a full-color printed catalogue of the exhibition. Each venue will receive 100 copies of the catalogue; additional copies can be purchased with prior arrangements at cost.
Shipping: Participating venues will be responsible for arranging shipment and the costs associated with transporting the exhibition pieces to the next venue (US only).
Space requirements: About 250 linear feet of exhibition space. Exhibitors must provide adequate insurance during their shipping commitment and while the artwork is in house. Exhibitors are also expected to provide experienced art handlers for installation and a secure, limited-access gallery space.
