Introducing: The Craftcation Art Showcase
Art Showcases are an opportunity for you to imagine, propose and create a unique installation experience at Craftcation. They are designed to reflect your style, show off your talent and give you an audience for your work! We are looking for members of our community to create one-of-a kind installations that we will showcase around the hotel during Craftcation 2024.
These showcases will be on display throughout the entirety of the conference (Wednesday 4/3 through Sunday 4/7) and consist of:
- Free-standing murals
- Backdrops or sets for our business stages or craft classrooms
- Photo opportunities, props or backdrops
- Creative installations or interactive displays
- 11.8.23 – Applications open
- 11.30.23 – Applications close
- 12.8.23 – Notifications are sent to applicants
- DO NO DAMAGE, MAKE NO MESS: In the spirit of being mindful guests, art pieces and their install process should follow “leave no trace” principles. This means refraining from putting holes in walls or otherwise damaging hotel property as well as avoiding any materials that might make a mess (we’re looking at you, glitter!). Some damage-free options include magnetic hooks, free-standing photo backdrop frames, and painters tape. Unfortunately command hooks are not allowed to be affixed to hotel property.
- ART PIECES MUST BE INSTALLED BY END OF THE DAY ON TUESDAY, APRIL 2nd. You may start your install as early as the morning of Monday, April 1st. Unfortunately we are unable to provide people to help, but you are welcome to bring in extra help as needed.
- TAKE SPACE LIMITATIONS INTO CONSIDERATION. Some spaces have special circumstances that should be factored into your design. You can find a list of spaces with dimensions and limitations here.
- I agree to provide all materials, supplies, etc. to host my Art Showcase.
- I agree to follow the rules as outlined in the section above.
- I understand that my showcase will remain on display through the duration of the conference.
