Call for 2-D Artists

The Kennedy Heights Arts Center and Juneteenth Cincinnati are looking to commission 10 artists to create brand new 2-D artworks inspired by different creatives (visual artists, poets, writers, dancers, musicians, etc) from the Harlem Renaissance. These pieces will be featured in an upcoming exhibition which will run from February 27th – March 27th, 2021, and be located at the Lindner Gallery at Kennedy Heights Arts Center. 

The selected artists will be paid $450 each for their time and materials to create the new work. If you are interested in applying, please send 5-10 images of your work and an artist statement/bio to curator@kennedyarts.org

Deadline is Midnight, January 25th, 2021. Free to apply.

Curators for this exhibition are Lex Nycole and Gee Horton

Exhibition Proposals for the 2022 Season

Kennedy Heights Arts Center’s mission is to enliven our surrounding community through arts and cultural experiences that embrace diversity, foster creativity and build community. We invite artists and curators to partner with us in this mission through the presentation of diverse visual art exhibitions.

Kennedy Heights Arts Center strives to stimulate interaction and dialogue and create social change through the practice of art. We are specifically looking for exhibitions that contain content that speaks to social issues or themes that start conversations and build community. (This could be done solely through your own work, an invitational group show, or a curated juried exhibition.) Proposals may be submitted for curatorial projects in all media. We are also receptive to hosting a variety of events in conjunction with exhibitions (workshops, discussions, performances, etc.).

Kennedy Heights Arts Center offers two beautiful exhibition spaces. The Kennedy Gallery in our historic mansion contains over 2,000 square feet of gallery space, featuring hardwood floors, historic architecture and contemporary museum track lighting. We host 5-7 exhibitions annually in this gallery; each typically contains 40 to 50 individual pieces, depending on size and type.

The Lindner Gallery in our Carl, Robert, Richard and Dorothy Lindner Annex is 700 square feet with hardwood floors and high ceilings, adjacent to our event center. Work in this gallery must be two-dimensional. Each show typically includes 15-25 pieces, depending on size.

Deadline for submissions: midnight, May 31st, 2021

Proposals will be selected by a jury of professional artists and curators based on quality of the work; diversity of approach, media and style for the year; and how the show contributes to KHAC’s mission. Artists will be notified by September 1, 2021.

Submission guidelines:
Please send a completed Exhibition Proposal Form (see link below to download), artist statement, bio/CV and up to 15 images of your work in jpeg format, minimum 72 dpi (with no smaller than 1000 pixels in any direction). Please label images “artist name_title”.
