Kapor Center Art Competition Opens to Community

We are super-excited to announce the Kapor Center Façade Art Competition! We seek a vibrant installation to cover the first floor of our building at 2148 Broadway while we prepare for the full renovation and construction to begin in late spring 2014.

We want our building to complement the bubbling creative vibe of uptown Oakland, where our building and future home is located. In the past, we’ve displayed wonderful installations by local artists Favianna Rodriguez* and Jed Sullivan. This year, we’ve decided to tap into thriving community of socially conscience artists for installation inspiration.

The winning entrant will receive a $7,500 artist’s fee. Details of the competition are listed here. Please help us spread the word to Bay Area visual artists (especially those who live or work in Oakland).  Our hope is to unveil this installation on December 6, 2013.

*Many thanks to Favianna for advising us on this project! Y’all check out her work at the fab Solespace!
