Heart of Art: Call for artists!
The Adrienne Arsht Center announced a new online commissioning project called Heart of Art! The Arsht center invites performing artists in Miami-Dade County to participate by sharing their “Art in the Time of Coronavirus.” Heart of Art is the first online commissioning program in Miami-Dade County created to inspire new work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Using video as the virtual stage, 20 Miami-based performing artists will each be awarded $1,000 to create new works of dance, music, theater, spoken word and other performing arts that capture our community’s unique voice and experience during this unprecedented crisis. The new video works will be showcased on the Arsht Center’s website and promoted across the Center’s social media platforms and in the Arsht@Home e-newsletter.
Details for the video proposals, submission criteria and other guidelines are at arshtcenter.org/heart-art-submission. Artists working across all genres of the performing arts are encouraged to apply, including music, theater, dance, spoken word, monologues or multi-genre combinations. Because Heart of Art is intended to create an artistic time capsule of Miami’s pandemic experience, the program is open exclusively to artists who reside in Miami-Dade County. The work must represent the Miami experience and address the subject of “art in the time of coronavirus” through the artist’s creative lens. Artists will be notified if their work has been selected for a $1,000 commission.
