McKissick Museum: Crafting Civil (War) Conversations

Deadline: October 31, 2014 (ONLINE)

Crafting Civil (War) Conversations
McKissick Museum

College of Arts & Sciences
University of South Carolina
Columbia, SC
February 2 to May 31, 2015

McKissick Museum, along with many other cultural organizations in the City of Columbia and at USC, will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War on April 9, 2014. For our commemoration, McKissick invites artists to reflect on the history of the war and its legacy and plans to feature a major exhibition entitled Crafting Civil (War) Conversations.

Seeking entries from artists working in what historically have been regarded as craft-based media (clay, fiber, glass, metal and wood), our exhibit will be a juried art exhibition that symbolically re-enacts the Civil War’s end as a scene of reconciliation—not between the North and the South—but between former slaves and former slave owners. The Museum ask artists to imagine and give visual and sculptural form to this scene, perhaps giving form to what Martin Luther King conjured when he dreamt of a day when “the sons of former slaves and the sons of slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”

To participate, artists must have been born in, raised in (minimum one year), or be currently living and working in one of the states that joined the Confederacy: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. This eligibility requirement ensures that the prize-winning artworks that will become part of McKissick’s permanent collection are aligned with the Museum’s collections policy.

Artists must work in craft-based media—clay, fiber, glass, metal, and/or wood.

Submitted artworks must have been completed since April 2011, the start of sesquicentennial commemorations of the American Civil War.

Artists must pay a $25 non-refundable entry fee.

To be eligible for this juried exhibition, artists must be 18 years old on or before the October 31, 2014 submission deadline.

$25,000 in purchase awards will be given to prize winning artists and/or artist collaboratives. Artists are welcome to submit images of an individual artwork conceived of as a component part of a scene of reconciliation OR to submit images of an installation with multiple components OR to collaborate with other artists to submit images of an installation with multiple component parts.

Quilters around the world are invited to enter outstanding quilts in the 22nd Annual Competition coordinated by The National Quilt Museum. The 2015 competition is open to quilts that are innovative interpretations of traditional Nine Patch patterns.

Each year this international contest organized by The National Quilt Museum challenges quiltmakers to create an innovative quilt based on a specific traditional pattern. Winners of the contest traditionally include quilts from many different U.S. states and several other countries.

Quilts are selected for their excellence in design and techniques, their innovations, and their contributions to an exhibit showing the wide range of designs and styles the selected traditional pattern can inspire.

In cooperation with the American Quilter's Society, a catalog is published, featuring the award-winning and finalist quilts in full color, with a photo of the maker, information about the quilt's development and patterns and tips.

This competition gives quilters an excellent opportunity to share their work with people across the country. The quilts selected as finalists will receive awards and make up a traveling exhibition. A book on the exhibit will feature color photos of the quilts and the quiltmakers, as well as the maker’s patterns and/or tips. The exhibit will open at The National Quilt Museum and travel to other venues.

1st Place: $3,000
2nd Place: $1,500
3rd Place: $750
4th Place: $500
5th Place: $300
Finalists: $100

Anyone can enter a cloth quilt by submitting digital images (one full view and one detail), a completed entry form and an entry fee. These must arrive at the Museum by November 1, 2014.

The entry fee for Friends of the Museum is $10. Others must enclose a $50 entry fee ($60 for International) with their entry form.

A contestant can make a donation to become a Friend of the Museum when entering and enter for $10.
