Clifton Cultural Arts Center (CCAC), in partnership with the Short Vine Association, presents Shine on Short Vine, a curated exhibition of outdoor public light art installations in the Short Vine entertainment district. The month-long exhibition will take place from November 6 – 30, 2020, with works lit from 5 – 10pm nightly. In addition to the installations, CCAC will program four evenings of events based around the installations.
In addition to CCAC, a project steering committee has been selected to review and approve the artwork for the project. They are made up of individuals that represent neighborhood stakeholder organizations and resident groups.
Between 9 – 18 awards will be granted by CCAC and the Committee.
Projects and installations will be placed throughout the Short Vine Entertainment District. Sidewalks, vacant storefronts, and overhead streetlights/archways will also be considered. See appendix for site photos.
Artists must be ages 18+ to apply. All submitted concept proposals must be the artist’s own work.
