Public Art Project in Downtown Manchester, Deadline for entries approaching 

DEADLINE REMINDER for the “Think Outside the Box” Public Art Project in Manchester
NH artists are invited to submit designs to paint the traffic signal boxes downtown

Manchester, NH – The deadline for entries for the public call for artists for this project is less than two weeks away.

In an attempt to beautify the city by infusing art, color, and creativity into the urban landscape, NH artists are invited to submit designs to paint on the traffic signal boxes in Manchester’s downtown. Three to five designs will be chosen by a jury process and those selected artists will paint the traffic signal boxes this spring, weather permitting. Each artist will receive a $300 stipend to cover materials and their time.

This project is a collaboration between InTown Manchester, The City of Manchester’s Art Commission and Highway Department, and Studio 550 Art Center. The committee is excited to see how artists interpret the call for entries. They are hoping for a wide variety of creative designs and solutions so that the most suitable ones may be chosen for installation.

All entries must be received by March 7th, 9PM at Studio 550, at 550 Elm St. in Manchester. Submissions may be sent via email, post mail, or dropped off in person at Studio 550, and the full application can be found on the Studio 550 website, under the “Opportunities” page.  The $25 application fee will be waived for students.

For more information, see http://550arts.com, call 603-232.5597 or stop by the studio at 550 Elm St. in Manchester, NH.

Studio 550 - Think creatively this Valentine’s Day, Make Art Together

Think creatively this Valentine’s Day
Make memories that last forever: Make art together!

Manchester, NH- For those looking to do something different and memorable to celebrate Valentine’s Day, Studio 550 is hosting Date Nights in the pottery studio Friday and Saturday evenings throughout the month.

Participants will learn how to throw on the potter’s wheel side-by-side and each person will be able to select one of their creations to finish and fire. The pieces will be ready for pick-up approximately a month later, glaze-fired and safe for food or drink. Participants may also bring their own wine and chocolates!

There will be two Date Night sessions held each Friday and Saturday evening, one hour-and-a-half session starts at 6:00PM and the second one at 7:30PM. In some cases we are able to accommodate reservations other nights of the week. Contact the studio for special requests.

All materials and instruction are included for the couple for $60. Beginners are always welcome! There is limited space, so advance registration is required. For those looking for something not quite so messy, there is also the option of coil-building a project together.
