APPLICATION DEADLINE: EXTENDED. PLEASE CONTACT US!
Riverside Arts Fest offers a handful of art installations or exhibitions scattered around town; these projects are varied in structure and duration so the feasibility of each application will be considered on a case by case basis. Artists wishing to propose installations/performances/exhibitions that do not fall into the “Demonstration” category should fill out the Independent Project application, found below. These projects must be complete and ready to exhibit/perform prior to the start of the festival (August 16th).
Examples of successful independent projects we’ve had in the past are: lecture series, film installations, mini exhibitions/installations, etc.
