WHEN IS THE SHOWCASE RECEPTION?
A closing reception is held on Sunday, July 29, 2–4 p.m.
WHERE IS THE SHOWCASE?
The Showcase is exhibited at Arrow Creative on Broad Ave.
Instructors are REQUIRED to install the artwork from their classes and are responsible for selecting work from their classes in cooperation with the Program Manager. Instructors are strongly encouraged to attend the closing reception.
Selected support staff will help install the artwork and will help at the closing reception. Regular hourly pay may apply.
SELECTING WORK FOR THE SHOWCASE:
Each camper will have one piece of artwork per class. If a camper is enrolled in more than one class or more than one week, they will have multiple pieces in the show. You will receive a list of designated campers and a set of labels for each class. If you are co-teaching a class, clearly communicate with the other instructor to be sure that only one work per student is saved for that class. All other artwork should be sent home with the campers. Label all work with camper’s First and Last name.
Instructors are responsible for keeping track of all the campers’ showcase pieces as well as campers who opt out of the show. A paper system will be in place to account for each camper regardless of whether or not they have opted out. For campers opting out, this form must be signed by a parent/guardian. The Program Manager will have a binder with all Showcase documentation if needed for reference.
ALL instructors are required to install work from their class(es) and can do so at any time during the following installation times:
Wednesday, July 18, 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Thursday, July 19, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m
For classes meeting July 16-20 artwork must be installed by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 20
All work must be installed, neatly and show-ready, with labels (provided), by Thursday at 5:00 p. m. Work should be straight and level and evenly spaced. Walls and display cases should be clean with no stray marks, fingerprints or handprints. Labels should be below the artwork and to the right side. Please use your finely tuned aesthetic sensibilities to ensure an attractive display. Work will be inspected by the camp director and director of community education on Friday; instructors will be contacted to return and correct any work that is not properly installed.
