“LGBTQ: Rights and Justice”
Alwun House Foundation is organizing an exhibition that explores the struggles endured by the LGBTQ community, and features a display of items related to local LGBTQ history from the ASU Libraries archives. The exhibition will take place at Burton Barr Central Library from March 27 to April 22, 2017. Submissions related to protest, family issues, identity, and other related topics are welcome. Applications for this juried exhibition were originally due January 16, 2017, but the deadline has been extended to February 24. Find more information on the Alwun House website.

“Light Sensitive”
Art Intersection is looking for works to feature in its juried “Light Sensitive” exhibition happening from March 7 to April 15, 2017. The show highlights the art of creating handmade images and using traditional photographic printmaking processes. It’s one of several calls for art recently announced by the arts venue. The deadline for “Light Sensitive” submissions is January 21, 2017. Learn more on the Art Intersection website.

Main Street Prototyping Festival
A group of Mesa organizers are collaborating to present the first Main Street Prototyping Festival on November 17 and 18, 2017. And they’re currently seeking prototype proposals from artists, architects, designers, engineers, urban planners, and other creatives. Proposed projects should be designed to temporarily activate public space while engaging the community to help create a more vibrant downtown Mesa. Possible projects include gathering spaces, interactive games, performance, and interactive artwork, to name a few. Submissions are due on January 23, 2017. Find more details on the Mesa Arts Center website.

Scottsdale Public Art Creative Residency
Scottsdale Public Art, which initiated its first Creative Residency program in 2011, is currently seeking applications for an artist residency taking place at the Scottsdale Livery in Old Town. The residency program helps artists explore new ways of thinking and engaging the public in the creative process through working on site, as well as engaging community members in conversation and participation. It’s designed for individual emerging and mid-career artists, or collaborative teams, whose work focuses on social and public practice. Submissions are being sought through January 24, 2017. Learn more on the Scottsdale Public Art website.
