A Multimedia SNF Parkway Window Exhibition

SNF Parkway is launching “On the Other Side”, a new window exhibition space.  We are currently looking for dynamic digital media artists to submit their works for consideration.

*The On the Other Side SNF Parkway Windows Exhibit has been delayed with an anticipated release of April 1st.*

The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the unprecedented shutdowns have forced us to consider what a new world could look like. As we embrace the new normal of an enduring global pandemic, it is prime time to reimagine possibilities for the new age. We are looking for images that reframe our world in ways that are more sustainable, void of exploitation, and healthy for all. 

The work will be projected on the North Charles Street side windows of the SNF Parkway, viewable to those both inside the first-floor lounge and outside of the building.  Artwork should be engaging, meaningful, and visually appealing. 

We welcome work that pushes boundaries and challenges viewers, however, we ask artists to be mindful of the diverse community where the Parkway calls home. This means explicitly violent, sexual, or derogatory content will not be accepted. Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Participating artists will receive a $250 stipend.

Artworks can take a range of media forms such as:

  • Time-based media (film, video, animation, games, interactive, VR and AR*)
  • Photography

*AR/VR submissions will have to have their own means of engagement, The Parkway will not be providing extra technology to support works with this feature.

It’s important to note that these projections will be void of sound, so moving image submissions with dialog should be captioned.

Artists whose submissions are accepted will be contacted.  Those who are not selected will be added to our artist list for future consideration. Please do not contact MdFF or the SNF Parkway regarding your submission.

Upcoming Calls

A submission will be selected based on:

  1. How well it fits in with the theme
  2. Artistic quality and unique creative expression
  3. Matches the values and goals of the Parkway
  4. Reflects the demographics of Baltimore City
  5. Baltimore Metro artists are preferred but not required

April’s theme is “Transforming Self.”

Understanding that real change starts with self, we are accepting submissions that explore the concept of self transformation, becoming anew, and moving forward.

May’s theme is “Future. Resilience. Power. Pride.”

May we will be participating in Asia North Festival exhibition seeking submissions from Asian and AAPI artists that explore the future, resilience, power and pride.

June’s theme is “The Future is Queerness’ Domain.”

What freedom and relationships are possible when barriers around sexuality are broken down? Special preference to artists that identify as queer.

July’s theme is “A Liberated Future.”

What is freedom? What does it look like to be truly liberated? Works selected during July will explore these themes.
