calls for entries
Southside Main Street is taking entries for its 2nd Annual Places, Spaces, Chairs public art project until Feb. 1, 2008. Southside is looking for artworks that combine sculpture with the idea of the chair as an object and reflects the SoMa neighborhood experience. Each artist chosen to participate will be sponsored by a local business that will provide money to build the “chair.” Artist renderings are due March 1, 2008; the completed chair should be ready for installation April 1, 2008. For more information and project description go to www.southsidemain.org or call 537-9032, ext 11.
Southside is also looking for participants in its 2nd annual Mardi Gras Parade on South Main Street, to be held at 3 p.m. Feb. 2. The route runs from 17th to 12th Street. Marching bands and floats are welcome.
Entry packets for Winthrop Rockefeller Institute's “Arts in the Air” contest are now available for schoolteachers to download at www.uawri.org or by calling 866-972-7778. The art will be judged in grade divisions K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12.

Each student can submit only one entry, and each participating school/program is limited to 10 entries per division. Entries must be received by Feb. 14, 2008. In April, county contest winners will exhibit their work at the statewide “Arts in the Air” show and be invited to attend a special Winners Workshop and Awards Ceremony at the Rockefeller Institute, a part of the University of Arkansas System, on Petit Jean Mountain. Approximately $1,000 in cash prizes will be awarded at the state contest.
