West Collects seeks artists for $275,000 in acquisitions for 2012

The West Collects organization, which acquires work for the West Collection of the Philadelphia, Penn. area, is seeking new artists for its collection in 2012, with $275,000 to be spent on new acquisitions. The deadline for application is Sunday, April 1.

All artists of age 18 years or older, working in any medium, may apply for consideration. Application is also completely free of charge. Those applying are asked only to upload a concise body of recent work–to, in the organization’s own words, “think of it as a solo show, not a museum retrospective.”

Applications are being accepted online at the organization’s website. The West Collects 2012 artists and acquisitions will be announced on Tuesday, May 15.
