ANNOUNCING SPREAD 7.0!

ABOUT SPREAD:

SPREAD begins with an application and a jurying process that leads to the selection of six SPREAD Finalist artists.  SITE’s curators work closely with each Finalist to develop a short pitch and presentation introducing their work and making a case for funding.

In the past, at each SPREAD event, over 300 diners paid a sliding-scale entrance fee for which they received dinner and a ballot. During dinner the six finalist artists presented their proposals for yet-to-be-realized new projects. The SPREAD diners then voted for their favorite project. 

At the end of dinner, the artist whose proposal received the most votes was awarded all of the funds collected at the door to realize their project. 

SPREAD IN THE ERA OF COVID-19: 

Mass gatherings like SITE’s SPREAD dinner are not possible at this time, as we adhere to current State Health Orders to protect our staff and community. However, Art Must Go On! We have reimagined SPREAD in a virtual format, with Finalist artists creating video pitch segments, with voting and crowdfunding taking place online, and with a LIVE virtual event to announce our winner.

DEADLINES: 

Application Deadline is December 4, 2020 

Finalists will be announced in March 2021 

On-line voting for your favorite Finalist will begin in Spring/Summer 2021

A virtual SPREAD event with the announcement of the winner will take place in June 2021
