The Phipps seeks submissions in all visual and performing art forms for the Virtual 2020 Members’ Spotlight
This year's annual Members' Spotlight will be presented as a virtual show in response to the health concerns caused by COVID-19.
Together, members of The Phipps are a creative network joined by the belief in the center’s mission to “Celebrate the creative spirit.” All members are encouraged to share their unique creative talents in the Virtual 2020 Members' Spotlight and connect with other members with similar creative inclinations.
The Members’ Spotlight is an opportunity for every member of The Phipps community to share their creativity. In addition to seeking submissions of traditional visual arts and crafts – drawing, painting, mixed media, photography, sculpture, video, installation, pottery, jewelry, textiles, glass, etc. – we encourage musical, literary, theater, and submissions in all other creative areas, including but not limited to architecture, graphic design, clothing design, and theater design (costume, sets, makeup, lighting).
Current members and others whose memberships have lapsed within the past year will receive a reminder of this opportunity in the mail, and new members are encouraged to participate. Information about membership can be found at https://thephipps.org/get-involved-2/give/donations/ or by calling 715.386.2305.
To Participate in the Virtual Members' Spotlight:
Members are encouraged to make up to two submissions total.
-To submit a performance: submit a video of your performance(s) or sign up for a time to perform on the Main Stage. If you perform on the Main Stage, we will record sound/video for you.
Performers should sign up here for a Main Stage recording time. Please include a brief description with any technical support required and approximate length of your performance. A representative from The Phipps will follow-up with any questions and to confirm the Spotlight performance schedule. Your performance should be "ready for showtime", time is tight on the stage and we will not have time for "rehearsal". Thank you!
Videos can be submitted through Dropbox, WeTransfer, Microsoft OneDrive, or Facebook. If using a sharing service WeTransfer or Dropbox send files to [email protected]. If sharing on Facebook, make sure your video is posted publicly on your timeline, and tag The Phipps Center for the Arts. (See “Tips for Recording Performances” below.)
Tips for Recording Performances:
- Record with horizontal/landscape dimensions.
- Cell phone video is fine.
- Record in a quiet space with little wind or background noise.
- If there's a lot of echo where you are recording, try covering hard surfaces with blankets or jackets.
- Videos should be submitted as .mp4 or .mov files (your phone will likely record in one of these two file types)
