Call For Artist Participation

Hello Designers, Artists, and Design Firms, and Interested Parties,

IN-FILL PA wants YOU to participate in an exhibit of designs for in-fill spaces.

New Image

IN-FILL PA exhibition will take place at multiple venues throughout the Central Susquehanna Valley in Pennsylvania during Spring 2023.

IN-FILL PA seeks to engage residents, artists, designers, and firms to share their work to inspire dialogue to address in-fill spaces in communities.

Project Background:
In-fill is the practice of re-purposing land for new programming. Many small towns and cities in Pennsylvania, and elsewhere, have vacant lots. Often these lots sit unused for years. In some instances, communities have reassigned these spaces as outdoor amenities such as: pocket parks, playgrounds, community gardens, outdoor workspaces, meditation gardens, and performance venues. These transitions can breathe new life into underutilized spaces.

IN-FILL PA participants are asked to submit hard copies or PDFs of drawings, graphics, photo-collages, plans, and 2-D models of concept designs and implemented projects that address in-fill spaces. Before and after imagery is welcome as well as images that illustrate the process of in-fill space transformation. The exhibition is open to temporary and permanent projects. In addition, exhibition venues will host informal charrettes encouraging residents to contribute ideas to in-fill sites in their own communities.

Your contributions to this project will serve as inspiration for local action.

IN-FILL PA seeks submissions from near and far.

IN-FILL PA is a public art project curated by Cindi Hron and The Exchange Gallery.

Meet My Melanin is an evolving movement that highlights and honors Melanated individuals by allowing them space to practice reclaiming their full selves through individual sacred photo-story sessions.
