Exhibition and Mentoring Opportunities
http://www.insitemilwaukee.org/index.htm

Are you an artist intrigued by the concept of temporary public art? Are you interested in creating art that has a life outside the gallery, projects that are visible to all who live and work in Milwaukee? If so, consider working with IN:SITE. The opportunities are constantly evolving and IN:SITE wants to offer them to all artists, emerging or established. Stipends for projects run from $200 to $500, depending on the scale and length of the project. In its curatorial role, IN:SITE connects artists with locations appropriate for temporary public art. Currently, IN:SITE is requesting proposals for two locations in the Sherman Park neighborhood for installation in the Spring of 2008.
