1708 Gallery invites emerging and professional artists, national and international, working in all media and disciplines to submit proposals for InLight Richmond 2009, the second annual exhibition of contemporary public art inspired by light.

InLight Richmond 2009 will take place on the weekend of September 25-27, 2009. Downtown Richmond will once again be transformed by the art projects presented in various public spaces -- sidewalks and walls, storefronts and buildings, etc.

Preferences will be given to proposals that involve, investigate, interpret, or are inspired by light, either as a medium or as an abstract idea. Existing work, as well as proposals for new projects will be considered. The work will be selected by guest juror Adelina Vlas, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Awards include $1500 Best in Show; $1500 Best in Green; $500 People's Choice Award. Deadline is March 31, 2009. Entry fee is $30.
