Hi! An online gallery www.galerie-nordhof.de (http://www.galerie-nordhof.de) is looking for artists to join their project (http://www.galerie-nordhof.de/97838/90691.html)
The "collecting" part of the project will be terminated by December 31st, 2004. The virtual project then will be transformed to a concrete printed piece of art. Your pictures will be resized to 30 x 30 cm / 11.8" x 11.8" and printed on a banner. In 2005 the banner will be the main item of a touring exhibition which will go to some 50 German towns and cities before finally the banner will be auctioned. The proceedings from the exhibition as well as the auction of our common work will go to CaArJo (casa de los artistas jovenes), a relief organization for children and juveniles in the Dominican Republic.
I think the pictures of the CaArJo look a bit frightening and there is not much information about it. Has anyone heard of it? I didnīt find it on the net, only the gallery advertising their project. They also ask to promote it among other artists, I think Iīm already doing that one :D Please share your knowledge and your experience with similar projects!
Maybe I am too wary (and more than 300 artists have already joined it) but I think the project description is not detailled enough concerning copyright, what happens with the original painting, how they want to make money, how they afford the cataloge they want to publish with everybodies (?) contribution inside....I am emailing them but did I even forget something? :music:
Another question - should I crosspost this in the buisness forum?
Thank you for all comments!
