    1708 Gallery, 319 W. Broad Street, Richmond, Virginia, 23220, US

1708 Gallery invites artists working in all media and disciplines, including performance, to submit proposals for InLight Richmond 2011, 1708 Gallery’s fourth annual one-night, public, light-based art exhibition. InLight Richmond 2011 will take place on Friday, October 21 in Richmond, Virginia, along the James River on a site that features the American Civil War Center at Tredegar Iron Works.
Proposals should involve, be inspired by, investigate, or interpret themes of light, from light as medium to light as concept. Existing work, as well as proposals for new projects, will be considered. Preference will be given to site-specific projects that engage this particular location.
An honorarium will be given to each project. All entries are eligible for the Best in Show award ($1500), the People’s Choice Award ($500) and the Best in Green award ($1500). The juror for InLight 2011 is Matthew Lyons, Curator at The Kitchen, in New York.
