Our first night of the festival was a success!

Thank you to everyone who came out to (sub)Urban Projections last night!  The Hult Center Parking Garage was re-imagined as a blank canvas for projection art, digital graffiti and interactive works.  Check out the stories about us in the Eugene Weekly and Oregon Daily Emerald, and join us next Wednesday from 6-9:30pm at 5th Ave. & Willamette, near the train depot in the alley adjacent to the south wall of Red Agave.  Featured artist Kevin Patton will be performing live at 7:30pm, find out more info on our artist page!

Call to Artists (more info soon!)

Eugene is ready for cutting-edge contemporary art and new media. The emergence of (sub)Urban Projections, a digital art and media festival that will re-purpose public space by projecting moving images in the back alleys of downtown Eugene, is our newest way of celebrating emerging artists, the Eugene community, and innovative possibilities for public art.

(sub)Urban Projections is seeking submissions of short digital video from emerging artists. Submissions must be a maximum of 7 minutes. The top three submissions, selected by an external jury, will be awarded prizes of $300-$1,000. Many more will be selected for inclusion in the festival, allowing artists prominent exposure and professional opportunity. We are especially interested in work by artists from Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, but all are welcome and encouraged to submit. 

The official Call to Artists with full submission guidelines, deadlines, and details will be posted shortly. Please contact Roya at suburbanprojections@gmail.com with questions.
