It's a costume party baby!! Don your crowns and grab your scepters-SPACES stages another raucous annual benefit and art auction with a tip of the tiara to pop royalty. Whether you're a pop chart princess, a carbonated king, Orville Redenbacher's heir-apparent, or the Roy(alty) of Lichtenstein, this is the glitz and glamour that you're looking for.
This is a Call to all artists!!! SPACES' 12x12 will take place during our annual benefit costume party Pop Royalty, November 5th at SPACES. Get ready to roll out the red carpet and take a flash-bulb fettered stroll into the arms of Pop Royalty dead and deader (or alive). SPACES needs you and your glittered-covered glam to make the evening of celebrity one for the tabloids.
Here's the Skinny
Artists may submit one work no larger than 12 inches by 12 inches. (yes it can be smaller)
Work must be ready for display on a wall
All works will be sold for a flat $75 and all proceeds from the 12x12 go directly to SPACES to help support its mission to be the resource and public forum for artists who explore and experiment.
To show our appreciation, each artist who donates a 12x12 work will receive one free 8:00p.m. ticket to the benefit party Pop Royalty, November 5th at SPACES.
Students and professional artists are encouraged to apply. This is a great opportunity to support SPACES in its work! Artwork does not need to fit within the theme of the party.
12x12 works may be drawings, paintings, sculptures (as long as it hangs on a wall), prints, collages, photographs, or any combination thereof. Work can be on panel, canvas, paper, stone, asphalt, ceramic, or whatever your heart desires; as long as the work is display ready and can hang on the wall. Surprise us!

Spring and early summer at SPACES has really underscored the tremendous power food has to bring people together.
We are continuing the community dinner series began in March with Survival Postures,* with 'Full Circle Mirror Image,' a collaborative installation from the legendary urban food advocate Maurice Small and artist Johnny Coleman. We'll share dinner and dialogue about food access in Cleveland. Full event details follow, and we hope to see you there!
* For those of you who couldn't make Survival Postures, a website documenting the project is up at www.survivalpostures.weebly.com.
Full Circle Mirror Image
with Maurice Small and Johnny Coleman
Sunday, July 10, 5:00-7:30 pm
SPACES (2220 Superior Viaduct)
Suggested donation $5-10 at the door.
'Full Circle Mirror Image' is a living tribute to the full life cycle of one tenacious urban crop-- collard greens. A mirror installation inside and outside the gallery will both cook and grow collard greens, and tell the sensory story of what good food can do to bring people together. In that spirit, we'll share a light, locally-sourced dinner and some good company.
For the last twenty years, artist Johnny Coleman has composed spaces activated as prayers: requests for guidance, conscious statements of intent, and thanksgiving. His process spans poetry, performance, and a sculptural format that integrates the dramatic presentation of a stage set with the oral tradition of storytelling, while consciously focusing upon private spaces that sometimes exist in the absence of a performer. He has exhibited extensively throughout the U.S., and continues to collaborate with artists nationally.
Master composter, worm translator, food broker and urban advocate Maurice Small has been building urban food systems, creating soil and training youth entrepreneurs for over twenty years. As Learning Garden Director at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens and Co-founder of City Fresh (a project that built food access in Cleveland neighborhoods, while improving urban market access for rural farmers), his work has taken the region by storm. Most recently he's been organizing on food access in Youngstown, and acting as Chief Compost Officer for Spencer's Boy at www.mauricesmall.tumblr.com.
