The New Children's Museum of San Diego has launched their first Open Call for Artists. The museum is a hybrid contemporary art museum / children's museum, housed in a beautiful modern, sustainable building along the harbor downtown. They are looking for proposals for contemporary art installations in all media, for an audience of both children (toddler to teen) and families. They focus on works that are participatory and approachable, with opportunities for open-ended interpretation and play. Decisions will be made end of summer with installation this fall. Details and budget info here (deadline is July 30, 2010).
