JP Centre/South Main Streets has issued a Request for Proposals for their third Annual Winter Light Show. The organization seeks artists who will use JPCSMS’ crowdfunded projector to create an artistic and dynamic light show with projection mapping that will project onto a local building within the district. Special preference will be given to artists from Jamaica Plain. Details are available at https://jpcentresouth.com/ or by contacting Ginger Brown at [email protected] or (917) 942-2439.
Proposals open September 6 and close on October 1, 2021. Artists will be selected by Friday, October 8, 2021. The show will debut on Friday, December 3, and continue until January 10, 2022. The location will be selected together by JP Centre/South Main Streets and the artist/s. In the past, JPCSMS has featured projection shows onto the buildings at 670 Centre St (City Feed & Supply), the First Baptist Church, and J.P. Licks.
The projector is the result of a crowdfunding campaign in 2019, which raised over $15,000 to purchase a projector that would innovate our holiday decorations campaign. In addition, the projector is available for community groups to use for additional art projects. These projects include Artists for Humanity, Black Lives Matter, and JP Together/JP Unidas.
