Special Crawl Festival Installation in Herschel Infinity Room
November 1 – December 31, 2021
New this year! We have partnered with Herschel Supply Co. to provide a special exhibition opportunity for a Culture Crawl artist(s) in their Gastown Infinity Room. We are calling for installation proposals from an artist(s) who have registered in this year’s Eastside Culture Crawl based on the same theme as this year’s juried preview exhibition.
Artists registered for the 2021 Eastside Culture Crawl are eligible to submit an image to be included in the second annual Crawl Catalogue, a curated digital exhibition catalogue that will be launched in advance of this year’s festival.
The virtual exhibition catalogue features a preview of the artists and artwork that can be seen during this year’s Eastside Culture Crawl. Please note, this is an additional promotional piece and is not the same as the official festival Program Guide. All artists registered for the 2021 Culture Crawl who have filled out their online artist profiles will be listed in the Program Guide, but you must submit to be included in the Curated Catalogue.
