Call for Art: The Rumpus Revival

Engine is calling for work for the annual Rumpus, entitled Revival, an egalitarian art show. Anyone can participate, professional artist or not, young or old. The Rumpus Revival will open from 5-8pm on March 27 at Engine, 265 Main Street across from McArthur Library.

Engine executive director Tammy Ackerman says, “As a community arts organization, we want to host a show that includes everyone that wants to be included. We want to see what kind of talent is out there has and it’s a fun, unintimidating way for people who make art either as a hobby or professionally to get involved. It’s a great way for the community to meet each other, too.”

People can enter up to two pieces of work, 2- or 3-dimensional. Freestanding pieces must have a pedestal provided. All work that will hang on the wall must have mounting hardware attached. Work can be dropped off between March 17 and 21 during regular hours at Engine, 265 Main Street. The show will run from March 27 through April 11, 2015.

Pickup: By April 15.
