CALL FOR ENTRIES: ONE x 100: Creating within Constraints

COLUMBIA, SC – The Columbia Museum of Art announces a CALL FOR ENTRIES for a crowd-sourced Community Gallery exhibition celebrating Dorothy and Herbert Vogel and the anniversary of their gift of 594 works to the Museum. The Vogels, internationally recognized collectors of contemporary art, built a collection of over 4,500 objects spanning all media and covering the most innovative art movements of the late 20th century. Devoting Herb's salary as a postal clerk to purchase art, and living on Dorothy's paycheck as a librarian, they collected mostly minimalist and conceptual artworks. They followed their own rules: the piece had to be affordable and small enough to fit in their one-bedroom Manhattan apartment, city transportation, and be easily carried. With these limitations, they proved to be curatorial visionaries.

Submit artwork in the spirit of the Vogel’s collecting criteria, but with a unique twist: the work must fit within a 1-foot by 1-foot space. Submissions can be flat, three-dimensional or in video format, but must demonstrate enthusiasm for contemporary, minimalist or conceptual art practices. The first 100 works will be selected to be on view in this Community Gallery exhibition from June 7 – September 8, 2013. For more information, including submission criteria, visit

DEADLINE: Art must be submitted on Saturday, May 11 between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the Columbia Museum of Art. The first 100 art works that follow the provided criteria will be accepted into the exhibition.
