Washington Project for the Arts, in partnership with Smithsonian Enterprises, announces it will be sponsoring a two-day holiday pop up shop at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden during the Smithsonian Holiday Festival on Saturday, December 5 and Sunday, December 6, 2015. The shop will feature unique and exciting holiday gifts, including small works of art, crafts, and other handmade goods by WPA member artists.

WPA member artists interested in participating are invited to submit proposals including original, handcrafted items or artwork they would like to sell in the store. A broad range of work is sought and items with modest, gift-friendly price tags (under $300) are desired.

Examples of what may be considered include, but are NOT limited to: jewelry, seasonal items (ornaments, gifts, toys), personalized items, housewares, glass decorative items, ceramics, handmade books/cards/stationary, clothing, pet items, photography, digital, video and 2D artwork. Works that more esoteric, conceptual in nature, or that incorporate technology are also highly encouraged.

Interested applicants must be current members of WPA. Additional information about WPA Membership can be found at www.wpadc.org/membership.

Submissions will only be accepted online via their online submission form. Deadline for submissions is July 10, 2015.

Questions can be directed to Jeremy Flick, Membership Director at [email protected] For more information visit https://www.wpadc.org/content/apply%E2%80%93wpa-holiday-pop-shop.
