Apply now to Sparkplug, DCAC’s artist collective.
Sparkplug brings together artists from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences in the DC area to foster their development collectively.
In 2007, Sparkplug was launched as DCAC’s artists collective. Around ten members participate for two years, meeting on a monthly basis to critique each other’s work, discuss exhibitions around the area, visit each other’s studios, and meet with arts professionals such as curators, collectors and established artists.
Through this process they try to find common ground in their practice and work despite the diversity of their styles, mediums, background and education. The structure creates opportunities for camaraderie, friendly criticism, and artistic community. DCAC organizes two curated Sparkplug exhibitions for the group—one each year of the program.
