What does HOME mean to YOU?
Join the Habitat Door Project - a unique collaborative project which will bring together local artists as part of the 2017 Hard Hats & High Heels Gala to support Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento ’s mission of creating a world where everyone has a safe, decent place to call home.
The Habitat for Humanity Doors Project is a new collaborative project that is part of the 2017 Hard Hats & High Heels Gala. The project will bring together local artists to support Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento’s mission of creating a world where everyone has a safe, decent place to call home.
Chaired by celebrated artist William Ishmael with panel members Pamela Skinner (Skinner Howard Gallery Owner) and Michael Dunlavey (owner of Dunlavey Studios) – the unique #HabitatDoors project invites local artists to celebrate their talents while making a statement and bringing attention and support to the importance of affordable homeownership opportunities in our local community.
ABOUT THE DOORS PROJECT
This new and unique element to the Habitat Gala will bring together interested, selected, socially-conscious local artists to create artwork on a recycled door (provided by the Habitat ReStore) in the theme of “what home means to you.”. Artwork can include, but is not limited to, painting, collage, recycled materials, and more. Creativity and inventiveness are encouraged.
The doors will be displayed prior to the Gala for public viewing at ArtHouse on R and will be part of their Second Saturday event in April and then auctioned off on Friday, April 28th as part of the event.
Participating artists will receive one event and one VIP reception ticket to the event, a small stipend to cover the cost of supplies needed to paint the doors, and the opportunity to keep 25% or 50% of the auction sale price of their door (or donate 100% to Habitat as a full tax write-off).
All participating artists must submit an online RFP and be approved by our judges panel. 6-10 finalists will be selected to participate.
SUBMIT A PROPOSAL
Interested participating artists were encouraged to submit an online Request For Proposal (RFP) .
All proposals must have been received by January 13th . Proposals are currently being thoughtfully reviewed by our panel of pre-selected jurors. Final projects will be announced and the artists notified on January 20th.
All artwork must be original and needs to be completed for display by March 24th. Doors must remain intact and be weather-proofed.
