IF WALLS COULD TALK: An Experiential Illustration Event at The Gladstone Hotel

The 2015 Call For Submissions is now closed.

About the 2014 exhibition:

The Gladstone Hotel and curator Leila Courey are pleased to announce the forthcoming If Walls Could Talk, a juried exhibition of experiential illustration that features work by emerging and established artists. The show will be on public display at the Gladstone Hotel from March 6–16, 2014. Selected projects use illustration—or other art forms related to it—to occupy or alter the hotel’s 2nd floor gallery and public spaces, in dramatic, conceptual, and experimental ways.

In May, the Gladstone’s website hosted the exhibition’s national call for submissions, with promotional support provided by media sponsor Applied Arts Magazine. In August, Leila and the exhibition’s jurists, listed below, reviewed, discussed, and selected proposals.
 Leila has collaborated with each participant to designate specific rooms and public spaces, and has lent support to each artist through the development of their projects.
