"Art Unhinged" - Doors Project Update 

The July 1st deadline for "Art Unhinged" is almost here.  Please complete the two page application and submit it with your sketch and check for $25 payable to the Troy Community Coalition. 
Photos of the doors are now available on the city's website at:
http://www.troymi.gov/communityaffairs/ArtUnhingedPhotos.asp .

The City of Troy's information page for "Art Unhinged" is located here:
http://www.troymi.gov/communityaffairs/artunhinged.asp  .

Jury results will be determined by August 1, 2008. Voided checks will be returned to those not accepted. Artists will received 1/3 of the auction price.  

More details and dates are contained in the downloadable application form which is in MS Word format:  "Art Unhinged" - Artist Application Form. 

ALSO - we have some information about the composition of the doors. They are flat steel and we have been told they are NOT galvanized and do not contain lead.  Being that they were functioning doors, they will have handles and hinges. They have a core, but we don't know what the core-fill is.  More details will follow as soon as it is available.
