Call for Art!

Comfort & Joy is a volunteer-driven community non-profit where our members donate their time and skills. In order to further our mission we want to foster and promote welcoming spaces and nurturing community through ART!

We have two calls for art now, installation pieces for Art in the Grove and a call for digital art for Faetronica.

Installation Art

We are offering artists and designers the unique opportunity to create for the AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park. We need your help welcoming the C&J community into a sacred place of remembrance, recognition, and celebration. Proposals need to be self-supporting installations or require only a "light use" of the trees, rock walls, redwood forest paths, and grass that make up the Grove; in addition, thought should be given to how projects can be used again at the Burn.

Digital Art Library

We'd like to support queer and allied production through purchasing usage rights to digital art for promotion of our events, announcements, and general communications. Our digital art collection is an ongoing endeavor to collect and exhibit art which mirrors our values and organizational vision; note that the primary purpose of this call is to purchase usage rights to existing works, not to commission new pieces. In particular, pieces thematically matching Faetronica are encouraged: neon, futuristic and fantasy visions of extragalactic love, deep-space daydreams and the cosmic revelry of faeries and mystical creatures.
