From December 8, 2017 through January 7, 2018, the Georgetown GLOW exhibition will make its fourth annual debut with an outdoor display of light-art installations. In anticipation of this year’s upcoming, stunning event, the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) is inviting artists to submit proposals by May 5.

This event is part of the BID’s overall holiday programming, which also includes ice skating and a holiday window competition. This event is open to artists who work with performance, video, and sculpture. Light cannot simply illuminate the artwork; it must be an essential, integral role in the concept. This year’s theme is “Connectivity.”

The Georgetown BID and curator Dierdre Ehlen MacWilliams will select approximately 10 artists. Their preference will go to new artworks that use light as the primary medium, that are durable, and that stick to the theme in a surprising and thoughtful way.

There are three budget categories one can apply for: less than $5,000, between $5,000 and $12,000, and between $12,000 and $25,000.
