Ingenuity has always been about bringing together artists and urban landscapes. With the move to the bridge in 2010, possibilities are greatly expanded. From dark tunnels, to subterranean lakes, to expansive views of the city, we can’t stop thinking about the cool things that could happen in this space. But we want to hear from you….
Our official Call to Artist form is ready to fill our here: Link

The deadline is May 1, 2010 (if you download a paper application, it can be postmarked May 1 or delivered to our offices by May 1 by noon). BUT BEFORE YOU SUBMIT ANYTHING…
Take some time to get to know the bridge. This is a completely unique space with several venues including:
- A stage placed in the middle of water collected under the east end of the bridge.
- Several small stages on either side of the bridge
- A tunnel extending into darkness
- Several small black box spaces
- Nearly a mile of bridge spanning a river
- A parking lot space that can be viewed from the bridge
We will be conducting artist walkthroughs monthly. All will take place at 1:30PM. Artists can meet James Levin at the Engineers Service Garage on the Superior Viaduct, across from St Malachai Church.
Tour Dates all at 1:30 PM:
- Friday Dec 18
- January 22
- Feb 19
- March 19
- April 16
Because this festival is in a more confined space, we will be seeking “site specific” and environmental work and encourage artists to attend one of the tours.
In terms of budgets, this year we’re looking to fund the bulk of projects for under $2,500. Having said that, we are looking one larger-scale installation/exhibit that can bring attention either to the bridge from afar, or something that can course through the entire structure. We would consider funding one larger scale exhibit at a higher level if it grabs out attention.
