PlatteForum’s Artist Residency program supports contemporary artists as they work, strengthening individual practice through collaboration and community engagement. Our residencies are designed to celebrate creativity and foster and challenge artists to incorporate a bit of social practice, or social narrative into their process. Each resident artist becomes a catalyst for innovative and expansive thinking about what art is and can be.

While artists share their creative process and work with youth, PlatteForum gives guidance and ongoing support throughout each artist residency and beyond. Such support generates dialogue with the larger community about the role of the artist in society. Located in a rich urban context, PlatteForum’s dynamic, artist-centered residencies engage this community in the creation of new work where artists, youth, and the public collaborate.

Preference will be given to artists whose work addresses the larger questions in our world today such as race, class, social and ecological issues. In doing this we hope to provoke dialogue that helps shape our public narratives and cultural conversations.

Call for Entires: Art & Soul: Soul Struck

Art & Soul: Soul Struck

Deadline to Enter: March 2, 2015

Juror: Christoph Heinrich, Director of the Denver Art Museum


Humanity has long deliberated over the definition and existence of the soul. Is it the essence of life, our true self or a moral compass? Perhaps it is nothing more than an emotional fervor. From immortality personified to allegorical contrivance, the soul resists a single definition. Juror selected artists utilize their chosen media to address these contradictory perspectives.

Eligibility: Art & Soul - Soul Struck is a biennial, national juried exhibition of original artwork open to artists that work in a wide variety of media. The exhibition is open to national artists at least 18 years of age. Eligible work is any original piece that correlates with the exhibit description and has been created over the course of 2013-2015 (no earlier than 2013). 2-D work must be framed, ready to hang and met the ASLD framing specifications and parameters (see below). Any 3-D work must include instructions for display.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Art Students League of Denver (ASLD) will host their biennial fundraising gala, ART&SOUL on April 18, 2015. The ART&SOUL gala is a ticketed fundraising event to support the mission and programming of ASLD. In addition to the juried art, select work from invited, ASLD-affiliated artists will be available for auction (one night only). In keeping with ASLD’s standards that artists are always paid for the work, juried and invited artists will not be asked to donate work and ASLD will receive a standard commission for any art work sales.
