The Award Exhibition will take place Friday, May 17th at 9:06 PM following Andrew Benson’s site-specific projections in the courtyard of the Phoenix Hotel during the ArtSlant Afterparty at ArtPadSF. Top submissions to the Award contest will be projected onto the wall adjacent to the Phoenix Hotel (shown above) and viewable in virtual exhibition on ArtSlant.com following the installation. We will also be putting top submissions throughout the submission period on our tumblr.
