Thank you for your interest in bringing your art to Boston Decompression 2016: Da Vinci’s Pawnshop!. We will have approximately 5000-6000 square feet of indoor space available for our use plus outdoor space in the parking lot and provided we can secure fire permits, we should be able to have fire art this year! Having a new venue this year provides a lot of interesting opportunities for large-scale indoor art, outdoor art, theme appropriate deco projects, and new opportunities for art cars, and theme camps!
INDOORS (Main shop area and several smaller classrooms): The main shop area will house the dance floor area. There is a large wall that video can be projected on. Ceiling supports in the main shop area are rated up to several tons. The smaller classrooms are between 10'x10' and 10'x20'.
OUTDOORS: There is a 24'x40' aluminum stage that can be moved. There are walls on 2 sides of the outdoor area that have murals on them. There is also a creek that runs in front of the property (something of a moat) that could be dressed up in some artistic fashion. (Keeping in mind that fish have been observed.) The outdoor space provides ample space for free-standing installations, big sculptures, art cars, and theme camps —BUT you must be prepared for cold and/or inclement weather. Projections can be done outside on screens, video-mapping and other interactive or non-interactive video proposals are most welcome.
TRANSPORTATION: If you need assistance getting your project to the venue, we can help with transportation arrangements. There will be an art truck collecting pieces from various locations around the Boston metro area. Also, to encourage new work from outside the Boston metro area, we may be able to help arrange transportation from larger distances. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about transportation.
