In partnership with Art League RI, AAA Northeast is looking to purchase artwork for its newly renovated, modern headquarters building located in Providence, RI. The redesigned facility has created welcoming spaces where people can work together, share ideas, and build community, and this exhibition is part of AAA’s initiative to populate this new office with representative artworks.
AAA Northeast is one of the largest and most innovative not-for-profit organizations, providing advocacy on behalf of all motorists, as well as many specialized services – such as automotive services, insurance, financial services, and travel – for the benefit of its members. AAA Northeast is comprised of over 3,200 employees across more than 70 locations. They serve 6.2 million members across Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and New Hampshire.
As part of the organization's diversity, equity and inclusion initiative, the focal point of this call for art is "Community Matters." AAA Northeast is seeking artwork that celebrates the cultural and ethnic diversity of its employees and the populations it serves throughout its regional footprint. Its regional footprint is comprised of the states noted above. A few examples of potential themes could be the gathering of family and friends, scenes of festivals which celebrate traditions, neighborhood scenes and architecture, crowd photography that highlights a community, etc.
Helping and serving the community is a way of life at AAA Northeast and is one of its primary value statements. More than just words, it is an essential quality exemplified by the varied, impactful work employees perform daily. Ideally, the work of local artists within AAA Northeast’s regional footprint will submit work that will enliven the space and reflect the communities served.
Please read this prospectus carefully and only consider submitting work if you are certain you can comply with the requirements and timetable outlined in this document. By submitting artwork to this Call for Entry, and if your work is selected for this exhibition, you agree to exhibit your work from December 10, 2022, through January 14, 2023.
