CALL FOR SUBMISSION
The Museum of Everyday Life is soliciting participation in the creation of its upcoming exhibition featuring locks & keys, which will open on Sunday May 27th, 2018! The Museum of Everyday Life is a five year-old venture whose goal is to explore, analyze and celebrate everyday life objects. For this exhibition, we are seeking contributions consisting of or relating to all aspects of locks and keys, including but not limited to padlocks, door locks, combination locks, lever handle locks, cam locks, rim/mortise locks, profile cylinder locks, wooden pin tumbler locks, double-sided keys, dimple keys, barrel keys, skeleton keys, tubular keys, paracentric keys, abloy keys, key cards, etc. We will explore related topics such as imprisonment, escape artists, chastity belts, diaries, safe cracking, locksmithing and lock picking. We welcome your contributions in any form, from personal artifacts accompanied by your individual narrative; vague, raw ideas for displays as well as fully realized art objects ready to hang; theoretical writings, research, and of course we will be in need of plenty of raw material so any old keys or locks you’d like to get rid of would be welcome as well. Please be aware that this is a self-service institution and does not always have staff on hand, therefore the safety and security of donated objects cannot be guaranteed, although every effort is made to keep all donations as secure and safe as possible. Sometimes the volume of contributions that we receive mean that we are unable to display everything; the museum curatorial staff makes the final display decisions. Please submit your proposal by April 15th. Finished objects must be received no later than May 10th. To contribute to the exhibition, or for more information, contact Clare Dolan via the “contact us” form on the Museum website www.museumofeverydaylife.org. Our mailing address is 3482 Dry Pond Rd., Glover, VT 05839.Contributors who include a self-addressed, postage-paid envelope or box with their entry will ensure that it will be returned upon completion of the exhibition.
Interested in participating in the exhibit installation? Community work days will be May 4th & May 6th, and weekends of May 12th–13th, and May 19th– 20th. Intensive installation week will be from May 21st through May 26th, 2018. Make sure you use the “contact us” form on the museum website to let museum staff know when you plan to attend.
