Call to artists for proposals to exhibit in RIDS's Gallery 55 for a summer 2016 show on Wildlife Trading and Conservation. This is a unique opportunity for artists to learn about the ways wildlife trade impacts a particular animal species, via initial self-directed research and in collaboration with scientists and wildlife experts, including International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) staff. Proposals are due April 8 (extended by 1 week); artwork July 4. The show will run July 14 - Aug 7 and be open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and Saturday night for WaterFire.

If you are interested and would like to discuss your ideas first, please feel free to email Dr. Lucy Spelman at to set up a phone conversation. Submissions should be emailed as a pdf to by April 8, 2016.  For the full CFP see or go to this link for the PDF.
