RECEPTION; SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 12-2pm
(Rinker Community Center, 4108, 4th Street N, Arlington, VA 22203)
Email photo to: Sushmita Ideas & Design <email@example.com>
CALL for ENTRIES: Facebook is a great place to see photos of friends from before I knew them. Recently I saw a photo of my friend Aida from 1975, and she looks like a Bollywood star! Then there is a young Studio member who comes to the Studio and paints costumes she creates of her favorite video game characters. Another Studio member changes who she is depending on who she needs to bring JOY to.
So come meet Aida, Jillian, and Rachel, at our February Community PAUSE. See photos of people’s pasts, hear stories of their presents, and get a glimpse of what else we can be if we choose to. An afternoon of stories of acceptance, surprises, possibilities, and inspiration! Join in!
Send me a photo of YOU from before I knew you!
1. Title it with Your Name, and the Year the photo was taken (e.g.: above, Aida and Ibrahim, Jan 20, 1975)
2. Scan it and/or send it to me digitally as a hi-res (300 dpi or more) jpg file
3. Min 5×7 max 8×10
4. Email it to me with Subject: Feb Show
5. DEADLINE: Wed., Feb 17.
I will print them out and fill the Guest Wall at the studio with photos from the past!
THE EVENT: Sat Feb 20, 12:00 pm – 2 pm At the Community PAUSE, you are invited to come see the show, share your stories and listen to stories the guests imagine from your images too—building community through our art and stories! And feel free to bring light refreshments to share.

OPEN DESIGN COMPETITION
DUPONT UNDERGROUND, WASHINGTON DC
DEADLINE: 11:59:59 p.m. (EDT) on Friday, March 4, 2016
Re-Ball! is an open design competition to turn 650,000+ 3-inch, white, translucent plastic balls into a site-specific installation in the Dupont Underground’s 14,000-square-foot east platform. The balls were previously part of the National Building Museum’s blockbuster 2015 summer destination The Beach.
Re-Ball! is open to everyone across all disciplines: artists, architects, designers, and the general public. The winning entry should be thoughtful, provocative, witty, safe, and executable on a limited budget, in a limited time frame, and within the confines of the site.
CONCEPT: Re-Ball! challenges entrants to create an installation re-using the 650,000+ ball-pit balls that first appeared in the Beach installation. The winning concept will take the medium in a new direction, one that responds to the uniqueness of the installation site. From the open, light-filled box of the National Building Museum’s Great Hall to the curving concrete volume of the Dupont Underground’s east platform, Re-Ball! entries should transform the constituent materials — and the space itself — into an entirely new experience.
MATERIALS: The Re-Ball! balls are made of recyclable, hypoallergenic plastic. They are soft enough to be malleable, but firm enough to maintain their shape. They have a uniform surface with no holes and are easily punctured or cut. Entrants may use any other materials in conjunction with the balls and may alter the balls in any way they see fit to create their vision, provided that the proposal is constructible within the allotted space, time, and budget. The competition doesn’t require that every single ball be used (we estimate that there are between 650,000 and 700,000 of them), but the balls must feature prominently in the installation.
Those who make the early registration deadline (11:59:59 p.m., February 4) will receive a kit of three plastic balls, to better understand the materials

SMITHSONIAN CALL TO PHOTOGRAPHERS FOR ROCK ‘N’ ROLL IMAGES
Smithsonian is asking the public to dig through their attics, basements, closets, shoe boxes, digital cameras, photo albums and photo upload sites and send them photographs and stories that illustrate great moments in rock ‘n’ roll history. They want rock’n’roll as seen through your eyes: at clubs, concerts, festivals, and beyond. This site will be used to inform several upcoming projects on the history of rock ‘n’ roll at the Smithsonian. For instance, Smithsonian Books is compiling a book of rare or never-published photographs telling the history of rock ‘n’ roll, and may select photographs or stories from the Smithsonian Rock ‘n’ Roll Website for inclusion in that publication, or a related exhibition.
