Spier Art Walk: Hotel
The Creative Block
Keep walking. You're heading to the striking red artwork at the end of the path.
Another Spier arts initiative is The Creative Block.
It invites artists, both established and emerging, to create work on an 18cm x 18cm blank block. The blocks are submitted for critique, and the best are purchased for resale to corporate patrons and the general public.
Collectors then choose a number of blocks to hang together, building an impactful, collective artwork that has the potential to be greater than the sum of its parts.
Artists can submit blocks monthly and if selected, get paid immediately. For many artists, this is a vital source of income.
