A CALL FOR CREATIVITY
Schlesinger Center Invites Art Exhibit Applications For 2002

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (November 5, 2001) - The Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center, located on the Alexandria Campus of Northern Virginia Community College, is looking for artists to display their work in the Margaret W. and Joseph L. Fisher Art Gallery. The gallery currently holds Mrs. Fisher's work, and will through the end of the year. All artists and organizations throughout the Northern Virginia area are eligible.
To apply, artists must submit the following:

  • A completed application form with each entry.
  • A maximum of 12 slides that represent the artist's work.
  • The artist's resume.
  • A brief description of the work to be considered for exhibition attached to application form.


The Schlesinger Center must receive all proposals by 5:00 p.m. on December 7, 2001. Works can be in both two- and three- dimensional formats. Chosen exhibits will be based on proposals and studio visits. Finalists will be notified by January 4, 2002. The first of at least six exhibits will debut in February 2002.

The Center, with its breathtaking 1,000-seat Mary Collier Baker Theater, beautiful glass-enclosed Wachovia Forum, intimate Margaret W. and Joseph L. Fisher Art Gallery and Internet-ready seminar rooms, is already being touted as the premier performing arts venue on this side of the Potomac.

The Schlesinger Center is named for the late wife of Dr. James R. Schlesinger, former U.S. Secretary of Defense and Secretary of Energy. Mrs. Schlesinger was a violinist and board member of the Arlington Symphony until her death in 1995. Dr. Schlesinger donated $1 Million to name the Center in his wife's memory. Dozens of local corporations, foundations and individual donors also generously contributed to the Center.

For more information on the Schlesinger Center, or for an application to exhibit, please contact Managing Director Leslie White at lwhite@nvcc.edu or 703-845-6156.
