Have you ever fantasized about spending a entire night in a museum? Well, what if you had an entire night to play–or make art–in a fully equipped broadcast television studio?

As part of tpt‘s new initiative Open Air, focused on making public media even more public in the Twin Cities, we’re opening up Studio A, the station’s largest television studio space, for a local artist to create an installation as part of the Northern Spark Festival on June 8-9. The studio is a 4,000 square foot black-box broadcast studio, with a light grid overhead.

Preference will be given to projects that highlight the changing nature of media–and that build on the unique qualities of a television studio. In particular, we’d like an installation that is highly interactive and will draw a crowd.

We’re offering a stipend of $1500, plus a multimedia blog post on MN Original‘s MNO on the Go blog and promotion on tpt‘s and MN Original‘s social media platforms.

Application deadline is midnight, CST, Monday, March 11, 2013.
