Having begun as the “All City Outdoor Festival” in 1950, Open Call has evolved into one of LA’s premier exhibitions for emerging artists and students to exhibit their artwork and achieve recognition through cash prizes. In 2014, nearly 400 artists lined up to deliver their artwork to the Gallery and this year’s biannual Open Call followed a different format with artists encouraged to freely interpret the notion of play. Only works that spoke to the theme were accepted and the mediums included sculpture, paintings, and photography.

This year’s juror is Scott Canty, who recently retired after 30 years with DCA’s Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. Canty began his time at LAMAG as a young curator developing exhibitions, education programs, special events, and, most notably, innovative initiatives including the City of Los Angeles (C.O.L.A.) Individual Artists Fellowship program.
