The Blurb of Bob, Volume 3, Number 3

August 29, 2019

HEY, GUYS!

A Creative Opportunity
1. Do you want to see the breadth and depth of artistic talent of our community, but insulated from the elements in an enclosed structure, complete with power?
2. Have you ever wanted to see your art displayed, gallery style, where all your favorite burners could fully appreciate it?
3. Do you have smaller scale canvas, sculptural, fabric, or photographic art that you would be excited to have displayed?
4. Maybe you would like to create new art (possibly financed by an art grant) before AfterBurn?

For the Burns Phambly Reunion at Camp AfterBurn we are excited that we will provide such a space. The Art Grant Committee has a vision of creating a gallery to honor and appreciate the incredibly talented artists we have in our community, complete with a gallery opening party.

Go to Burnt Oranges – Art Grants to submit your desire to participate: https://burntoranges.org/about-burnt-oranges/art-grants/ If you have any questions, please direct them to artgrantcommittee@burntoranges.org.

Share Your Imagination
Your Committee would like to provide a commemorative ticket and sticker for our Burns Phambly Reunion (like the good old times). We want you, the community, to create the design to represent this year’s theme: Burns Phambly Reunion at Camp AfterBurn.

Please send your design as a .gif or .jpeg file to the Committee email: abc2019@burntoranges.org with a small description and your name for proper credit. Submissions for ticket/sticker designs will be open until September 15th at midnight.

Leaders Needed
A huge Thank You to our returning and new Leads & Co-Leads. We still need Leads and Co-Leads in the following areas:

Leads: Sound Marshal, Theme Camps
Co-Leads: Dogs, Cats, Earth Guardians, Volunteer Coordinator, Parking, Certified LifeGuard(s), Shower Guardians, Sound Marshal, Theme Camps

If you want to be a part of the fun and creativity that goes into creating the canvas for AfterBurn, step up to fill one of these great roles by emailing your Committee at abc2019@burntoranges.org.

How ’bout that?

HEY, GUYS!

Your Event Committee has listened to you, and we’re happy to confirm that we’ve found a new location for Camp AfterBurn. It’s FLAT, with showers, LOTS of shade and fewer ants. More information will be coming soon.

Calling all our artists and dreamers!

1. Do you art?
2. Do you want to share your art with the community at our Burns Phambly Reunion at Camp AfterBurn?
3. Are you ready to bring your “A” game?
4. Would an art grant help you do this?

If you said yes to all of the above, your time has come.

The period for formal submissions of art grants, including burnable art, is open. It will close at midnight on Sunday, September 15th.

There will be at least $5,000 available for art grants at AfterBurn.

This year we have decided to let the Phambly decide what art they would like to see brought to the event. After the submission period closes on September 15th, the Art Grant Committee will open the grants up to the Community for voting.

All references to artists and camps will be removed; we are asking that the artists allow each submission to be judged according to the art’s own merits. Voting will be via a Facebook poll, similar to the one used for the event committee members. Note: Any grant requests received after September 15th at midnight will not be considered for the community vote.

New this year: We will have some enclosed structures with electricity available to display your art and keep it safe from the elements.

Information on how to submit your art grant and online forms for submission can be found at https://burntoranges.org/about-burnt-oranges/art-grants/

Submissions for the Effigy and Temple should be sent to your Event Committee via email at ABC2019@burntoranges.org

We can’t wait to see what your creativity will bring to life!

How ’bout that?

Bob, on behalf of your AfterBurn Event Committee
