Call for Submission. Altered paper coffee cups. 

The exhibition #CautionMayBeHot is open to all who want to participate. It will be hosted in San Francisco by Fayes and in Oakland by Long Weekend simultaneously!  

Coffee cups are ubiquitous everyday objects, especially in the Bay Area. We wait in line for coffee. It is something you hold in your hand on your way to work. Warms you up when it’s foggy out. A pickup in your afternoon. It’s relatively affordable. You have coffee dates and work sessions. #CautionMayBeHot is about transforming this ordinary object into a work of art.

This will be the third show of its kind. Last year we put on #strikeawayshow with 500 works from 250 artists. The year before that 3636 Project. And we want to keep the momentum going!

What you do. Alter a 12 oz paper coffee cup. (Size approximation for international submission OK.) Alter means anything - paint, draw, tear, burn, build on top of the cup. You supply the cup. We do not give you cups. All pieces will be hung on the wall. Please include a hole or hanger in your piece. Anything not hangable will not be exhibited. Two entries max per person.

Submission fee. There is a submission fee of $5 per piece (max two submissions per person) due upon delivery of the work. We learned a few things from the first two shows, namely installation costs dollars. This will help cover installation and opening receptions. Please deliver a 5 dollar bill cash per submission. Literally, tape a $5 Lincoln to your submission when you drop it off or mail it.  (If international, paypal is OK: courtneycerruti@gmail.com).
