It is a simple way to replace that ‘in-person’ experience that’s impossible in our uncertain times, with something as authentic and unique. We won’t be able to open our physical doors this year, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t invite visitors to see our work, our workspaces, and hear our thoughts about art and art making.
Your video can be as simple or as complicated as you wish! The only requirements: it needs to be short—3 minute maximum—and in MP4 (not MOV) format. Talk about your process, laugh into the camera, do a short and strange art video (with your artwork in it!), or all of the above. The purpose is to introduce yourself to the visitors to SOS’s new YouTube Channel.
You must be a registered SOS 2020 artist to participate.

There is no deadline, but SOS artists and visitors always look forward to the first weekend in May, and it would be great to have some videos by then.
The SOS Virtual Gallery team is looking forward to seeing your creations!
Video should be not more than 3 minutes long.
Save the video as an MP4 file (not MOV).
