You may already have seen this on the RSC website or indeed received an email from the RSC but I wanted to draw your attention to this request for contributions to an exhibition that will run in the new RST. Although the term used is artwork don’t be put off if you can not draw. If you look on the website they are actually look for memory boxes which capture the essence of the theatre.

I think mine would need to have  the old RSC purple and the silver, gold and white from Alan Howard’s Henry IV but I can not work out how to capture the excitement of seeing your first show. Anyway have a think and maybe something will come to mind that you could capture and it would be displayed in the walls of the new to remind us what the theatre is all about. 

The RSC release is as follows

 “We are looking for imaginative artwork for a new exhibition. Created by artist Luke Jerram, My RSC Gallery consists of 50 small boxes embedded in to the walls of the new Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. We want every box to contain a special piece of artwork inspired by Shakespeare, theatre or the RSC. For example your artwork might represent a favourite Shakespeare play, capture a memorable moment in theatre, depict a much loved quote or portray an iconic character. 

To find some of the artwork we are running a competition – open to individuals aged 18 years and over and based in the UK. Go to www.myrscgallery.com  for more information on how to enter the competition and see your artwork displayed in our new home. Please refer to the competition criteria and terms and conditions before entering. My RSC Gallery was created for the RSC by Luke Jerram.

Deadline for submissions is 31 August 2010.
