First Annual Juried NEW RIVER RENDEZVOUS Outdoor / Interactive Art Exhibition

May 17-19 2013


In collaboration with the New River Alliance of Climbers, New River Rendezvous, and Yoidles Productions, we are pleased to announce the expansion of the art presence to include the first annual outdoor exhibition outdoor art in New River Gorge, Fayetteville, WV for the 10th annual New River Rendezvous on May 17-19, 2013. All proposals for interactive sculptures, environmental art, and performances will be considered.

Sculptural works can be constructed of any material and should leave “no trace” following removal. Interactive works are particularly welcomed as climbers and festival goers retire and enjoy the variety of activities and events offered at the Rendezvous. This exhibition will provide a unique opportunity to present interactive work to a creative free-thinking audience that is much more physically engaged and active than a typical audience.


All accepted work will be archived on the NRAC website. Application fee is $35 for up to (3) pieces. All applicants, whether accepted or not, can attend the festival for free (while tickets are available) which includes music, food ,drink (beer and wine), entertainment spectacles (stupid human tricks), and camping, in a world-class outdoor town for white water rafting, climbing, and hiking. In your application you must STATE WHETHER OR NOT YOU PLAN ON ATTENDING (so we can register you). All proceeds will go to NRAC ( which is a local organization dedicated to protecting outdoor recreation and climbing resources environmental impact and access in the New River Gorge and surrounding area.
