The Bioneers Conference will take place May 13-15th, 2022 at the  Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.

We are looking for art in these five categories:

  1. LARGE ART INSTALLATIONS: The Palace of Fine Arts has a huge indoor space with very high ceilings, large pieces would do very well here. Our goal is to curate the conference space with visually stimulating and thought provoking art.
  2. SMAll INSTALLATIONS, SCULPTURES AND PAINTINGS: We will be creating an art gallery inside the Palace of Fine Arts and are looking for socially engaged art pieces to enliven the space.
  3. LIVE PAINTERS: We are looking for painters who would like to live paint indoors to help activate the conference grounds. At the end of the conference, you have the option to include your painting in the silent auction for a shared split.
  4. INTERACTIVE INSTALLATIONS We are looking for interesting interactive installations, such as VR displays, that guests can engage with
  5. COMMUNITY ART PROJECT: We’re looking for art projects that can be done indoors and involve the greater Bioneers community, let’s activate the space with community art! Examples include inviting guests to paint prayer flags, posters, murals, community mandalas, etc. Please consider re-usable materials.
