Thank you for your interest in The Imaginary Million, a one-night "auction" for artists that seeks to foster a culture of peer-collecting and empower artists as both the leading voice and talent in Atlanta's burgeoning arts economy. The Imaginary Million will feature 100 artists, from emerging to established, living or working in the metro Atlanta area. Varying disciplines, experiences, and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The 100 artists will be selected by a jury of artists and arts professionals.

You are allowed to submit up to 3 works of art ready for exhibition and auction. Please complete all sections of this application form. The deadline to apply is October 31, 2016 at 11:59 PM. Artists will be selected and notified by November 11, 2016.

Selected artists will receive:
  • free admission to The Imaginary Million event on December 9, 2016 at Les Fai do-do
  • invitation to the VIP event for The Imaginary Million 
  • an imaginary $10,000 for The Imaginary Million event to "bid" on artworks

About the Auction

The Imaginary Million is an "art auction" + art party + dance party + fundraiser = BIG TIME FUN. Only the artists will have the opportunity to "bid" on the artwork of their peers with imaginary currency that they are provided by WonderRoot while event guests will have another opportunity to purchase artworks. There will be a DJ, silent and live auction, and cocktails!

WonderRoot co-hosted The Imaginary Million in October 2012. 

Thanks for reaching out to the venue at WonderRoot. Please understand that we receive a high volume of applications and are a small volunteer staff - we respond to all inquiries as quickly as we are able. However, due to the high volume, we may not be able to respond to unsuccessful applicants. Please do not submit multiple applications and allow at least 2 weeks for a response. Preference will be given to shows with a completed line-up. Proceeds are a 70/30 split for artist/WonderRoot.
Because we are a small staff hosting many shows, all promotion is the responsibility of the artists. You are encouraged to promote at WonderRoot and posters mailed to us will be hung. 
All of our shows are all ages and $5 unless presented with compelling reasons otherwise (the decision is at WonderRoot management's discretion). 
Love,
WonderRoot
