In 2007 Sparkplug was launched as DCAC’s artists collective. Participants are sought from all communities in the Washington, DC area with the goal of bringing together artists and curators from wide range of backgrounds and experiences and are given an environment in which to foster their development as a group. Each year we feature an exhibition of the entire Sparkplug group.

Around 10 members participate for 2 years, meeting on a monthly basis to critique each other’s work, discuss exhibitions around the area, visit each other’s studios, and meet with arts professionals such as curators, collectors and established artists. Through this process they try to find common ground in their practice and work despite the diversity of their styles, mediums, background and education.

Sparkplug is not currently accepting applications for new members.
