In September of 2023, we organized an event at a man-made swimming hole called Hadad’s Lake.

With an interest in place-based art making and public art, we put out an open call asking artist to embrace the unique environment and use it to display their works in fun inventive ways. The result was a day filled with art, music, swimming and sunshine. This included twelve visual artists, five performers, and four arts/craft vendors, all of whom added a special dimension to the event.

Special thanks to Hadad’s Lake for allowing us to explore this curatorial concept. They were very open and generous to our expressions and it could not have happened without them.

Thank you to the artists and performers who shared their work and made the day rich with expression.

Hi Richmond 👋
we’re organizing an open-air art show at the legendary Hadad’s Lake, and looking for a selection of 10-20 works to install all over the park. We are accepting all forms of art, but highly encourage floating art, place-based earthworks, murals, and unique temporary installations. We suggest going to Hadad’s and speaking with Dorian if you would like to do a custom install on one of the structures there, they will be offering half off entry to artists. Just tell them Mauricio sent ya 😉. Or email us and we’ll help you problem solve.

If interested, please send you’re proposals to: and we will get back to you with any questions and concerns about your project.

Submissions will be taken on a rolling basis, so the sooner you submit something, the better chances of being included. Can’t wait to see what you all make! Talk soon!
