Art Detour 26 Call for Artists

CALL FOR ARTISTS – ARTLINK SEEKS 2-D WORK FOR ART DETOUR 26

Artlink Phoenix seeks to commission an artwork for Art Detour 26.  The work will be used in a designed format as the basis for the Art Detour 26 poster, postcard and other marketing materials. Local artists are encouraged to apply for this juried award that carries a $300 prize.

ABOUT ART DETOUR

Art Detour 26 will take place on March 8 & 9, 2014, throughout downtown Phoenix and beyond. Art Detour is the event that helped launch the First Fridays Art Walk phenomenon. The annual daytime event provides visitors the opportunity to meet visual artists in their working environments and to see into the creative spaces tucked throughout downtown that are generally not open to the public. The event gives the artists the opportunity to invite questions about their work and work processes.

GENERAL THEME/GUIDELINES

Art Detour invites the public to discover the downtown Phoenix arts community by offering premiere access to downtown artists and art experiences. 

The submitted artwork should create excitement and embody this sense of discovery and intimacy that the public experiences visiting private working studios and art spaces.
