Plaza District Festival Call for Artists - Festival Lounge
Plaza District seeks local artists to show in the Plaza Festival Lounge
The 19th Annual Plaza District Festival is calling for artists to submit art for a curated show in the Festival Lounge.
The Plaza District Association is now accepting submissions for Oklahoma artists to display and sell their work in the 2017 Plaza District “Festival Lounge,” September 30.
Curated by Stephen Kovash, we are looking both 3D and 2D work. Specifically we are looking for work that can be displayed outside in a garden, yard or public space. The work can be in any media but must be available for sale. Suggested Media include (but not limited to): Sculpture, Mural, Mosaic, Fiber, “Installation,” Mosaic Mural and Relief Sculpture. Materials should be durable and appropriate for outdoor display. Sales will be handled by the Plaza District Association (PDA) and the artist will receive a 70% commission. 30% of the sales will benefit the PDA. Artists may submit up to 10 pieces. Submissions should be high resolution jpegs or other commonly used image formats.
The Call for Entries is open to all visual artists. If you are interested in showing in the Festival Lounge, please forward your contact information, up to 10 high resolution images (at least 8 x 10 and 300 dpi) and price list to Stephen Kovash at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Plaza Festival will feature a wide array of live musicians, food trucks, visual artists, and children's activities. It is expected to attract more than 30,000 people from across the Oklahoma City metro area. The Festival is free and open to the public and offers the surrounding neighborhoods access to a family and dog-friendly arts festival right in the heart of their community.
“We are an all-local district and with the Festival, we exclusively focus on local talent, which Oklahoma has so much to be proud of,” said Cayla Lewis, Executive Director of the Plaza District Association. “The Plaza Festival is the perfect opportunity to showcase the renaissance of the Plaza District and provide a unique spotlight for Oklahoma’s artistic community.”
