The 2019 selected piece will be a painting, drawing, print, graphic art or photograph that captures the “spirit of celebration” that the Downtown Fargo Street Fair brings to the Fargo-Moorhead community each July.

A panel of artists, advisory board members, and the Downtown Community Partnership will choose the piece that will be the official art for the event. The signatures on the artwork will be covered during the jury process in order to keep anonymity.

Please call ahead (701-241-1570) to ensure someone is at the office. Only delivered works will be allowed (no photographic, slide or electronic submissions of the original art). Artist selected will be notified by May 10th.
