Calls for Artists

As the umbrella organization for the arts in our Metro area, one of our main functions is to be a resource for local artists. One of the ways we do that is by posting Calls for Artists. Please read each Call for Artists carefully, as most of these calls are through outside organizations or businesses who have particular rules or regulations about the work they want you to create for them. They also indicate where and when you need to submit your work.

Also note: We post every Call for Artists as we receive them, so the Call listed on the top of the page is the most recent Call we’ve received, but isn’t necessarily listed by deadline date. Scroll through this entire page to ensure you do not miss any opportunities as deadlines quickly approach.

A great way to stay in touch with these opportunities is to sign up for our weekly newsletter, delivered to your inbox every Thursday. We occasionally offer opportunities to our Partners first before the general public, so we recommend becoming a Partner with us.

Happy creating!
