Fence Art Gallery Project: Call to Artists and Sponsors

Deadline Friday March 14th
While the new hotel is being built at the corner of Xenia Avenue and Limestone Street, the construction site will be hidden from view behind wooden panels which will be decorated with a temporary art gallery. This spring, a series of 42 panels will be installed above the chain link fence that currently circles the property and they will remain up through the fall. 

We invite YOU to be a part of this exciting project!

Artists:  The Yellow Springs Arts Council is looking for artists to decorate these 4′ x 4′ panels. Participating artists will receive a stipend. This project is open to all artists. While it is ideally suited for painters, artists of all types are welcome to apply, as long as your finished work can be sealed against the weather and will remain affixed to a vertical surface. Learn more on the  Call to Artists then download an Artist Application and send it to us by Friday, March 14.

Businesses, Organizations and Individuals:  This is your chance to take part in a one-of-a-kind advertising opportunity that will support our vibrant arts community while providing additional visibility for your business or organization during the prime summer months. Sponsor a panel and have your name clearly displayed on it. You can invite an artist of your choosing to create your panel, or we will choose one from the artists who apply to be a part of the project. The cost of this summer-long advertising opportunity is just $100 per panel. To be a part of this exciting partnership, simply  complete this form and return it to us by Friday, March 14.
