Business for the Arts of Broward Announces Open Call to Artists for 3rd Annual Art + Stroll Event
Business for the Arts of Broward (BFA) is seeking entries from established and emerging artists for its 3rd Annual ART + STROLL event. Presented by BBX Capital, the event takes place on Wednesday, November 17 from 5 to 8 p.m. in downtown Fort Lauderdale in the lobbies of buildings 401, 301 and 201 E. Las Olas Blvd.
BFA will accept 2D work, no larger than 30” wide by 60” high, and 3D art such as sculpture, ceramics, fashion, or any other free-standing artwork. Accepted artists are responsible for providing pedestal to display and will have to set up/deliver their art themselves.
There is no fee to enter. Works selected are based on originality, creativity, craftsmanship and artistic distinction. All work(s) must be submitted as a 300 dpi jpeg(s) via online submission at bfabroward.org/programs/art-stroll/art-stroll-artist-entry-form. Artists may submit up to two different works for consideration that they have personally created. Each digital jpeg file of the submitted work must be included in the ART + STROLL artist’s online entry form. Artwork in jpeg format should be saved with the artist’s name and title.
The deadline to submit is Friday, September 17 by midnight via online form submission. Accepted artists will be notified in early October and will receive two (2) complimentary tickets to the event. Accepted works may be used for marketing purposes and one artwork will be chosen from the entries for the ART + STROLL poster to be sold at the event. The chosen artist will receive a $1,000 cash prize for the use of their artwork in the poster. Artists will have the opportunity to showcase and sell their work to event attendees from the business community and several key sponsors. Artists will be responsible for delivery of work to buyer, if sold. BFA will keep 25% commission of any sold artwork.
