EMERGING ARTIST PROGRAM
2014 Emerging Artist Brea Wike
The Emerging Artist Program sponsors artists who have little or no experience in exhibiting their work in a professional venue. Emerging artists receive a free booth space and a tent at Art Fest, free regional publicity, the opportunity to gain valuable experience working with other artists and feedback from the public, an Art Fest artist mentor, and a $100 stipend for display materials.

Creativity happens live at the Grand Cities Art Fest! If you are an artist interested in demonstrating your work at the Grand Cities Art Fest and drawing more people to your tent, you can indicate your intent to participate on your artist application. The Grand Cities Art Fest publicizes the locations of each Arts in Action artist.
Green artists receive free advertising, signs for their booths, and are highlighted in the Official Art Fest Guide. Once artists are juried into the show, it's easy to be a Green Artist- just let us know that you use green materials and/or methods in your artwork.
