Waldo County Open Space Festival, in its second year, emphasizes the value of locally-owned small businesses to maintaining open space, wilderness and farmland because they eliminate the need for more commercial development and urban sprawl.
This year they have received a grant that enables them to commission 2 artists to create small facades of Main Street, Waldo County: 4’ x 4’ (minimum) facades that represent kinds of businesses in Waldo County.
General categories, not limited to these (no commercial names may be used):
Hardware & Lumber
Transportation Feed & Grain
Garden Supplies Handcrafts
Gallery Animal Care
You choose a category or two, you sketch, our jury chooses 2 renderings. An artist may do more than one, and collaborations are acceptable.
Deadline for submission of sketches is February 1, 2014.
Notification of selected artwork by February 15, 2015.
Sketches should be approx to scale, color or b&w w/colors indicated.
