CALL FOR FEATURED ARTIST for the 2016 Avenues Street Fair:

Each year the street fair committee selects a local artist to create an original artwork that represents the artist's idea of what the Avenues means to them. The art becomes the theme of the Street Fair and is used in all our promotional materials and on our event t-shirt. The Featured Artist receives a complimentary booth at the Street Fair.

Please see the Featured Artist Program outline HERE. Submit your letter of interest and sample work by April 2, 2016 to gaccchair@slc-avenues.org.

See past artwork from the Featured Artists from 1996 through 2015 HERE.
