As a part of the upcoming Show Up for the Arts campaign being launched by Cultural Arts Murfreesboro, we would like to showcase the wealth of artistic talent in our community. We are seeking artists who would like to be interviewed on video and featured on Cultural Arts social media. This video will provide a short introduction about you and your art work. It will tell your story as an artist in a way that educates the public about what it is you do, your role in the local arts community, and what it has to offer those who are willing to dive in and learn more. 

Submissions will include your basic contact information and samples of your work. Selected artists will be contacted to set up a date and time for your video interview. Artists may be asked to provide supplemental images or video of you at work in your studio. If you already have material of this nature available, you are invited to include it in your submission, but it is not required. This could include time lapse work in progress videos, for example. 

The Show Up for the Arts in Murfreesboro campaign is a fun learning experience designed to connect residents to their local art community. This campaign provides its participants with the tools and information necessary to dive into the local art community and be proud of what their city has to offer, while also socializing and having fun. We want residents to go out and explore their local art scene and spread the word about all it has to offer with pride and enthusiasm.

Participation in the campaign consists of signing up and receiving a passport of arts activities to complete, such as attending an art exhibition or poetry reading. There are different levels of activities to complete. Participants will receive a prize for completing each level. Prizes will include bumper stickers, water bottles, and more. 

By submitting art work of any kind through this form you grant us permission to feature it on our Cultural Arts social media pages including Facebook, Instagram, and other online city resources. You will not be compensated for the featuring of your work. Submitting does not guarantee it will be featured, and we may contact you about using it in other future features. Please ensure that submissions are appropriate for all ages. Any other questions regarding submissions can be sent to: mhamric@murfreesborotn.gov

Ends on February 1, 2018
