Ends on September 15, 2017

Presented by Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation and Friends of the Greenway, the annual Greenway Art Festival is held in Old Fort Park along the Murfreesboro Greenway. Large shade trees, Spring Branch Creek, and the extension of the Murfreesboro Greenway System as it connects through the park create a calm and pleasant atmosphere. Food, live music, and children’s activities enhance the festival.

Artist selection will be juried based on subject, overall quality, originality, and presentation. All original fine art is eligible, including but not limited to: jewelry, painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and furniture. All work must be original and created by the artist. No mass-produced, commercially manufactured work, or work manufactured from kits or molds are eligible. Any commercially made embellishments must be subordinate to the handcrafted work. Only media accepted by the selection committee will be permitted in the sales booth. The festival director reserves the right to ask that any inappropriate or ineligible work be removed.

Application forms must be received no later than August 16, 2017 to be included in our Artist Guide. Late entries will be accepted based upon available space and/or judging, but may not be included in the Artist Guide and promotional materials. There is a $5 late registration fee after August 16. Early acceptance notices will be emailed starting June 1, 2017. Final acceptance notices will be e-mailed by September 8, 2017.  Applications postmarked after September 1, 2017 will not be accepted.
