January 7, 2019 (Moscow, Idaho) — The City of Moscow Arts Department and the Moscow Arts Commission are seeking submissions for the Artwalk 2019 cover art.
Artwalk celebrates the work of a local artist on the cover of each event’s brochure. Artists may submit up to 2 images of work to be considered for the cover art. All submissions must be new work created in the last two years that has not been shown in an art gallery, previous Moscow Artwalks, or other settings. The selected artist will be awarded $500 for purchase of the art piece.
The deadline for submissions is Thursday, January 31, 2019 by 5:00 p.m.
- Submissions for consideration should demonstrate work that has a graphic quality; the ability to “read” from a distance and hold interest up close.
- Submissions should be varied from recent Artwalk covers (within the last 2 years). The intent of the annual selection is to provide a wide variety of style, media, and subject matter that reflects the diversity of the Artwalk event.

- Keep in mind that the audience for Artwalk is broad-based and of all ages and that Artwalk is a summer event.
- Holds quality through reproduction. Keep in mind that the brochure is printed on newsprint.
The selection committee reserves the option to either select a submitted work or commission a new work of art from the selected artist.
The original work will become the property of the City of Moscow’s Art Collection. A photograph of the original work will appear on the Artwalk brochure, Artwalk poster, City of Moscow’s Facebook page, City of Moscow’s website, in newspaper advertisements, and other publications.
