The City of Moscow is proud to announce the call for Artwalk 2020 poster art. Heading toward its 16th year, Moscow Artwalk is an annual celebration of the arts and the Artwalk poster is the visual centerpiece of the event. The selected artist has the option of being featured in a custom video promotion as well as in a June-July 2020 exhibition at the Third Street Gallery inside Moscow City Hall. The City of Moscow also welcomes the original selected artwork into the City’s portable art collection, with a purchase amount not to exceed $600. Applications are due by Wednesday, October 16, 2019 by 5:00 p.m.
Yes, it’s still summer and typically the poster art selection process occurs later in the year, but there are advantages to adjusting this timing. First, the selected artist is allowed more time to develop an exhibition for the Third Street Gallery, if they choose to pursue that option. Secondly, the earlier selection process avoids overlapping with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
Application forms are available to download from the City of Moscow’s website at https://www.ci.moscow.id.us/DocumentCenter/View/18136/2020-Artwalk-Poster-Artist-Application and printed copies can be picked up from the City of Moscow Arts Department inside City Hall.
The mission of the Moscow Arts Commission is to enrich the community by celebrating and cultivating the expression of all art forms and culture.
