Artwork Entry Form (for non-grant applications)
Open February 26 – Closed

Want to Bring Art? Bring it!

The artists, innovators and idea manifestors are the backbone of the magic within our community. This event is a co-creative process. It is with your help, heart and honor that we will have all of the essential ingredients of our conglomerate masterpiece. We are thrilled to extend our land, energy and experience to the common thread of positive-minded creators who will participate in all styles. This means YOU! Yes, YOU!

Art is desired in every dimension! Bring your ideas, innovations, unique visions and creativity and help us to explore the depths of who we really are! We are inviting artists, performers, sculptors, musicians, dancers, builders, and creative people of all types!  Any personal and non-risk art pieces are welcome at the event.

We are currently accepting applications for:

Center Camp Live Painters

Center Camp 2D and 3D Art

Large Scale Art

If you are not sure if you fit these categories, ask! To apply, fill out the Artwork Entry Form (link below).  Artwork Entry deadline is May 15th.

Please note that the Artwork Entry Form is NOT for Art Grant Applications. If you would like to apply for a PEX Summer Festival Art Grant, please complete the Art Grants Application by April 1st. The Artwork Entry Form is NOT required for you to bring your art unless it is large scale art, art with flame effects, or to exhibit and live paint in Center Camp.  

We will list your artwork in the PEX Summer Festival’s “What Where When!” Guide. May 1st is the Deadline for all wWw guide submissions.

Please note that your art will remain up for the entirety of the festival – upon acceptance we will contact you with specific dates and time for set up and take down of your art. You are responsible for transporting your art unless alternative transportation is requested.

 

Remember that what YOU do helps to create what this year IS!

Pre-event planning:

  • Design projects and costumes so they minimize the use of materials that might turn into micro-trash.
  • Avoid small loose elements like confetti, feathers, etc.
  • Avoid materials that shed or break into pieces, like Astroturf and glass.
  • Plan your construction so you avoid making waste, like cutouts from cardboard, glue drips, leftover wood, sawdust, loose staples or bent nails.
  • Where these materials are unavoidable, take steps to minimize impact, like strengthening fibers with glue, or laminating glass, or enclosing their use area so pieces can’t escape.

 

Our art placement team will work with you to place your art and help with any logistical situations.
