Call for Artists - Public Art Contest

Attention all artists: There is still time to enter the Star of Texas Public Art Project.

The Arlington Museum of Art (AMA), along with the Arlington Tomorrow Foundation (ATF) and Women Inspiring Philanthropy (WIP) are currently working on the public art project, The Star of Texas.

The exhibit will include 20 fabricated fiberglass stars positioned throughout Arlington's Cultural Arts District, Downtown and
Entertainment District. The sculptures will be individual pieces of art, celebrating the city's new brand, Arlington: The American Dream City. Artists will be invited to submit their interpretation of how they will paint the sculptures to reflect the American Dream in Arlington. A selection committee made up of community members will pick the final twenty artists to participate in the exhibit.

This is an exciting way to have your artwork put on display for the public to see, and to be a part of project to further the arts and culture in the City of Arlington and the Great State of Texas. The final deadline is June 30, 2015. Complete details including how to enter can be found here.
