Calling All Young Emerging Artists

Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park Emerging Artists Program

An Invitation to Houston Area Art Teachers and Students!

The Bayou City Art Festival invites currently enrolled high school students to submit art installation proposals. The 2012 Emerging Artist Program features outdoor, site-specific student work. Selected applicants will display their artwork at the Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park, March 23 – 25, 2012.

The Emerging Artist Program provides promising student artists with an exceptional opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional venue, interact with talented artists, and experience the jury process.

Submission Rules:

All student proposals must be approved and submitted by a teacher.
All applications must be complete with information form, sketch, and proposed budget.
Individual student proposals are encouraged, group proposals of up to five (5) students are allowed.
Proposed installations must withstand inclement weather or have proper covering in case of wind and rain. Please note that installations cannot be attached to park trees or disturb the natural surroundings of the park.
The deadline for proposal submission is Friday, February 10, 2012.

The selected ten (10) installation proposals will receive a $200 stipend for materials and construction costs. The festival judges will judge the Emerging Artists installations on-site and award certificates and prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. First prize: $200 for the artist and $200 for the school. Second prize: $150 for the artist and $150 for the school. Third prize: $100 for the artist and $100 for the school.
