With regards to 2020 you may recall that we had opted to highlight our graduates due to COVID restrictions. Currently, the Eagle River Revitalization Program is planning to sponsor the annual Artscape Program for 2021 with submitted artwork from our talented artists. We have several pieces that were submitted last year that are ready to be sponsored but there is still time to enter if you have not done so or would like to bring in a new piece of artwork as well.
Banners will once again hang on Wall and Railroad Streets. It is a great opportunity to share your talents with the Eagle River community and its visitors. There is no cost to participate and the artist keeps the original artwork.
Artwork will be digitally photographed and reproduced on 24” x 51” banners. The banners will hang from Memorial Day until Veterans Day. Please consider the following when determining what to submit:
- Any form of artwork that can be digitally reproduced is acceptable. This includes 3-dimensional art.
- Artwork must be vertical (horizontal art can be submitted if it can be cropped).
- Artwork can be any size but will reproduce better if the proportions are 1 to 2, as it will fill the banner.
Artwork must be delivered to the ERRP office on or before March 1, 2021, to qualify, unless alternate arrangements are made. Kitty Sookochoff will be taking the digital photos, so you are guaranteed a professional reproduction. You will be able to pick up your original once it has been photographed.
If your artwork is chosen by one of our sponsors, a recreation of your artwork will be on a banner throughout the summer.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give me a call.
