The call for entries to the 13th Annual Downtown Colorado Springs Art On The Streets is open until March 1, 2011.
Art On The Strrets is a yearlong venue where the works of emerging as well as celebrated artists from across the nation, enliven the Downtown Colorado Springs cityscape and urban experience.
The artworks can be created in any medium and format suitable for outdoor exhibition, where obviously the quality, durability and safety of the piece must be a common denominator.
Entrants may enter two works, with a suggested minimum dimension of 3 feet, vertical or horizontal, and scaled to outdoor spaces, submiting their proposals in one packet (no proposals sent via email) in a Word or .pdf document with JPEG images burned to a CD or DVD.
There's a non-refundable entry fee of $25.
Selected artists, will be granted $400 for installation assistance and one night complementary lodging for attendance at opening reception on June 24, 2011.
Three prizes of $15,000, $7,500 and $2,500 each, will also be awarded and artists will have photos of their artwork and biographies included in a brochure.
The artwork will be exhibited until May 2012 throughout the 40-square-block downtown district, with the majority of pieces clustered in the busiest 10 to 15 block core.
Complete guidelines to participate in the 13th AOTS can be consulted on this page.
