ArtPop Peoria, an annual event hosted by ArtsPartners of Central Illinois that provides local artists the opportunity to display their work for residents, is looking for artists interested in the opportunity.
A panel of experienced local artists and town leaders will select four of the five winning artists. The fifth contestant will be selected by an online People’s Choice Award contest. If selected, the winning artists will have their art displayed on a billboard, along with her or his name.
Winning artists will get $15,000 worth of free advertisement and be displayed at CIAO First Friday at The Studios on Sheridan gallery and on ArtPartners website.
Those interested in entering this third annual event can access the call on the ArtsPartners website at artspartners.net. The website includes rules and regulations for the submitted piece. The entry deadline is Feb. 28.
