Call for Artists: CREATE 2016 Featured Artist

The Pittsburgh Technology Council has opened a Call for Artists for the opportunity of Featured Artist for the 2016 CREATE Festival.

Presented in partnership with the Three Rivers Arts Festival and Dollar bank, CREATE will provide the selected artist with a $1500 stipend to create 8 pieces of artwork, to be gifted as the Creator-of-the-Year awards, at the 2016 CREATE Festival.

The artist will also receive special exhibition opportunities at the CREATE Festival, an interview on TechVibe Radio, coverage in TEQ Magazine, and all media promotion of the event.

To submit: send your resume/portfolio and a short description of the concept for the 8 pieces of artwork to Kim Chestney (kchestney@pghtech.org) by February 15, 2016. All work must be able to be completed by May 15, 2016.

For more information: visit last year’s festival site.

And for more opportunities, visit CREATE Pittsburgh.

The CREATE Festival is part of the Pittsburgh Technology Council’s Creative Industries Network, supported by the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, Dollar Bank, FortyX80 and AT&T.
