Call for Natural Inspiration Submissions
Photographers, painters, sculptors, and other artists are invited to submit portfolios for the Natural Inspiration "Educational Art Wall" located inside the Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center in the Winn Dixie Plaza on Big Pine Key.
Friends And Volunteers Of Refuges operates a bookstore within the Visitors Center (www.fws.gov/nationalkeydeer/)and wants to complement their educational retail products with a wall of art that mirrors their environmental message. Each of the artists chosen will be awarded a month long exhibit.
Portfolios/proposals will be accompanied by our consignment & entry form (click here.)
For ideas on appropriate subjects, see our list (click here.)
All art must be accompanied with an environmental message by the artist.
Artists that are chosen will design and hang their wall for the month. Available wall space measures by 9’9” to ceiling with 9’5” width. Space devoted to objects with depth (sculpture, etc) is available within reason.
Artists will also be able to sell smaller works alongside the wall. Any “flat art” will be kept in bins and must be kept below 11x22. 8x10’s tend to sell very well. Bin art can be matted or unmatted.
Portfolios and proposals for the exhibit space can be delivered to the Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges visitor center in the Big Pine Key shopping plaza or sent electronically. Please call the visitor center to arrange for portfolio delivery @872-0774. You can also email 3 digital files (please no larger than 1040 dpi) or send your website link of examples to Chad Anderson.
