Calling All Artists

The Smith Center Visual Arts Call for Entries

People of all ages look back at uplifting memories of The Smith Center.

Now, they have a chance to share these memories with The Smith Center community.

To celebrate the joy of creativity in anticipation of its reopening, The Smith Center invites artists, arts enthusiasts and Smith Center fans to create and submit their art for a visual arts contest, with original artworks highlighting their most beloved memories of The Smith Center.

With no entry fee required, individuals ages 6 and up can enter photos of their art pieces from April 6 to May 20, with any visual creative medium welcomed.

The Smith Center will feature the top three artworks from each age category in its lobby, following the center’s reopening. The winners will attend a private reception with Myron Martin, Smith Center president and CEO.

How to Enter

Individuals must submit entries online, by uploading a photo of their artwork and completing the below application form.

The Smith Center’s visual arts call for entries includes the following three age categories:

  • Students ages 6 to 11 (parent permission required)
  • Students ages 12 to 17 (parent permission required)
  • Adults 18 and over

Entries will be judged on the artwork’s success in telling a story inspired by a passion for the arts, and/or celebrating the importance of The Smith Center in the community.

The Smith Center will accept just one entry per individual. An artwork must be an individual piece, not created by a group. Each entry must be an original work by the submitting artist, and may not violate U.S. copyright laws.

Accepted mediums include a pencil or pen and ink sketch, mixed media, a painting, a drawing with markers, pastels or crayons, a 3D collage, a photograph, a sculpture or any other visual art medium.

Judges will include members of The Smith Center Art Committee, and friends of The Smith Center with professional experience in many artistic disciplines.

For any additional questions, community members can contact [email protected].
