CALL FOR ARTISTS

AIGA SAINT LOUIS is excited to announce DISCOVERED: An Art Party with a Cause, an evening of art and live entertainment benefiting the St. Louis Public Library Foundation. With the theme of children's literacy in mind, 40 selected artists and designers will exhibit and auction their donated artwork reinterpreting and repurposing used books, to benefit the St. Louis Public Library Foundation. You could be one of these artists! Become a part of the curated show: All art pieces will include a reused book somehow (we will provide one if you like), and they must EITHER easily hang on a nail on a wall OR fit comfortably on a small pedestal. Artists will be responsible for delivering it in early September. Other than that: Get creative! Interested? Send contact information and samples or links of your work to [email protected]

Selected artists will be invited to a SPECIAL PRIVATE

We are privileged to announce our judges, who will curate the artist selection.
