Go Art! Seeks Sponsors
Power of the Arts is partnering with WRTA to put local artists’ works on the outside of buses. Sponsorship businesses and nonprofits are being sought to sponsor individual designs. The cost of the sponsorship depends on the size of the panel selected by the sponsor. Prices range from $140 for a 21”x59” panel to $3400 for a 8’x8.5’ full wrap. The business or nonprofit logo will be included in the design, and sponsors and artists will be invited to a reception.
A unique aspect of the project is that sponsors may, if they choose to, champion a particular artist, medium or theme. For example, a camera shop might sponsor a work of photography; an ethnic society might seek artists of a particular ethnic heritage; a food-based business might seek a design that incorporates food; a school may sponsor a middle school artist or graduate of that school.
WRTA buses will become a traveling museum, visible throughout our neighborhoods. We hope artists of all ages will be encouraged to continue creating, knowing the arts are valued and appreciated in our community. Sponsorship deadline is November 30. Register here. After all sponsorships are in, POA will put out a call for artists.
Power of the Arts, Lit Youngstown & Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership: Call For Poems
Power of the Arts, Lit Youngstown and Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership seek poems from Trumbull and Mahoning County-affiliated poets. The winning poems will be painted on murals, one each in Warren and Youngstown. The deadline for submissions is December 1.
To qualify, a poet must have an affiliation with the counties, such as being a current resident, or current or former student. There is no length specification, but shorter, more succinct poems (or excerpt of a poem) are preferred. The contest is open to poets of any age. Winning poems must be appropriate for readers of all ages. Poems will be judged blindly, and the winner selected by an outside poet. Only one single poem per poet will be accepted for submission.
The murals will be designed and painted by students of YSU painting professor Dragana Crnjak. Mural sites have not yet been selected. Send submission to LitYoSubmissions@gmail.com. The literary murals will be funded through an IOBY campaign, which will also fund paid internships for students to work at qualifying arts and culture nonprofits.
