The Sioux City Art Center's ArtSplash cordially invites you to apply to be one of up to 100 exhibitors at our 2012 festival of the arts. ArtSplash enjoys an attendance of 35,000 visitors in the beautiful Grandview Park, home of the historic bandshell!  A celebration of the visual and performing arts, the three-day event gives patrons the unique opportunity to meet and purchase art from exhibiting artists. Our goal is to provide the tri-state area with a family-centered arts adventure of exceptional quality. Proceeds from ArtSplash help the Art Center Association of Sioux City fund education and exhibition programs at the Sioux City Art Center.

Grandview Park is easily accessed by traveling straight north through town from the main Interstate 29 exit servicing the downtown business district. City busses run to the Park during the festival.

Artist hospitality includes artist dinner party on Friday evening at the Sioux City Art Center, complimentary snacks and refreshments throughout the weekend, booth sitters, and volunteer help with load in and load out.  Overnight security is provided Friday and Saturday night.  

Application deadline: April 30, 2012
