Call for Artists | City Sounds

Attention: A $500 stipend provided to each artist!

Have you a burning desire to paint a piano? We’ve got 9 to paint! Here’s what you need to know:

1. Artists must apply via this LINK.

2. Applications are due April 10th, 2015. Artists will be announced April 15th, 2015.

3. There is a $500 stipend provided to each artist to cover time and materials. Pianos will be painted at the DSMarts building at 900 Keo Way in downtown Des Moines and need to be completed (and dry) by May 10th, 2015.

4. Concepts will be submitted and reviewed by City Sounds after selection. We encourage your creative freedom but have to review concepts to assure there’s nothing too naughty in the concept as it is going in the public domain.

5. You will need to sign a release for your work and use of your name and image.
