Veterans' Art Pavilion
June 2 & 3, 2018
Call for Entry/Application

Attention local and regional veterans:
Applications due by Friday, April 20 at 5pm

For the first time this year, thanks to a generous donation from the Veterans United Foundation, the Columbia Art League is very proud to present the Veterans' Art Pavilion! The pavilion will feature up to 20 artworks by local and regional artists, promoting the excellence of our local veterans.  We believe that creative veterans have unique perspectives and stories to tell, which is why the Veterans' Art Pavilion at Art in the Park will provide a one of a kind opportunity for thousands of art-loving festival goers to appreciate the incredible diversity and talent that our veterans bring to the community.

An artist submitting work must be a United States Veteran living in Missouri. The exhibit will be peer juried, i.e. juried by other veteran artists.

Veterans' work may not be sold at the festival, but artist contact information may appear alongside the work on display in the tent.

Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, as well as a People's Choice Award, decided by popular vote.
