Art Uplifts

September 1 – October 9

Little Buffalo State Park

October 10 – November 13

Millerstown Area Community Park

Entry Deadline: July 25

Submit your artwork to be featured in our traveling outdoor exhibition that was created to safely engage and lift up our community and artists, during the challenges of the pandemic. The outdoor showings have been so popular, we are continuing them in 2022!

Uplifting artwork centered on themes of inspiration, encouragement, hope, perseverance, etc., will be printed and displayed on durable outdoor yard signs along walking trails in several of our local parks. Artists are asked to also submit written statements, poems or quotes relating to their pieces, which will be printed on the reverse side of the sign along with the artist’s name, medium, town and photo.

The goal is to leave visitors with inspiring and uplifting messages that they can carry with them throughout their day.
