Art Uplifts

Submit your artwork to be featured in this special outdoor exhibition designed to safely engage and lift up our community and artists, during the challenges 2020 has brought, and while we limit our on-site exhibition offerings at our indoor locations.

Uplifting artwork centered on the 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. The goal is to take the viewer away from the stress and worry about current life and leave them with inspiring and uplifting messages to carry with them throughout their day. The outdoor exhibition continues online with a longer, immersive digital experience, where viewers can also purchase your art!
