This page serves as the online portal for 2nd Friday ArtAbout Venue and Artist sign-ups. Please be sure to read “ArtAbout Policy” before signing up.
IMPORTANT: Due to a rapidly expanding program and limited DDBA funding and staff time, it is vital that all participating ArtAbout venues adhere to the deadlines outlined below for the 2017 2nd Friday ArtAbouts. DDBA strongly encourages each venue to do their best to find a featured ArtAbout artist for their venue before asking the ArtAbout Coordinator to make a match.
If you do request that the ArtAbout Coordinator send artist suggestions, you must notify the ArtAbout Coordinator the first day of the month prior. All PR Info is due the third Friday of the month prior. It is always better to send in everything earlier than later.
Note: The ArtAbout Coordinator can only suggest a maximum number of three possible artists for each venue per month. The ArtAbout Coordinator will help each new venue for two months. After that if there is enough time, business-to-artist matches will be handled by the ArtAbout Coordinator on a first-come, first-serve basis, not to exceed a total of three non-new business-to-artist matches per month. Each business is responsible for contacting their own artists to ensure no third party communication errors as well as to build relationships with artists for the future. The ArtAbout Coordinator would be happy to talk with each venue to work out logistics and forms to get started during this transition. The ArtAbout Coordinator can also send out a Call for Artists to the artist list to help find artists for a venue.
