Rick, it seems I'm the target for a number of artist calls lately. I don't recall if this is on our blog or not. It may well appeal to a number of our members.

You are invited to apply to the second annual Milwaukee Domes Art Festival, taking place August 19-21 2011 at Mitchell Park, home of Milwaukee’s beloved Domes horticultural conservatory. A cultural extravaganza in a beautiful, Gold Medal Winning, Milwaukee County Park. Artists are invited to apply to jury in 14 different categories including a Plein Air competition. $10,500 in artist prizes will be awarded. The MDAF will have live music performances throughout, and a headlining act to close the festival on Friday and Saturday nights in order to draw as many of the Milwaukee art loving/buying public as possible.
As evidenced by you reading this invitation, our 2011 publicity push has just begun. The festival has pledges for support and promotion from major Milwaukee radio stations and media sources. You will not find another second year art festival with as great of promotion and participation as the Milwaukee Domes Art Festival. Getting into the Domes Art Festi val will never again be this accessible or affordable – just $35 to apply, and a $250 booth fee if you are accepted (plein air painters may apply to enter competition without a booth). Application deadline is April first don’t wait, apply now!
This show is to support the arts while supporting Milwaukee’s Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory Domes. We intend to make the festival one of the best in the country for attending artists via first rate hospitality, generous awards, growing attendance and by demonstrating a deep seated respect for what it takes to be you… An exceptional artist.
