Call to Artists
Tempe frequently offers opportunities for visual artists to apply for city public art commissions and Tempe Center for the Arts and Community Galleries' exhibitions. These projects are open to artists nationally or locally, depending on budget and the amount of community contact that needs to take place.
Join the Call to Artists electronic mailing list for updates or bookmark this page.
Other valuable opportunities exist for artists working in the field. The Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF) developed Artists Register, a resource for artists to post their pertinent information and images on the web. Public art programs, private individuals and businesses utilize this site to find and learn more about artists. This resource is offered to artists at a reduced fee due to a consortium of Arizona cities and the Arizona Commission on the Arts supporting the website.
