PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) Organizers of a southeast Kansas art festival are looking for artists from Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas and Oklahoma to participate in a large exhibit planned for downtown Pittsburg.
SEK Art Fest 2012 says the exhibit will run from May to September and have the theme “Mining Memories” to celebrate the region’s mining heritage.
The Joplin Globe reports artists can submit proposals for how they would decorate large fiberglass coal buckets. the designs must answer the question, “What makes southeast Kansas great?”
A panel that includes some local artists will select the designs that will be used in the exhibit. Those whose designs are selected will be paid $500 apiece to finish their work.
Applications and proposals must be submitted to the group by Dec. 7.
