SEDSO's Place Your Art Here - Famous Musician Exhibition - Call for Entries + Opening Reception

Place Your Are Here is a series of exhibitions created by SEDSO DESIGN. Each exhibition starts with an open call for entries, but every show has a different set of guidelines that the artist must follow to be admitted into the final show.
Submissions for our current show, Famous Musician, must focus on ONE of the musicians listed below and fit within an 8.5 x 11in vertical format. All entries must be black & white. Select entries will be included in the design of a permanent vinyl wrap that will cover the entire bar top at the Walnut Room, a discreet hotspot in Center City Philadelphia.

This selection of musicians was chosen because their music is often played at the Walnut Room. If there is another musician you think might be appropriate, contact us and we'll consider letting you add them.

Entries may incorporate, but are not limited to, elements of illustration, screen printing, graphic design, water color, painting, etc., but all entries must be submitted digitally as a 300dpi, black & white JPG, TIF, EPS, AI or PDF. Original materials used to create the piece can be any kind of paint, marker, pen, pencil, ink, crayon, pastel, charcoal, etc., but keep in mind that pieces that aren't created digitally must be scanned so keeping the artwork fairly two-dimensional is preferable.
