Visual Artist Applications
Artists that are interested may apply via the online application tool (orvisit the CAF site) and submit four digital images of their work, along with one image of their booth display. A jury panel, selected by the CAF Coordinating Committee, conducts a blind jury process, so no biographical information about the artists will be present. Thus, Ohio artists, make sure your works stand out! The artists with the top scores are invited to participate in the Columbus Arts Festival!
