ArtSpan is holding an open call for Artwork submissions inspired by San Francisco’s citizens, icons, history, and love of art. The winning Artwork will be used for the 2012 SF Open Studios Campaign, including cover Artwork for the Guide (a full-color, 144-page catalog with 20,000 print run), as well as promotional advertising in various publications, outdoor advertising, print and online broadcasts, and other promotional vehicles.
SF Open Studios is a salute to the artists that make up the cultural wealth of our city and give us credence as one of the most creative places in the world. The thirty-seven year old city-wide art celebration includes over 800 artists who open their studios each October. Each weekend, participating artists in their designated portion of San Francisco welcome the public into their homes and workspaces to share their Artwork and engage in dialogue. The SF Open Studios Guide is the travel companion for each weekend of the event, featuring Artwork examples from each artist, maps, and articles.
