GRANTS PASS – The City of Grants Pass Committee on Public Art is accepting applications from vendors to participate in the return of Art Along The Rogue to be held Oct.1-3. The Art Along The Rogue subcommittee will select vendors based upon variety and suitability of products to the venue and available vendor space. Vendor booth space is $80 for the event. Some vendor spaces may have power available for an additional $20 charge.
Vendor applications are available online at: https://travelgrantspass.com/vendor-application/
Vendors must include information and images of the products they wish to sell. The committee is committed to selecting vendors who will not replicate products sold by other vendors.
In addition to street painting and chalk artists, event organizers are seeking artists in a variety of other art mediums, including oil and watercolor artists, sculptors, potters, jewelry makers, mixed media artists, musicians and more to demonstrate their art making during the event and work in conjunction with planned interactive art activities designed to introduce young people to various art forms.
Artist vendors will be given priority where possible. Local nonprofit organizations will also be given priority and nonprofit organizations wishing to host an interactive booth can have their vendor space fees waived by the committee.
“The goal of the committee is to open up the event to artists of all types while exposing young people to the artistic process of the artists and providing hands-on activities for young people to experience their own art-making,” said Information Coordinator Steven Sabel.
Sabel is the city staff member serving as liaison to the Art Along The Rogue planning committee. For additional information, contact Sabel at (541)450-6011.
