COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Greater Columbus Arts Council (GCAC), in collaboration with PromoWest Productions, has announced a call for entries for the annual PromoWest Art Exhibition to feature artists, designers and photographers residing in Franklin County.

This annual exhibition, a partnership between PromoWest and GCAC’s Art Makes Columbus/Columbus Make Art effort, celebrates the work of the city’s amazing artists. No other city has this unique collection of creative people. Musicians, painters, sculptors, glass blowers, designers, actors, writers—any creative endeavor that can be thought of is pursued in Columbus. GCAC encourages artists to spotlight that passion for creativity through their submission. Four artists’ work will be selected and digitally produced on 9’x 10’ full color panels.

A review committee of community and Arena District business representatives will select the four artists whose work will be displayed on the south side of A&R Music Bar in the Arena District. The four selected artists will each be paid a $1,000 honorarium by GCAC.

Entrants must be residents of Franklin County. Any artist and/or photographer, or team of artists and/or photographers or designers, is eligible. Only one design per artist/team is allowed, and previous PromoWest concert or venue posters are NOT eligible for submission. Submissions must be the proper orientation and cropped the correct ratio/dimensions or they will be disqualified. Applicants must register and apply online by March 10, 2023 at 5 p.m. at
