Artists interested in this opportunity have until Monday, April 20, 2020, by 5 PM EST to submit their work.

To celebrate not only the music but also the visual components of jazz culture, we seek submissions for this year’s Artist Village that showcase jazz or music themes in a visually engaging way.

All visual art mediums are encouraged, including, but not limited to, drawings, paintings, mixed media pieces, photography, sculptures, digitally designed prints, and etc. Each selected artist will be assigned an artist booth to use during the jazz festival at no cost to the artist.
