DEADLINE TO APPLY:

In any other year, Urban Scrawl would be a two-day charity mural festival held in front of thousands of spectators at 400 West Rich Street in the Franklinton Arts District. Unfortunately, 2020 had other plans... so we're going virtual!
This year, the festival will be one day only, and will be live-streamed on Saturday, August 29th from noon-10 p.m. directly from artists' homes and studios!
Participating artists will be given primed birch or maple plywood panels for the creation of their artwork during the virtual event. Available dimensions are one-quarter of the standard dimensions of an Urban Scrawl panel. This means artists can choose from panels of the following sizes below: 1' x 1' (square), 1' x 2' (vertical or horizontal), and 2' x 2' (two 1x2' panels to form a square, similar to our double panels at traditional Urban Scrawl).
Groups of artists may submit an application if they plan to work on a collaborative piece, but each artist must complete a separate application form and submit separate samples of their individual work in order to be considered.
The Franklinton Arts District values all forms of artistic expression; however, applications containing sexual content, extreme profanity, and hate speech are unlikely to be selected for participation.
Please read carefully.
Please be sure to complete the entire form. Incomplete applications will not be considered. All entries must be received by Saturday, August 8, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Applicants will be notified of acceptance no later than Wednesday, August 12.
Due to limited capacity, we be accepting fewer artists during Virtual Scrawl than a traditional Urban Scrawl event. At present, we anticipate this number to be between 25 and 30 artists versus 50 to 55 artists in a typical year.
For this reason, any artist not initially accepted will be placed on a waiting list and notified in case of cancellations. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.
By applying to Virtual Scrawl, you agree that you have read and will abide by the guidelines outlined above and to the terms and conditions contained in the Virtual Scrawl Artist Application.
Virtual Scrawl and the Franklinton Arts District do not assume responsibility for any personal injury, damage, theft, or loss of property in conjunction with an artist’s participation in this event and will be required to sign a waiver of liability to participate.
Thank you for your interest in Virtual Scrawl!
