On April 17, 2010 the Birmingham-Jefferson Chapter of the American Red Cross will turn a section of Birmingham’s “Loft District” into an outdoor digital art show featuring digital artists from around the globe! Illuminated art will be projected on screens and buildings along 2nd Avenue North between 22nd and 24th Street. We will accept entries between January 1st and March 15th, 2010. The top thirty pieces will be projected and juried by a panel of judges. We are looking for innovative and visually compelling examples of: digital graphic art, digital animations (less than 2 min.), digital photography, digitally altered photography, and interactive concepts. Digital photographs of fine art will not be accepted this year.
Artwork can be vertical or horizontal format. Strong consideration will be given to pieces using the color red. The top 30 artists will be notified no later than April 1st, 2009. Each artist may submit 2 pieces of art for free. Additional work can be submitted with a $25 entry fee. For examples from last year’s festival visit http://www.paintthetownredbham.info/artwork
