Springville Center for the Arts seeks participants and artwork submissions for the juried Annual Downtown Springville Art Crawl.
The deadline to submit is Saturday, April 13.
This one-night art event places artwork in small businesses along Springville’s East Main Street Historic District where visitors can stroll from location to location during the free event.
In addition to fine artwork, this year’s Crawl is looking for musicians and performers to play interspersed with the artwork, art installation proposals, art demonstrations and fine crafters looking to table in a sales area.
A small “pop-up shop” marketplace will feature small business owners that do not yet have a storefront space. Community organizations interested in setting up a table to promote their activities are also sought.
The Art Crawl takes place on Saturday, May 4 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
To submit artwork, artists are asked to email images of their submissions and an entry form to SCAArtSubmissions@gmail.com.
Five original pieces of any medium may be accepted. There is no restriction on size or age. If accepted by the jury, artists will be notified and work must be delivered ready to display by April 27. A submission form and details are available at Crawl.SpringvilleArts.org
Performers, community organizations and others interested in participating should call the Center at 592-9038 or email SCAArtSubmissions@gmail.com.

Nila Griffis Lampman, Executive Director of The Ashford Hollow Foundation, finds her passion in connecting people to the art, programs and history that can be found both at Griffis Sculpture Park and The Essex Arts Center. One of Lampman’s main goals is to pay homage to the
great history that the organization holds while ensuring its sustainability for years to come.
