Columbia Heights Farmers Art Market

Columbia Heights Farmers Market Logo

Title of Artist Call: Columbia Heights Farmers Art Market
Organization: Columbia Heights Farmers Market

Call Summary:
DC artists are invited to submit their small-scale and affordable artwork to be featured and sold at the Columbia Heights Farmers Art Market this spring!

We hope to make the farmers market a more interdisciplinary place, combining our love for art, food, and environmental sustainability. Artists who don’t normally get a chance to exhibit and sell their work will have the opportunity to show their work in a casual and friendly community environment.

It is absolutely free to submit your work and have it put up at the exhibition and you keep what you want your work sold for! At the market, we will mark up your piece to the next nearest 0 or 5 to be donated to the Columbia Heights Farmers Market Bonus Bucks Program. We’ll be piloting our pop-up art exhibitions starting on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 running for three Saturdays until May 6th. The art market will be open 9-1 along with the regular farmers market. It is located at 1400 Park Rd NW, Washington DC, 20010.

This project is made possible by Eagle Endowment at American University and the Columbia Heights Farmers Market run by Community Foodworks.
