THIS CALL HAS CLOSED.
The Wake Forest Public Art Commission (PAC) invites Wake Forest Guild of Artist members, 9-12 grade students living in Wake Forest, and artists residing within the Town of Wake Forest and it's ETJ (extraterritorial jurisdiction) to submit one to three pieces of original art to the Spotlight on Wake Forest Artists Contest. There is no entry fee.
Each of the selected artists will receive an honorarium of $100.00 and will have their art on display for two years.
The art piece may be oriented either in landscape or portrait style. There are no restrictions on the type or theme of the art except that it must also fit within the societal boundaries of good taste. It must be a piece of art that can be faithfully reproduced digitally. Images of two-dimensional or mixed media art or photographs of pottery, woodwork, jewelry and other art mediums are accepted.

All artists entering the contest will keep their original artwork.
The Town of Wake Forest Public Art Commission develops and implements public art programs to increase public access to the arts, provides opportunities for artists to display their work, and promotes public understanding and awareness of the arts. The Commission was established in 2010. It consists of 9 community member-volunteers appointed by the Town Board of Commissioners. The Town’s Percent for Art Program, established by a 2010 Ordinance, allocates one percent of selected capital improvement projects for the creation and maintenance of works of public art. Funding for the Percent for Art projects comes from each project’s construction budget.
