“Art Uprising” call for artists

Announcing a new art festival at West Village called “Art Uprising” ! The Festival is a three-day event that will include a silent auction hosted by various retail sponsors at West Village, with proceeds to benefit the Emergency Artist Support League (EASL) (Friday Sept 21), and a two days of art and music throughout the West Village Neighborhood.

We are currently accepting applications for artist vendors, who will be set up in 10′ x10′ tents throughout the area. Total cost per vendor for the weekend is $150 — and this is an opportunity to gain exposure to an entirely new audience, for those artists who have participated in other area festivals.

Friday, September 21, 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m. Saturday, September 22, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday, September 23, 11 a.m -5 p.m.

A portion of the proceeds from the auction will benefit Easl (http://www.easl.us/).
