Art Tour at the Gaylord Texan – call for artists

Gaylord Texan is proud to present our 2018 Atrium Art Tour, which will showcase local and regional artists as a part of our annual SummerFest extravaganza. As many as 15 artists will be given the opportunity to display their work and their contact information in our sprawling indoor atrium between Memorial Day and Labor Day, where they will be seen by more than 300,000 guests!

All pieces submitted for consideration must work in conjunction with our SummerFest theme– THE SMURFS! Please note that no Smurfs characters or imagery should appear in any way your piece(s). Rather, the chosen pieces should look as though they would belong in the Smurfs Village and the surrounding forest. Think of words like: enchanted, mystical, magical, woodland, fairytale, fantasy, etc. No pieces depicting actual Smurfs characters will be considered.
In addition to maximum exposure of their art, selected participants will also receive a complimentary one-night stay and dinner for two at the resort. If interested please email texanticketing@gaylordhotels.com for an application.

Update: as of April 20, entries are closed.

Deep in the HeART of Texas Art Tour: Gaylord Texan call for artists


My name is Davi Hecht and I am a Special Events Coordinator at Gaylord Texan Resort and Hotel in Grapevine, TX. I’m reaching out to you today in regard to our yearly summer events we host at the property.  This year we will again be featuring an Atrium Art Walk throughout our resort.  This Art Walk will feature works of art from local and regional Texas artists.  We would like to include works that are loosely based on or could work in conjunction with our summer theme of Texas/Americana. Gaylord Texan is calling this event “Deep in the HeART of Texas Art Tour” We will showcase up to 20 artists in our resort with these pieces being on display from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.  Each display will include a bio, photo, and contact information for the artist.  We expect 300,000 visitors over the course of the summer so each piece of art will receive great exposure in addition to adding value to our beautiful property.

In appreciation for participating, each artist will receive a complimentary one night stay as well as dinner for two at the resort.  This will allow each artist to experience our summer festivities and accompanying Art Walk as our guest.
