The Superior Chamber of Commerce has announced its plans to open the new office on Main St. in May. The Chamber is inviting local artists to join “The Superior Artists Coalition”; membership in the coalition will allow local artists an affordable way to join the Chamber and possibly have their art work shown in the new chamber office. At this time the chamber is only looking for “family friendly” art that can be hung on the walls in the conference room and lobby, sculptures, jewelry and other forms that cannot be placed on the wall will not be accepted.
“In order to qualify to participate the chamber artist program, the chamber is asking that the artists join as a business under the name THE SUPERIOR ARTIST COALITION, and depending on the amount of artists chosen to participate, the cost of the $100 membership will be divided equally amongst the total amount of artists,” explained Marilee Lasch one of the volunteer artist coordinators. “The amount of space available for each artist will depend on the number of people involved, and everyone will be allocated the same amount of space,” she further explained.
The Chamber will not be selling the art that is displayed in the building, however artists will be allowed to have contact information available so the interested party wishing to purchase art can get in touch with the artist. The Chamber would also like to have a short biography on each artist that is showing art in the building.
If you are interested in displaying your artwork in conjunction with “The Superior Artist Coalition” or would like more information on the membership program for artists, please contact Marilee Lasch at 602-291-0550 or Tommy Macias at 520-827-1983.
