2017 Emerging Artist Program

in collaboration with Western State Colorado University

The Crested Butte Arts Festival produces an annual, nationally recognized festival presenting a broad spectrum of the arts whose proceeds provide for a year round sustainable arts outreach program. The Emerging Artist Program is one branch of the CBAF’s art outreach program. The purpose of the program is to encourage and support up and coming artists through financial and employment opportunities at the CBAF.

This year the Emerging Artist Program will focus on commissioning an artist to create an interactive, contemporary art installation for the weekend of the festival. Artists will submit a Letter of Intent by March 15, 2017.

To apply for this exciting opportunity, please review the LOI Guidelines (Link Below) and email it to: Juliette Eymere
