The San Francisco 49ers are still in the construction process of their new Santa Clara stadium, but as that progresses, they are looking ahead to the eventual opening of the stadium. Aside from the process of selling season tickets, one of the things they are working on is developing the decor within the stadium. This includes compiling an art, graphics and photograph collection for stadium.
As part of this process, the 49ers have partnered with a firm called "Sports & The Arts" to source and acquire this work. Sports & The Arts is currently seeking submissions from artists who are interested in being considered for the collection. Interested parties may submit a short bio, sample images of artistic style and any other relevant information in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon selection, artists will be commissioned for specific works commencing in May 2013.
Mediums for Submission:
Paintings: oils, acrylic, watercolor and mixed media
Sketches/Drawings: pen and ink, charcoal and pastels
Mixed Media: found objects, digital, assemblage and collage
November 1, 2012: artist submissions open
January 15, 2013: deadline for submissions due
April 2013: artists will be notified of acceptance
