Last week, the ever-popular Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival put out the call for art submissions for the 2016 fest. Visual, installation, and performing arts are a huge, huge part of the festival, and artists who submit have a chance to get their work seen by 20,000 or so fans taking in all the sights and sounds of Eaux Claires. The fest has yet to fully announce their slate of visual artists and the various installations scattering the grounds, but with this call of submissions, the fest is opening up the game to more than just carefully curated artists and projects. “If you are a group of fabricators, dancers, actors, architects, designers, artists, students, or all of the above and more, this is your opportunity,” said Michael Brown, the creative director of the festival, in a blog post, adding “Wield your expressive voice wisely.” All proposals have to be submitted to creative@eauxclaires.com by May 6 to be in consideration.
