Call for Entry...Independent of MCS but sharing info

Call for Entries

For anybody who wants to contribute to the book with their own statement on the importance of art, or where art is hiding that the normal non-artist doesn’t see, or statistics about how much money is spent in any art-related field, whatever you want really, that cites the importance and everywhere-ness of the art we live and breath, now’s your chance to voice your love of art!

YOU don’t even have to be an artist, maybe you just know one (married one, birthed one or just appreciate their hard work, etc) And the statement can be about any kind of art as well: theater, dance, music, visual, the written word, movies, you name it, just:

• write down/doodle/illustrate/digitally design the sentiment / fact / statistic
• in a 9”x7” LANDSCAPE format
• in whatever medium you’d like
• mail it (to 4041 Powelton Ave, Apt A1, Philadelphia, PA 19104) or scan it to me sized at atleast 300dpi, or email at
• include your name, state and profession/website with your statement

After I collect all those who want to participate, I will make a book out of them using

The drawing could take you 5 minutes or 5 days, I don’t care, it’s mostly the statements that I’m focusing in on. But most of us being artistically-swayed, a little flare would be appreciated.


March 12th is the deadline for folks who would like to have their statement/image in an abridged version of the book that I am going to take to Arts Advocacy Day with me, which will be left with my PA representatives, so its mainly for PA artists/art appreciators, but all are welcome.

May 15th is the ultimate deadline.

Email all images and/or questions to
