As the Duluth Homegrown Music Festival continues to grow, we are excited to expand the festival to include new and unique artistic experiences for Twin Ports audiences to enjoy. Homegrown is happy once again to announce a visual art component to this year’s festival.

This is a serious attempt to show the cities of Duluth and Superior the talent that resides in our community. The emphasis on serious is no laughing matter! We want to see artists that are willing to meet us halfway in the process of displaying their art. This means art that is ready to be hung or displayed in a public setting, Application Form completed, and the capability to carry out the task of putting on a great art show.

Artists will be picked by the Homegrown Arts Committee and will not be chosen based on the potential for profits for the benefit of the artist or the Homegrown Music Festival. The artists chosen have the opportunity to sell or not sell their work during the art shows. Artists will also be expected to aid in the installation if needed, promote the shows and demonstrate a willingness to work with other artists and the community.

* Homegrown and participating venues are not liable for lost, stolen or damaged art. *
