Call for Art Using Light

Deadline: August 18

The 2020 Napa Lighted Art Festival invites artists and artist collaborative groups to apply to have an installation featured at the Festival.

For 2020, approximately 15 installations are being sought to receive a stipend between $2,000-$4,500.

Artists interested in submitting a proposal should consider both the audience and the outdoor environment of the festival when proposing a project. Each artwork on the Napa Lighted Art Festival will be open and operational for all festival hours for each of the nine nights.

The spirit of the Napa Lighted Art Festival embodies the following core concepts:

  • Innovative
  • Contemporary
  • Uplifting
  • Inspiring
  • Imaginative

The festival supports innovative techniques using light and light technologies as a growing art medium. Light itself in any form should be the actual artwork and we require that the role of light be essential to your concept. We also strongly encourage new technologies and innovative use of light.

As well as new ideas for artworks, we are open to receiving proposals to exhibit existing works, provided they meet the Festival themes and criteria.

Details and an online application are available here.
