Call for Artists
Throughout the year, we provide various ways for talented visual and performing artists in the Frederick community to participate in various artistic opportunities.
ART IN THE PARK 2O13 – JERSEY DESIGN CONTEST
The Frederick Arts Council (FAC) is sponsoring the 7th annual Art in the Park night at Harry Grove Stadium. On Friday, August 23, 2013 we will be helping the Frederick Keys celebrate 25 years in Frederick at the Frederick Keys “Tim Kurkjian Bobblehead Night” home game with fireworks. Tim Kurkjian is a Major League Baseball analyst on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight and SportsCenter. This annual event is a unique fusion of sports and the arts. Creative activities are planned to promote and celebrate the visual and performing arts concluding with fireworks. The Frederick Keys team and Keyote will be wearing a one-of-a-kind jersey for the evening designed by a local artist. This event presents a unique partnership between the Frederick Arts Council and the Frederick Keys as they seek original jersey designs. This year is the 5th opportunity to have an artist-designed jersey. Previously selected designs include Bridget Von Briel’s “Rubber Duck-Key” themed jersey, Bev Reidinger’s “Star Spangled Banner” jersey, Ron Roos’ “Fireworks” jersey, Samantha Baker’s “Bumble Key” jersey and Jill Jacobs Carswell’s “Summer Splash” jersey.
Any individual can submit a design (s) for the jersey. The selected design will be reproduced by the Frederick Keys. Preference will be given to artists living or working in Frederick County. However, all artists will be considered. Priority will also be given to affiliate members of the Frederick Arts Council. Artists can submit up to three designs for the jersey. Artists must submit their design based on the attached jersey template. Submissions will be judged on creativity, ability for reproduction, and connectivity to the theme of the Keys and the arts. Representatives from the FAC, Frederick Keys, and the jersey production company will select the successful design.
