Artists invited to help celebrate 30 years of charity work

FARMERSBURG, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – In celebration of 30 years of service to the community, Arts Illiana has issued a call for artists to submit artwork celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Wabash Valley Community Foundation.

The Community Foundation helps individuals, families and businesses create permanent endowments that support charities and opportunities in West Central Indiana, primarily focusing on Clay, Sullivan and Vigo counties.

Over the years, the Community Foundation has distributed over $41 million to the community.

As part of the year-long celebration, the Community Foundation and Arts Illiana are seeking to acquire 2D or 3D artwork originally produced for permanent display in their offices, as well as in digital and print media. . Foundation leaders have said they want to showcase the talent of visual artists living and working in the Wabash Valley.

“Since our earliest years, the Community Foundation has supported the arts and the important role they play in our communities,” said Beth Tevlin, Executive Director of the Wabash Valley Community Foundation. “The local arts sector and the creators it employs not only enhance the quality of life, but also act as a magnet for cultural tourism, attract and retain talent, and contribute to the overall economic vitality of the Wabash Valley. . On the occasion of our 30and Anniversary, we are pleased to extend this opportunity to local artists in Clay, Sullivan and Vigo counties and invite them to share their perceptions of the Community Foundation’s role in the community through visually reflective artwork.

Those wishing to bring their artwork must reside in Clay, Vigo, or Sullivan counties and be at least 18 years of age. Themes requested are submissions that interpret the Community Foundation’s impact on the community. This could include the philanthropy of its donors, the programs or projects of its grantees, changing perceptions within the community, or the mission/vision of the Community Foundation.

The Community Foundation plans to purchase up to six individual pieces for display. Qualification requests can be found on the Arts Illiana home page. Artists will be able to make a site visit at the offices of the Community Foundation. Details of tour days and times are listed in the price request.
