Sanford Art Walk Season
The Historic Sanford Welcome Center invites you to the Sanford Art Walk, a juried art show in the Historic Sanford Welcome Center (230 East First Street, Sanford, FL 32771), and a walking tour of the art venues located in historic downtown Sanford. The event takes place from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM on the fourth Friday of each month. The event at the Welcome Center will include live music, light refreshments and lots of ART!
The juried exhibit will hang in the Welcome Center for the month following the event, until setup for the next month’s event begins. During the hanging, the artwork may be sold through the Welcome Center. A 10% commission is charged if the work is sold during the evening of the event, and a 35% commission is charged for sales during the hanging after the event.
The event will feature two awards:
“Best in Show”
This award is chosen by a panel of two or three judges prior to the event, and is awarded a $150 prize.
This award is chosen by attendees at the event, via a secret ballot, to be awarded a $50 prize.
