Center Camp Art Walk  

Do you have smaller 3D or 2D art?  This year, at Pex Summer Festival we're trying new things - one of those things is displaying 2D art made by our community. So many of you make incredible art throughout the year that doesn't get displayed at the festival - here's your time to shine.

Note that your art will remain up for the entirety of the festival - upon acceptance we will contact you with specific dates and time for set up and take down of your art. You are responsible for transporting your art unless alternative transportation is requested. 

Want to bring art?   Bring it!

Art is desired in every dimension! Bring your ideas, innovations, unique visions and creativity and help us to explore the depths of who we really are! We are inviting artists, performers, sculptors, musicians, dancers, builders, and creative people of all types!  Any personal and non-risk art pieces are welcome at the event.  We are currently accepting submissions for large scale and high-risk art. If you are not sure if you fit this category, ask!

The artists, innovators and idea manifestors are the backbone of the magic within our community. This event is a co-creative process. It is with your help, heart and honor that we will have all of the essential ingredients to our conglomerate masterpiece. We are thrilled to extend our land, energy and experience to the common thread of positive-minded creators who will participate in all styles. This means YOU! Yes, YOU!

Our art placement team will work with you to place your art and help with any logistical situations. Questions? Email art@pexsummerfestival.com.

We will also list your artwork in the PEX Summer Festival's "What When Where!" Guide.

May 15th is the Deadline for all guide submissions.

Remember that what YOU do helps to create what this year IS!

Pre-event planning:

  • Design projects and costumes so they minimize the use of materials that might turn into micro-trash.
  • Avoid small loose elements like confetti, feathers, etc.
  • Avoid materials that shed or break into pieces, like Astroturf and glass.
  • Plan your construction so you avoid making waste, like cutouts from cardboard, glue drips, leftover wood, sawdust, loose staples or bent nails.
  • Where these materials are unavoidable, take steps to minimize impact, like strengthening fibers with glue, or laminating glass, or enclosing their use area so pieces can’t escape.
