Call for artists: Masterpiece in a Day Musicians

The Fountain Square will host its annual Art Squared event Saturday, September 21st, with activities scheduled in the near-downtown neighborhood from 9am until 7pm. Highlights include over 50 artist vendors gathered into an Art Fair, the annual Masterpiece in a Day competition, and an Art Parade.

To accommodate the welcomed opening of the Red Line IndyGo bus down Virginia Avenue, Art Squared has shifted to Prospect and Shelby Streets and Woodlawn Avenue, just east of Virginia Avenue. Attendees are encouraged to use the Red Line to attend Art Squared to help minimize parking issues. The bus line will be free for the weekend, and also creates easy access to the nearby Hollar on the Hill, just south on Shelby Street in Garfield Park.

Musicians are invited to participate in Masterpiece in a Day, an annual competition that is free to participate. All entries will be judged upon completion, and monetary prizes will be awarded to the top three entries.
