Let Them Eat Art (LTEA) is Maplewood's whimsical tribute to Bastille Day. The event features live art demonstrations by regional artists, live music, and food & drink by Maplewood's award-winning food purveyors.
Let Them Eat Art is not an art fair; it's a celebration of making art and enjoying art in the shops and on the streets of Historic Downtown Maplewood.
The selection process is based on a few criteria; fresh and innovated work, an eclectic mix of mediums, and the artist proposed demonstration.
The demonstration aspect of the event is very important. All artists participating in Let Them Eat Art agree to prepare and participate in a live demonstration of their work and/or complete a work of art during the event. No matter your medium there is a way to demonstrate your work. GET CREATIVE!
In exchange for providing the demonstration, Let Them Eat Art offers the opportunity for artists to show and sell their work for a nominal fee. The demonstration is meant to be ongoing and interactive through the event and takes place within your allotted exhibition space.
Artists will be notified of their participation no later than March 1, 2022. All decisions are final Fee: $30 participation fee payable upon acceptance.
Date: Friday, July 8, 2022
Time: 6 PM – 10 PM
