Brookings Arts Council looking for artists for fundraiser

BROOKINGS, S.D. - The Brookings Arts Council is asking artists to submit a 6"x6" canvas to be a part of the 6 Squared fundraiser. The deadline to submit a canvas is Friday at 5:00 PM. Artists can not frame the artwork and can only sign the back of it so they stay anonymous. They can submit up to four pieces and can be either 2D or 3D. Canvases are available for purchase at the Brookings Arts Council, which is located right across from the Children's Museum of South Dakota.

The canvases will then be used in an art show starting on September 20th. On September 30th, the Arts Council will have a reception to sell the canvases and give the public the chance to tour the newly renovated Brookings Arts Council. Live music, refreshments and face painting will be available on the 30th starting at 4:00 PM.

The art sale of the canvases will start at 5:00 PM. Each canvas will be sold for $20. Thirty raffle tickets will be sold for $5 a piece. Those raffle tickets will give people the opportunity to buy whatever canvas they would like first. It gives them exclusive access essentially.

The money raised at the event will then go back towards the Brookings Arts Council, which provides classes and unique art to the community.
