The free, non-traditional, pedestrian-oriented festival celebrates the rich history of Grand Avenue, while encouraging neighborhood sustainability and community creativity.

A festival like this is needs creative imagery to boot, and organizers are now calling for artist submissions for a Grand Avenue 2014 official festival image. The artwork should represent the Historic Grand Avenue District.

All two-dimensional works, including photographs, will be considered. The winning artist will be awarded $150 and work with Grand Avenue's graphic designer to create a final image to be featured in festival posters, guides, and promotional material.

The deadline is Saturday, August 16, at midnight. Send your art submission as a JPEG to
