Seeking Artists for Pumpkinville

Call to Artists for Pumpkinville 2017!

The Myriad Botanical Gardens is seeking submissions from local artists interested in creating temporary Halloween-themed installations for its sixth annual Pumpkinville Fall Festival in the Children’s Garden. Last year, more than 27,000 visitors enjoyed the fun and festive fall-inspired creations placed throughout the grounds for 17 days. Artists’ work is published in local media outlets as well as social media sites. This year’s theme focuses on Prairie Life and Western Heritage. We’re especially interested in featuring new work by artists.
