Festival of the Arts Call for Adult Collaborative Artists

Published on

The Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation (MKAF) is now accepting applications for the Adult Collaborative Art Exhibit component of the 23rd Annual Festival of the Arts Oct. 27 and 28 at the Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village in Destin.


One of the unique features of the festival is the Collaborative Art Exhibit, which showcases the work of seasoned and emerging adult artists and local student artists competing for the $650 McIlroy Awards given in honor of the late Patricia McIlroy, Destin’s original First Lady and an MKAF advocate and patron.


Artwork should be of an artistic caliber associated with a juried fine art show. Artists in the Adult Collaborative Exhibit can display and/or sell up to three pieces of artwork.


The competition is open to the first 25 eligible applicants. The entry fee is $30 per person for up to three pieces of art.  Application deadline is Friday, Sept. 16. To receive an application, contact Deb Nissley at the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation at or 850-650-2226.
