Call to Artists! Government Plaza

The Arts Consortium and the Tulare County General Services Agency have teamed up to display original artwork created by Tulare County artists in Government Plaza (5961 S.

– Digital submissions must be full color and in an 8.5”in x 11”in aspect ratio, of no less than a 300 dpi resolution. Please submit digital files to inbox@artsconsortium.org with the email title: GP-ART. Digital submission deadline is Sunday, June 30th, 2019 at midnight.
