Hi everyone - just received this inquiry from the director of a small museum
here in town - I know this is a potentially hair-raising subject with
artists, but it looks like a good opportunity to educate one not in the art
field. I told her I'd field the question and get back to her - any
> I am working with our POW WOW Steering Committee for the '99 POW WOW. One
> of the questions that came up was how do we go about soliciting artwork that
> we could use for a poster for the event. Cindy, how
> do artists usually respond to such a solicitation. Is there a cash award
> for the winner?
> We would like to use it as a signature piece for the POW WOW. Making
> posters to sell, sending the poster throughout the U.S. to encourage the
> Native Americans from around the country to come and participate in the
> dance competition, as vendors of art and food, etc.
> I am a novice, new to this type of promotion. Any suggestions or advice
> would be greatly appreciated.
