Calling all artists: Donate your creativity to DC SCORES' Inspired Art Gala

DC SCORES would like to announce an open call for artists of all types and experience to participate in our Inspired Art Gala May 19 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

Throughout the school year, DC SCORES students devote countless hours to expressing themselves through creative writing. To commemorate their hard work and thoughtful pieces of prose, Inspired Art will feature pieces of art inspired by their youthful musings.

Artists of every medium are invited to take an original poem from a DC SCORES student and create a piece of art inspired by their words and poetic imagery.

While the vision of Inspired Art is to bring each student’s creative expression to life through the artistic lens of a professional artist, we also welcome donations of existing pieces of art that can be paired with our students’ poems.

All art submissions will be entered into the silent auction at Inspired Art, with 100% of the proceeds going to support the 700 DC youth whom DC SCORES engages annually. Artists will also have the opportunity to attend the Inspired Art Gala, with access to a special artist reception for networking and socializing with other local artists.

Please contact Beth Morrison at bmorrison@americascores.org or 202.393.6999 x312 for more information on getting involved, or visit the event website.
