Create Art. Make Money.

May 19, 2010

Let’s be honest with ourselves: We love creating beautiful, thought-provoking art… But at some point, we really need to think about how this art can make us money. We have a personal fiduciary responsibility. Well, I wanna help you out just a little bit. I’ve come across a few paid art commissions recently and would feel selfish to not share them with you all 🙂 Check ’em out after the break!

Santa Clarita Art Stop Project

The City of Santa Clarita Arts and Events Office (AEO) and the Santa Clarita Arts Commission seek to commission ten (10) artworks for the Art Stop Project. In the month of September, the chosen artworks will be featured in ten (10) transit bus shelters throughout the City of Santa Clarita. The ten (10) chosen artworks will be included in the advertising efforts of the Santa Clarita Festival of the Arts, held on October 2 and 3, 2010, in Old Town Newhall.

Cha-ching factor: $200 + local street exposure


Fall Seasons Magazine Cover

The City of Santa Clarita is developing the Fall SEASONS Magazine, and we would like a photograph from one of you to be on the cover.  The photo must be color.  The theme of the photograph should be Family. Please submit 2 images for consideration by May 31.  The photographs can be past work or new pieces.

Cha-ching factor: $500 + great magazine circulation exposure


Artists Wanted :: EXPOSURE

Photography is power. In a world of images, every person with a camera has the potential to define the world around us.  Great photographers capture moments that speak beyond the frame.  Exposure is an international open call for inspired photography.  This opportunity is open to photographers of all backgrounds who are able to speak exquisitely in the language of lenses and aperture. This is your moment to be discovered.

Cha-ching factor: $10,000 + ridonk international exposure


So, I know it’s not all about the money. But sometimes it is. Don’t be an elitist. Check those links, do the work, and cash in.
