The city also is seeking original work from Olathe photographers.
The 72,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility will provide an opportunity to create a unique and sophisticated art and photography collection unlike any in Olathe or the region.
The purpose of this project is to help promote and showcase world-class works by artists from the metro Kansas City area, and the state of Kansas. The goal is to achieve a great cultural and community-oriented success — one that is inclusive, visionary and stunning, according to a city spokesman. By working with artists from the region, the city will help grow regional culture.
Artists working in all media are welcome to submit. Galleries are also welcome to submit. There are no restrictions regarding size, theme or method. The only restriction is that submitting artists must have participated in at least one juried show, and must have exhibited with at least one gallery.
All art submissions must be postmarked by Sept. 29, 2012.
The intent of the call for photographers is to highlight accomplished Olathe resident photographers. Submissions are due Oct. 20, 2012 and include black-and-white or color photograph based on the photographer preferences. Photographs will be reviewed by the Olathe Community Center Art Committee in association with Leopold Gallery in Kansas City, Mo.
