ADD YOUR SPARK TO 2ND FRIDAY ART WALK!
For Businesses OR OrganizationS:
We are happy to have any business or organization within the footprint of 2nd Friday Norman Art Walk participate. It doesn’t cost a penny to have your event listed in our 2nd Friday promo materials. To have your featured artist, concert, performance or other arts event listed in our listing, guide and poster, please email Cher Duncan at firstname.lastname@example.org with all the pertinent information and a high-res image if available. To request to be added to our monthly 2nd Friday Norman Art Walk Submission Call and Reminder, please email email@example.com. Participating in 2nd Friday Norman Art Walks and being listed in any and all marketing materials is totally free. We ask that to be listed, events be free, arts-related and open to the public … and preferably awesome (we’re sure it’s awesome!).
Get your work seen by thousands of 2nd Friday patrons! There are two ways of doing this. 1). Coordinate with a local shop/gallery/studio to feature your work on their walls. Almost all 2nd Friday participating businesses are on the look out for new talent to feature in their location, and we ask that you contact the business that you feel is the best match with your work directly (2nd Friday doesn’t book artists for venues but rather markets the collective efforts from individual businesses as a whole). 2). You can set up in our designated vendor area, which you can read more about below:
For OUTDOOR Vendors/ARTISTS:
Join us at the new Arts Vendor Area! Located near The Depot, the closed-to-traffic Jones Street and the nearby Legacy Trail area will be available to vendors who are classified as an artist, artisan or local maker on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is a vendor fee of $30 due with the submission of the Vendor Application, and applications are due by the first Friday of the month prior to 2nd Friday. Those who miss the deadline can submit a Late Vendor Application for $100.
NAC must approve of all vendors, and those not meeting the criteria of being a local artist/maker will not be approved, and 70% of what is sold must be handmade. NAC reserves the right to refuse any Vendor Application.
Vendors are not permitted to setup outside of the designated vendor area.
2nd Friday Norman Art Walk is a rain-or-shine event, and vendor fee are only refundable in the event that Art Walk is cancelled by the threat of severe weather.
For STREET Performers:
Add to the festivities and entertain the art walk crowds! Street performers are permitted to set up on Main Street sidewalks at limited locations with completion of the Street Performer Application. All performers must apply for a permit through NAC, who will assign locations (location preference may be requested, and brick & mortar businesses may coordinate with NAC to facilitate performances outside their businesses) and reserves the right to refuse any application.
For Food Trucks:
Please contact TOLY Food Truck Park at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving food at a 2nd Friday Norman Art Walk!
