Call for Visual Artists for the Digital Art Collection

If you are a visual artist, we'd like to support your creations by purchasing usage rights to digital art for use in the promotion of our events, announcements, and general communications. Our digital art collection is an ongoing endeavor to collect and exhibit art which mirrors our values and organizational mission; note that the primary purpose of this call is to purchase rights to existing works, not to commission new art. NOTE: WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING NEW SUBMISSIONS AT THIS TIME.
