AUBURN — L/A Arts and the City of Auburn invite local artists to submit work for the public art project designed to enhance the Main Street Auburn Wall.

Two-dimensional work in any medium will be considered.

Work submitted should fit the broad theme: “Androscoggin: Our Living River.”

Selected works will be reproduced on panels attached to the masonry wall adjacent to the sidewalk. There will be nine painted aluminum framed sections for the images: nine 4- by 24-foot sections (divided into smaller sections) and five 4- by 4-foot sections.

Artwork will be reproduced as vinyl images with a clear vinyl overlay.

Only digital submissions will be accepted. Artists should not send original artwork. Up to five images may be submitted. Original artwork must be able to be captured as a digital image.

The submission fee of $20 (made payable to L/A Arts) must be received by 3 p.m. on March 1. This is not a postmark date; late applications will not be considered. L/A Arts’ mailing address is 221 Lisbon Street, Lewiston, Maine 04240.

The selection panel will include an elected Auburn official, a layperson, an art educator, a gallery curator or director, an L/A Arts staff member and Auburn’s Community Development director.

Selected artwork will be announced in April. Guidelines and related information may be found online at www.laarts.org (click on Auburn Art Wall Project) or contact L/A Arts at 782-7228.
