City of Upper Arlington, Ohio

Apply for the Arts Fest


Every year the Upper Arlington Labor Day Arts Festival Jury works hard to bring the best and brightest of festival artists to this premier event. Invited artists represent a variety of fine art and fine craft media including ceramics and drawing to fiber, jewelry, painting, glass, sculpture, photography and wood, meaning the Festival offers something for everyone's artistic palate.

To help clarify the difference between fine art  and fine craft, we have provided the following definitions:

Fine Art:  A visual art considered to have been created primarily for aesthetic purposes and judged for its beauty and meaningfulness, specifically, painting, sculpture, drawing, watercolor, graphics, and architecture.

Fine Craft: Works of art that have a practical as well as an artistic purpose, including ceramics, jewelry, art glass, quilts, furniture, welding, and weavings.

We are currently accepting applications for the 2018 Labor Day Arts Festival.
