2024 NoBo Member Show Call for Artists


All NoBo artist members are invited to participate in the 2024 NoBo Art District Member show!

This exhibit will run from April 5-28th at the NoBo Bus Stop Gallery with an opening reception on First Friday April 5th which is also the kick off for Boulder Arts Week. We anticipate a great turn out for this annual exhibition!

Submissions are open now and close Monday, March 4th at midnight. This exhibit is non-juried and submissions are accepted on a first come basis. (Don’t delay as we may not be able to accommodate all submission requests, we are capped at 100 pieces.) Collaborative and individual works are welcome and both visual and performance artists are encouraged to apply. There is no submission fee to participate and all participants are expected to contribute by promoting the exhibit through their media channels, providing food and beverage for receptions, helping with art drop-off and pick-up, and more as needed.

We also have scheduled a spoken word performance on Saturday, April 6th and a live podcast recording of The Boulder Artist on Sunday, April 7th. Additional performances and artist activations will be scheduled throughout the month with artists who submit to do so. (See performance artist submission form)
