Call for Poster Artist
The La Cosecha Conference Planning Committee is now accepting submissions to be considered for this year’s conference poster art. The Conference Planning Committee and the DLeNM Board of Directors have worked closely with regional artists to create a visual that represents the theme for this professional conference and community celebration. La Cosecha posters have historically provided each participant a beautiful collector’s item/recuerdo for their participation.
Past conference artists have included Arturo Cisneros, Gary Sánchez, Gary Waya’ia Keene, Brandon Maldonado, Paul Sánchez, Nanibah Chacón, Rebecca Roybal, Arlene Cisneros-Sena, Richard Gutierrez, Amy Stein, Michael Toya, Jeri Desrochers, Sean Wells, Amy Baca López, and Jade Leyva.
The artist must meet the following criteria for consideration and selection:
Be a resident of New Mexico;
Provide a portfolio w/at least two works that reflect New Mexico communities and/or cultures; and
Submit a letter of interest/intent in response to the question: “Why do you wish to have your work represent La Cosecha as conference poster art?" And a concept drawing of what you envision the poster art to look like as it relates to the conference theme Community Directed Transformation – The Strengthening and Expansion of DL Education.
All artists will be judged using the above criteria and will be selected by the DLeNM Board of Directors and the Conference Planning Committee.
Submit a brief bio with a portfolio with at least 2, but no more than 3 examples, of your art
by mail (see address below) or electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
