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 Michelle Trujillo, Mallery Quetawky,  Rob Rael, Tonio LeFebre, Sean Wells, Amy Baca López,  and Jade Leyva.

Submission Deadline — May 13, 2024

The artist must meet the following criteria for consideration and selection:

  1. Be a resident of New Mexico,

  2. Provide a portfolio with at least two works that reflect New Mexico communities and/or cultures; and

  3. 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?"

  4. Submit a concept drawing of  what you envision the poster art to look like as it relates to the conference theme: Celebrando nuestros orígenes  — Respetando nuestras lenguas, Embrace Our Origins  — Respect Our Languages, Hodeeyaadą́ą́ Nihizaad Nihániilyánígíí Tʼaadii Nihił Niłį́

​Artisans will be considered in both traditional and contemporary styles and medias, including, but not limited to textiles, sculpture, painting, and pottery.

All artists will be judged using the above criteria and will be selected by the DLeNM Board of Directors. Artwork becomes the property of DLeNM and will be used for future fundraisers to benefit the Janet Montoya Schoeppner Memorial Scholarship.
