Vista Bank Seeks Artists Columbia SC

The new Vista Bank with offices in Columbia and Aiken is seeking to commission an artist to create 9-10 original works appropriate for placement in the Columbia office and that represent Columbia vistas. Vista Bank offices are at 1219 Assembly Street in Columbia. Interested artists may wish to stop by to see which wall spaces are open for placement.

The Cultural Council will charge a 20% commission to the artist. In addition if the artist wishes the Cultural Council to remit the sales tax, the Council will remit that therefore the artist will pay a 27% commission. Please submit sample images to the Cultural Council no later than February 14th for consideration. The bank jury will meet during the week of February 18 with selection of the finalists by the 22nd and final selection by February 29th. Please note, the bank does not expect the artist to have all works currently in inventory, and indeed, will anticipate the artist will continue to create work through the following weeks.

For application and more details bring your images on a cd to the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties, 930 Richland Street, Columbia SC 29201 Or Call Andy Witt at 803-231-3131 (direct line)
