Highlights for Spring 2018!

The Art Crawl continues to thrive with works by artists from eight different districts throughout St. Paul.

Catalog registration and benefits closed on January 21, 2018. However, you can increase your visibility as a Late Registrant by purchasing catalog space in the Art Crawl Catalog!

Last season we introduced a beautifully designed information guide called the “Art Crawl Guide”. The Guide has images of the Poster and Media Winners, as did the postcard it’s replaced, but the larger format lets us also include a list of performance art, registered events, a map of participating locations, and more!

Registration between January 1 and January 21, 2018 included insertion into the Spring 2018 Art Crawl Catalog and online directory. Late registration is offered beyond January 21, but those participants are not listed in the catalog.

The Jury Process

Each season the Saint Paul Art Crawl selects a panel of three Poster and Media Competition Jurors who come from a diverse artistic background and have significant knowledge and experience within the arts and community. Past jurors have included visual artists, performance artists, writers, art collectors, and others selected for their connection to the arts. These Jurors are provided artist submissions through a blind process allowing each to view the image without any information about the artist. The Jurors then select one Poster Winner and nine Media Winners based on judging criteria that includes such points as representing the diverse Saint Paul Art Crawl community of artists, artwork that has a high level of artistic merit, and artwork that creates a strong emotional/aesthetic reaction to the viewer. Having new Jurors each season as well as a strong, objective process allows the the overall tone of the selections to change from season to season, ultimately reflecting a wide array of artistic styles and mediums.
