HAC seeking artists for 2nd year of unique artist-in-studio program

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg Arts Council is hoping local artists will apply for an opportunity to have their work shown for an extended time in downtown Hattiesburg.

The Open Studio on Front program gives artists exclusive access to the organization's studio location in the America Building for seven-week periods.

Six different artists will be selected by a committee to participate beginning Aug. 6.

"We want to see that our artists are circulating, people are purchasing their work, enjoying what they do, finding out about who our artists are in our community," said Rebekah Stark-Johnson, executive director of the Hattiesburg Arts Council.   

The deadline to apply is June 15.
