A local nonprofit is seeking artists for works to be installed at the new Children’s Safety Center of Washington County this summer.

Founded in 1997, the Children’s Safety Center aims to bring together professionals who serve child victims, including law enforcement, child protective services, victim service providers, prosecutors, medical personnel, mental health professionals, and community volunteers.

Arts One Presents (formerly Arts Center of the Ozarks) is asking for artwork that evokes childhood whimsy and shares stories of support for child victims.

An online form is now accepting submissions through April 30 (see form here).

The call for art encourages artists of all mediums and crafts to apply and submit works for acquisition or consider submitting previous works to be considered for a commission of new work. The organization will consider the submissions and present them to the center’s stakeholders for final approval.

Artists will be compensated based on a sliding scale that considers the market value of the work, size, scope of work, and budget for the project, according to a news release.
