by | Feb 21, 2018 | Community

Arts for Santa Clarita is a new organization, recently formed by local arts leaders to unite our arts community and provide stronger support for the arts in Santa Clarita. Its founders saw a need for the stronger voice that would result from the coordination and alliance of our many non-profit arts organizations, artists and art lovers. This new organization will serve as a hub that brings our local arts community together. It will advocate for more arts support from the City of Santa Clarita and Los Angeles County. Additionally, it will provide support, networking and advocacy services for local artists and art organizations.
The organization’s mission is to enrich the Santa Clarita community through the development and facilitation of arts programming, facilities, education, support, and advocacy. Its first priority is to support the creation of a local Arts and Cultural Center. A place where artists can have shared studio space, practice rooms, performance space and exhibition space – with facilities that support all mediums of art.
The board is made up of local Arts Advocates: Sara Brown (iLead Schools), Stephanie O’Connor (Forge Ahead Arts), Alex Bozman (CalArts Alumni Association), Lisha Yakub Sevanian (Calgrove Media), David Stears (Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival), Mark Elfont (Santa Clarita Philharmonic), and Ed Hill (Master Chorale), with advisory board members, Sue Bird (Old Town Newhall Association), and Phil Lantis (City of Santa Clarita).
Arts for Santa Clarita is kicking off its community engagement by hosting a logo creation contest. It is seeking an original logo that is identifiable to the Santa Clarita Valley and has an artistic spin. One that is relatively simple in design, to aid in reproduction. A logo that embodies visual, performing and cultural arts in all mediums, in and around the Santa Clarita Valley.
All entries are due by Monday, March 19 and may be submitted in JPEG or PDF format to: artsforsantaclarita@gmail.com. Entrants must live or work in the Santa Clarita Valley. A $300 stipend will be awarded to the winning artist, if a logo is chosen. When submitting a logo, please include your full name, phone number, mailing address and email address. An artist’s statement may be submitted, but is not required.
The winning logo will be announced on Saturday, April 21st, 2018 at the Santa Clarita Arts Run in Heritage Park. This will be the first event hosted by Arts for Santa Clarita with an expected attendance of 300 to 500 people.
