Healing Hearts Artist Opportunities

Are you an artist looking to make a positive impact in your community? CAC's Healing Hearts is a community movement aimed at spreading awareness about our services in the 38 communities we serve, while raising money for our life changing services for children and families who have suffered abuse.

 

We're looking for artists to partner with local businesses to paint 5 foot heart sculptures that will be displayed throughout our 38 service communities. Learn more about this exciting opportunity and how to get started below!

Timeline

Artist Submission
Your artist submission can be emailed to Taylor Kanara at tkanara@cachelps.org. Artists will receive an email if they have been chosen by February 1st, 2021. 


Artist Placement 
Each artist will be paired with a sponsor. The artist will work with the sponsor on the design to incorporate colors, branding, & theme. This will be a collaboration. As soon as the artist is placed with a sponsor, the artists will be added and promoted on the CAC's website and social accounts.

Hearts on display in the 38 CAC Communities in Spring 2021

Submission Process/ Requirements

  • Artists need to submit the attached application along with a portfolio, website, or instagram account with artwork.

  • Complete and submit the License Agreement.

  • Each heart comes primed with acrylic urethane primer. You can then use artist grade, color-fast acrylic paint on the fiberglass. DO NOT use latex paints. The heart is not limited to paint. Feel free to use random materials such as fabrics, buttons, newspaper, etc.

  • The CAC will be handling the weatherproofing. We will be adding a urethane final clear coat to the large 60-inch hearts. These hearts can be stored outside once the final coat is on.

  • The sponsor will be the sole owner of the heart sculpture after the campaign.

  • Please contact Taylor Kanara at tkanara@cachelps.org as soon as heart is completed and dry to make pickup arrangements. Also feel free to email with any questions.
