Welcome To Sanford is pleased to recognize many of the talented artists who call our area home. Sanford/Lee County has a long history of supporting our dynamic arts community, stemming all the way back to the early days when the area was well-known for its many pottery artisans.
Today our area is blessed with a full range of artists, from musicians, dancers and performance artists, to those who work with wide variety of materials and surfaces.
We invite you to apply or nominate a deserving individual or group in the area that you believe is due for some extra attention!
Please fill out the form below in as much detail as you wish. If your nomination is under consideration for an upcoming weekly column, a member of our team will follow up to solicit more information and examples of your work.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the large number of our applications we receive, Welcome To Sanford regrets that we are unable to recognize every artist who is nominated for consideration. Lack of recognition on our part should not be considered as a negative reflection of your work in any way. Any materials or samples of our nominees’ work submitted for consideration include implied permission granted by the artist to allow Welcome To Sanford to utilize said materials in any manner we see fit, in implementation, promotion or marketing of the Artist of the Week feature.
