Arkansas Arts Council Seeks Performing and Visual Artists for Arts on Tour Roster


LITTLE ROCK, AR – The Arkansas Arts Council is seeking performing artists, visual artists and art groups to apply for the 2014-2015 Arts on Tour (AOT) roster. Deadline to apply for the roster is October 25, 2013. To download an application, visit and click on “Programs,” or call (501) 324-9766.

The Arts on Tour roster provides a list of Arkansas’s finest solo and ensemble performers, individual visual artists and prepared art exhibitions available for touring within the state. Many of these roster artists will also provide workshops, master classes and open rehearsals.

Selected new Arts on Tour artists are publicized via the roster to arts organizations, festival and event planners, schools, civic organizations and government entities. The Arts on Tour program reimburses 40 percent of the contract costs for nonprofit presenters who book artists listed on the roster.

An independent panel chooses new roster artists each year through an audition/interview process. Selection is based on the quality of the artists’ work and on a demonstrated ability to tour in Arkansas.
