Call for Submissions for Future Issues
Calling All Creative Types!

The world turns to the arts during times of celebration, healing, education, comfort, remembrance, relaxation, motivation, and more. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that more people are at home consuming the arts in many ways….streaming movies and concerts, reading books, viewing online art exhibits, and even making their own art.  It is your own art that we are most interested in sharing.

The Arts Council of Moore County and Given Memorial Library are accepting submissions to Moore ArtShare – COVID Edition, a new online sharing of creative and artistic works that will showcase how the Moore County community is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. All ages are welcome and encouraged to submit work. Based on the response, we plan to offer regular issues as a historical record of the time we are living through.

In the words of Romero Britto, famous pop artist and founder of the Happy Art Movement, “art is too important not to share.”  Come on Moore County, share your creative creations with us!
