  • Artists are fully responsible for the care, safety, and security of their own property. The Freeport Park District and the Freeport Art Museum will not be liable for loss or damage to artwork or other property from any cause.
  • Only a single artist may apply for a booth. Artists will not be allowed to share a booth space unless submitting an application as an established art guild or art organization. (see qualifications below)
  • Art guilds and art organizations that have been established for at least 2 years are also welcome to apply as a group booth. Groups should submit the application with an Art Call account for the group. (Applications that are submitted under an individual's account for the group will appear as the individual's application and NOT the group's application, so be sure to set up an Art Call account for the group).
