Leimert Park Jazz Festival Launches 3rd Annual Art Competition and invites South L.A. artists to compete for a chance to win $1,000 and more.
The Leimert Park Jazz Festival seeks newly created, original, two-dimensional artwork on canvas that visually depicts the vibrancy of jazz music, jazz culture, and the Leimert Park community. Artwork should be innovative, engaging, and visually expressive of the Leimert Park community and its jazz legacy. Electronically produced artwork will be disqualified. The winning artwork will become the commemorative poster for the 2022 Festival.
The Leimert Park Jazz Festival is executive produced by Diane Robertson in association with Dwight Trible and The World Stage. It is a celebration of jazz, community and the cultural heritage of Leimert Park. The live event brings together a diverse, family-friendly audience to enjoy a fun-filled day that includes a community resource zone, health & wellness zone, kids’ zone, food truck zone, dance, art, and, of course, outstanding live jazz from local and world-renowned musicians.
The winner of the competition will be recognized as the Official Visual Artist of the 2022 Leimert Park Jazz Festival. With this designation, the winner will receive a $1,000 cash prize and the opportunity to exhibit and sell her/his artwork in the Visual Arts Tent at the 3rd Annual Leimert Park Jazz Festival at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza (outdoors at the upper level parking lot) on Saturday, August 27, 2022.
