Artists, this one’s for you.

ArtScape, an art show that takes place during the annual week-long Winter Party Festival in Miami, is being held in the first week of March. This year’s show will feature both “renowned and emerging LGBTQ artists,” according to a press release.


In years past, LGBT artists from around the world have displayed their art alongside local artists, with mediums ranging from photography to sculpture. Curators for the event are currently looking for submissions by local artists to feature in the show.


“LGBTQ artists representing every art form will come together under one roof for an exhibition and auction to benefit the National LGBTQ Task Force and many local LGBTQ nonprofit organizations,” reads a press release.


The LGBT Task Force, the national organization benefitting from this year’s ArtScape, “advances full freedom, justice, and equality for LGBTQ people,” according to their website. “We’re building a future where everyone is free to be themselves in every aspect of their lives.”


For those interested in submitting art for the show, two high-quality digital images showing the full scope of the piece must be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots.

With it you should include your name, phone number and email, title of work as well as its media and size, and a brief biography about yourself.


Selected artists will be notified by February 6, 2017. More information on the submission process can be found on the Winter Party website.



“We are really energized about this year’s ArtScape event as every year we get the opportunity to introduce our guests to amazing and talented artists who are willing to donate their artwork to support the LGBTQ community, Justin Bell, chair of the Winter Party Festival said. “Winter Party is more than just great dance events, it’s an artistic and cultural celebration as well.”


Winter Party Festival will take place from March 1 to March 7, and ArtScape will be held on Friday, March 3 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. More information on Winter Party Festival can be found at
