2. Clocks! It’s that time again- Xico’s Annual Dinner and Art Auction is in February and we need artists to create objects for our silent auction. This year the theme is “the end of days” so we’re creating clocks. Any artists that want to get a clock of their own, please contact Xico. We provide the clock, you provide the creativity. This project lets artists help out their favorite community arts org (we are your favorites right?) and show off their artistic talents to the art collectors who attend our Annual Dinner and Art Auction.

3. “Celebrating Beauty, an Artist’s Perspective” Xico is teaming up with Cuervo Studio, and Hugo Medina to present the best art detour exhibit ever! The juried exhibit will be on display at The Crescent Ballroom ( ) during Art Detour March 16th – 18th 2012. Only new artwork will be considered, and proposals for art are due January 9th. Pieces must be 30″ x 30″ or larger. We do have access to a projector so multimedia proposals are accepted and encouraged. Please call to discuss 3D work. We are also looking for live models, artists interested in body painting and jewelry artists for a fashion show. More info and submission guidelines.
