The Art of the Album

Deadline March 31, 2023

If you were asked to create an album cover or poster to honor your favorite band, song, or music genre what would that look like?

Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts turns 60 in 2023, and with that celebration, we would like you to join the party and help us decorate with your art! As with any celebration, music is required, so we have named this year’s exhibition Pop: The Art of the Album!

We seek concepts from artists or collaborative artist teams to design and create pop art, concert posters, and music album covers using your chosen medium.

This year, our feature exhibit is to educate the public on the visual arts designed for music.

Show us how a band inspires your artistic talents and skills in a way that is done without words. Please do not include the band’s name or song titles in your work.

Let the viewer be the one to interpret the band that has aroused your ability to conceptualize and execute this work of art.
