Call for Artists: COSE and Guitar Mania 3.8.07

This from Abby Maier:

Hello everyone:

I am hoping you can assist us with an artistic challenge. COSE is a sponsor of the Guitar Mania project and we need your help and ideas.

We are looking for a unique guitar design that reflects the importance of small business to the local economy, and/or how business is key to the growth of this community. We are focused not only on Cleveland, but on the 8 county area of northeast Ohio, and would like a design that somehow celebrates the importance of business to our region. We would be thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the talents of a local artist who can help us express this concept.

After the public display period, the guitar will be displayed in the lobby of the new COSE offices in the renovated Higbee’s
Building in Public Square. There is only a short window for submissions- designs are due by next Thursday, March 8th, and the artist will then have a month to complete the guitar. Designs will still be submitted to the Guitar Mania jury for final approval. Artists will be paid an honorarium. Please download the attached form [email Juan for PDF] to apply (ignore the past deadline) and submit your design electronically to

or mail to:

Abby Maier
50 Public Square, Suite 200
Cleveland, OH 44113

Please email me with any questions or clarification on the theme.
Thank you!
