Call for Artists

With great pleasure we at Circus Couture invite you to participate in our Silent and Live Art Auction.

Last year Circus Couture presented an art gallery which evolved into a world class avant guarde circus and fashion show at the Palms bringing over $100,000 of aid to the Children's Specialty Center of Nevada via the St. Baldrick's foundation to help children of our local community in their fight with cancer.

With over 740 guests in attendance, Circus Couture overwhelmed the Palm's expectation of our drive to make an event to remember. This year we are doing it again.

Circus Couture 2011 will take place at the Joint at Hard Rock (where names as big as Santana grace the stage) to again use art and imagination, what we all do best, to give back to our community and to create yet another unforgettable event of world class circus performance, couture fashion and costume design, and of course a Fine Art gallery and auction.

Check out the Call to Artists [.pdf] as well as the Artist Submission Form [.doc].

For more information, questions and/or comments, contact Brien McCrea and check out their new website (which is still evolving) in this year's theme of REVOLUTION!
