Apply for the 2017 Mint Learn & Earn team – and you could be accepted and learn a lot. And earn quite a bit too from the sale of your creative work at the Palmer Park Art Fair in May. Young artists ages 13 to 18 are invited to apply now by submitting three digital images and sharing some details. Early deadline is Dec. 29 and final deadline to apply is Jan. 23. Early applicants may be eligible for a pop up and other extras.
If you want to see the creative future of Detroit, and support creative artists ages 13 to 19, come to the Palmer Park Art Fair on Saturday and Sunday.
Mint will have two tents this year – 15 artists, up from 11 last year. And one of our 2015 alumni, Ackeem Salmon, is in his first solo art fair in a tent nearby.
The photo above of Eleanor Olson painting was taken by Mint photographer Omari June Norman. Below is jewelry by Trinity Brown and artist Maisha Rahman at last year’s Palmer Park fair.
They create jewelry, crocheted penguins, photographs, paintings, multi media and more. Their work will be great graduation gifts, birthday presents or gifts for teachers, fathers or yourself. Details are found on the Palmer Park ART Fair website. Delectable art is found in the two Mint tents half way up to the Palmer Park Log Cabin.
