VIBES Visual Artist Application for the 2024 Season

This application is for Visual Artists applying for the 2024 Season of VIBES Edmond's First Thursdays held

April-October on the 1st Thursday of each month. All Visual Artist Applications will be reviewed by the selection committee in early February 2024. Following review all applicants will be notified. All applicants pay the $50 VIBES Application fee, which is the only fee participants are charged for the entirety of the VIBES Season.

This one-time fee is nonrefundable.

Visual Artists selected to participate in the 2024 VIBES Season will coordinate their individual pairings with the VIBES Staff and downtown Edmond businesses. Acceptance to participate in the VIBES Season does not guarantee placement for all 7 of the VIBES events.

Participants must be willing and able to keep up with email communications from the VIBES Staff.

VIBES Visual Artists are expected to accept their own payments for artwork and report sales tax.

No commission is taken by VIBES or any other entity.

Months Available/ Planning to Participate (check all that apply):


By submitting this application for consideration of participation in VIBES Edmond’s First Thursday, I agree to receive communications from the Edmond Fine Arts Institute’s VIBES coordinator in the form of emails and newsletters and permit the release of my contact information to participating Downtown Edmond Businesses. I release and discharge the Fine Arts Institute of Edmond, its board of directors and volunteers, the City of Edmond, downtown Edmond Businesses and other sponsors and officials for all claims of damages, demands, actions whatsoever in any manner arising or growing out of my participation in this event. This release and waiver extends to all claims of every kind or nature whatsoever, foreseen or unforeseen, known or unknown. I grant permission to sponsors and/or agents authorized to use any photos, videotapes, motion pictures, or any other record of this event for any purpose and such use shall be without compensation to me. I attest and verify that I have full knowledge of the risk involved in participation at a public event. Reasonable care will be exercised by the VIBES agencies and businesses to protect artwork, however exhibited items are the responsibility of the artist and he/she assumes all risk of loss from damage, theft, or destruction of the items from any cause whatsoever. The FAI and VIBES agencies agree to promote artist participation in VIBES to the best of their ability; however, monetary success is not guaranteed and is largely determined by the artists personal involvement in marketing and self-promotion. In addition, it is my responsible to collect local sales tax of 8.5% and submit payment to the Oklahoma Tax Commission in a timely manner and report all taxable income. I understand that a VIBES event may have to be cancelled due to inclement weather and expect no compensation for a missed month. The information provided in this application and its attachments is complete and accurate to the best of my knowledge and I am obligated to update any information supplied, and/or supply any new information as it becomes available.

Thank You for Applying for 2024 VIBES Season!
