How your artwork and images will be seen:

  1. Online visitors will be encouraged to view all submissions to #OCNYArtSeen @OrangeCountyArtsCouncil. This is an opportunity to have over one thousand viewers see your work. The Arts Council will be sharing and re-posting some of the submissions. 
  2. A selection of 50-100 images by the Orange County Arts Outreach Committee will be made from which original artworks will be invited to be displayed at the Orange County Government Center and will include your “label” info based only on what you write in your Instagram Caption. We will Direct Message you through Instagram only if your image is selected as part of this physical exhibition scheduled later in 2020. 
  3. Selected images will be printed to create a small flip-book highlighting some of the #OCNYArtSeen submissions. The book will be available for sale online by demand. Only those selected will receive a Direct Message through Instagram with the option to “opt-in” to participate in having your work included in the book.
