The Binghamton Philharmonic seeks artwork submissions from local and regional artists based on the themes of Beethoven’s Symphonies. Selected works will be printed on coasters and distributed at our “Bee(r)thoven” fundraiser in April 2020 in partnership with Binghamton Brewing Co.

TIMELINE:

  • Deadline to Submit: Sunday, February 16th at 5PM
  • Notifications of Inclusion by: Thursday, February 20th

ARTWORK SUBMISSION & GUIDELINES:

The Binghamton Philharmonic will accept up to 9 submissions by individual artists of 2D artwork as DIGITAL FILES (jpegs preferred) that consider and respond to the themes of individual Beethoven Symphonies. We are looking to represent EVERY symphony as an individual coaster, so we welcome multiple submissions per artist.

Works must be submitted to Andrea Carey, Interim Executive Director via email at acarey@binghamtonphilharmonic.org.  Images must be at least 5” x 5” at 72dpi minimum. Note, these will ultimately be printed as round coasters, so please draft images with that in mind! Please label image files, in the following format: Lastname_symphony_01 [ex: Carey_symphony_09] to help us differentiate your submissions, and connect them easily to the symphony you’ve chosen!
