lobbyLeesburg, VA (October 8, 2019) – The Leesburg Commission of Public Art (COPA) invites artists to submit color photographs that show the cultural diversity of the Town for a new display in the Town Hall lobby. Up to 16 photos will be selected by a panel of four artists. Deadline to submit photographs is Wednesday, October 30, 2019.

Photographs should portray the cultural diversity of Leesburg, the environment and community at work, and the people who make Leesburg what it is today.

The selected photos will be professionally printed and mounted for display in the two north alcoves of the Town Hall lobby. At the end of the two-year display, the Town will give the photographs to the artists. 

This call is open to all artists and previous public art experience is not required. Each artist may submit one photograph that has been taken within the Town of Leesburg limits between 2017 and 2019. All submission requirements can be found at www.leesburgva.gov/lobbyphotos
