Community Art Project

You're invited to submit art for display in The Gallery at The Radio Room!

KAFM 88.1, Grand Junction’s only locally-focused, independent radio station, is celebrating “15 years of connecting our community” with a variety of concerts, events and community projects to mark this hallmark anniversary for the station.  KAFM’s Community Art Project kicks off the celebration by inviting artists, listeners, and community members of all ages to create a single piece of art with the theme: “this is what community looks like”!  

All levels of amateur and expertise are invited to submit their art on any medium to be displayed in the Radio Room at KAFM, starting March 1st, 2014.  Submissions will be accepted from February 1st through April 4th, 2014, and the exhibit will hang until October 2014.  All submissions must be clearly labeled with name of artist, name of piece, medium, contact phone & email, and category (professional, amateur, under 12).  

Works may be delivered to KAFM Community Radio, 1310 Ute Avenue, any time during station business hours from 9am to 4pm Monday through Friday.  

The public is invited to view the exhibit at any time starting March 1st in The Gallery at the Radio Room.  People’s Choice Awards will be tallied during KAFM’s Spring Member Drive, the week of April 11th through the 18th.  Prizes in each category will be awarded and include dinner gift cards, gallery framings, art supplies, art classes, concert tickets, and more. 

Community Events

The Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture is embarking on an economic impact study of the arts in Grand Junction for 2016. They will be attending cultural events and gathering paper surveys from patrons. If you attend cultural events and see them there, please take 2 minutes to complete the anonymous survey and be a part of this extremely important project that will benefit the entire community. Contact Lorie Gregor, 970-254-3876 with questions.
