ArtCon 7: Artist Lottery Video

by Anne Bothwell 7 Oct 2011 7:52 AM

How will Art Conspiracy run its new artist lottery this year? Judging by the video, the process looks….scientific.


About 150 artists participate in Art Conspiracy every year.  But which 150 will it be?

In the past, ArtCon simply issued the call, and the first to sign up were in.  As the annual fund-raiser grew, the sign up period got shorter and shorter. Last year, the roster filled up in minutes.

This year, the Conspirators are trying something different: a lottery.  The call for the artist lottery has already closed and the lottery winners will be announced Wednesday, Oct. 12.  Til then, amuse yourself by watching the Art Con team refine their new system. Video’s directed by Erica Felicella, with camera work and editing by Emily McCartney. Music’s by Datahowler, who will perform at Art Con 7.

ArtCon 7 is Nov. 12.  The beneficiary is Musical Angels. Art&Seek will be there.  Hope you will be too.
