Portland Winter Light Festival 2020 - Call for Art

Welcome all creatives to the 2020 Portland Winter Light Festival call for art submissions page!

Please join us in making Portland sparkle and shimmer.


This year’s theme is:


Into the Dreamscape


What do you see when you close your eyes?

Where do you go when your gaze freezes off into space?

Help us see the other side of the universe, the magic in science, the colors in the light, the beauty in the absurd.

Take us to a place where robots surf rainbows on oceans of honey, where volcanoes spew birds into the sky. We want to see your dreams of the multiverse come to life. We want to feel your mind explode with ideas.

It’s the year 2020. You’ve been sleepwalking toward this your whole life.

The stage is set.

The curtain is drawn.

The lights are out.
