Breakaway Artist Collective Submissions
Our Festival is seeking proposals from local artists for exciting murals that will spotlight local talent and shape the Breakaway experience for fans throughout the festival site.

Breakaway developed and grew out of the desire to break free from the status quo. We got to where we are because we met some amazing people along the way that had an open mind to our ideas and our art, and we want to do the same for creatives in the communities we touch.

The Breakaway Artist Collective is a program that encourages artists with a vision to bring their dreams to life, breaking through the barrier of the ordinary and into the extraordinary for creatives and fans alike. Join our journey into the beyond! Submission details below.
Selected designs for Breakaway Michigan will be announced on July 26th, 2023.

Commission Fee: $500 paid to artist to cover labor + $1,000 prize awarded to one artist of the audience’s choice!
Launch Timeline:

June 26 - Open call announced
July 19 - Submission deadline
July 26 - Artist Selections Announced
August 16 - Fabrication completion date & load-in begins
