The City of Columbia Heights is looking for a wide range of art styles for the poster series. The goal is to have each poster in a different medium.

For those looking to apply, please fill out the form here. Please include which style of medium, which three posters you’d like to replicate (you may be selected for one, two, or three posters depending on the number of applicants), and a sample of your work in that medium.
