The Alaska Railroad (ARRC) is seeking entries for its annual commemorative artwork program by Friday, March 12, 2021.
ARRC commissions the selected artist to create artwork as the basis for the ARRC's official 2022 commemorative print. Started in 1979, the program helps participating artists gain exposure with a connection to a beloved icon of Alaska.
Artist submissions must include an Alaska Railroad theme. ARRC retains all rights to the artwork from which ARRC will produce at least 250 signed and numbered prints, several thousand posters and several thousand lapel pins. The railroad pays the artist $3,000 and provides 10 artist proofs and 20 posters. The artist agrees to participate in print/poster sale-and-signing events in Anchorage and in Fairbanks. Signing events may also occur in an additional community, depending on the subject of the artwork. The Alaska Railroad pays for the artist’s travel expenses.
