This event will take place in Nashville, TN, and feature artwork selected in addition to interactive installations and performances. Submissions of all types of media are highly encouraged.

Work submitted should reflect an intersection of Art, Football and Nashville. Team colors, logos, photography and the stadium are all encouraged as inspiration but not mandatory. We want to proudly celebrate your artistic license in the work. Take chances and push the work. That’s where the magic happens. While a literal approach is not necessary, it must be apparent that your work is Titans themed or related.
