Enough Pie, the creative placemaking organization that's hosted the mega-art events Awakening and Awakening II: Fieldwork has released a Call for Artists for Awakening III: Solstice. Artists of all kinds — visual artists, dancers, installation artists, etc. — are invited to submit proposals via Enough Pie's website at enoughpie.org/solstice
