Call to Artists
Art + Soul is seeking submissions of creative pieces in any medium that are inspired by or connected to the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. The artwork does not need to be newly created work; it just needs to be related to ECHO’s mission, which is to educate and delight people about the ecology, culture, history and opportunity for stewardship of the Lake Champlain Basin.
Artists will be invited to a one night benefit and event on June 6th, 2013 in which the artwork will be sold with a 50 – 50 split going to ECHO and to the artist, and you set the price! For more information about the event or art submissions please contact Christy Mitchell or Geoff Hand.
Artist Open House at the ECHO: March 28, 2013
Artists: be inspired, learn more about ECHO, and plan your next masterpiece! Join us on Thursday, March 28 from 5:30 – 8:00 pm for a opportunity to learn more about ECHO and the organization’s mission. The reception will take place at ECHO, located at 1 College Street, in Burlington, Vermont. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be available, and artists attending the open house will receive 3 free day passes allowing access to ECHO anytime this spring while developing ECHO-inspired artwork.
Artists that submit works of art inspired by or connected to the ECHO’s mission will have the opportunity to show and sell their work at the Art+Soul 2013 Event on June 6, 2013.
You can RSVP for the ECHO Artist Open House event via facebook.

About the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center
ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, at the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization celebrating the Ecology, Culture, History and Opportunity for stewardship of the Lake. ECHO strives to teach visitors (approximately 150,000 each year) about the importance of taking care of the Lake Champlain watershed and to look for ways they can improve their habits and action on land and in the water to benefit the health of our community. When we all work together, the frogs, fish, turtles, snakes, birds, mammals with two and four legs, all benefit. ECHO believes that all it takes is “one drop” of positive action to set in motion a ripple of positive change.
