KANNAPOLIS ó Calling all artists.
The N.C. Research Campus will hold an art show Oct. 25 so campus founder David Murdock and other collectors can buy artwork for the campus.
Organizers are inviting North Carolina artists age 18 and older to apply for entry to the show. The deadline is Sept. 1.
The juried invitational also will pay $2,750 in prizes.
Murdock, the billionaire owner of Dole Food Co. and Castle & Cooke, will choose artwork to display in the Core Laboratory Building.
He will invite representatives from each of the eight partner universities on the Research Campus to select art for their buildings.
Murdock is developing the $1.5 billion biotechnology hub on the ruins of an old textile mill he once owned in downtown Kannapolis. The art show will take place inside campus buildings and on the streets of the campus.
Art purchased will create a permanent collection for the campus. Murdock is especially interested in artwork by up-and-coming North Carolina artists, organizers said.
Tom Stanley, chairman of the fine arts department at Winthrop University, will serve as juror.
The entry fee is $35 per artist. Entries must be received by the Cabarrus Arts Council by 5 p.m. Sept. 1.
