Lincoln Arts Festival 2018 Agreement


I have read the "Conditions of the Show" below and agree to abide by said conditions. In addition I do expressly release the Producer (Lincoln Arts Council) and the Owners of the Show Site (SouthPointe Pavilions) of and from any and all liability for any damage, injury or loss to any person, business or property which may arise from the licensing and occupation of the exhibit space by the applicant, and agree to hold and save the Producer and Owners of the Show Site harmless of any damage, injury or loss by reason thereof. I understand that the jurying fee is not refundable. Booth fees are refundable at the sole discretion of the Lincoln Arts Council, and under no circumstances after July 15th. Upon acceptance to the festival, artists agree that Lincoln Arts Festival may use images of their work for promotion, website or other publicity purposes in printed or digital form.


1.) The Artist who designs the work and is a principal of the business MUST be present to show their work during the entire festival. If the craft or art is signed by an individual, they are the person required to be at the show. If the business is named after the artist, that individual must be at the show in person. If more than one person is listed as the Exhibitor on this contract, Lincoln Arts Festival reserves the right to require proof that both are creators of the work and both are significant principals in the business. Only one artist may display per booth unless the work produced is a collaboration of two artists.

2.) No agents, dealers or sales representatives are allowed to attend in place of the artist.

3.) All work must be original and completely finished. No imports, kits, items made from kits, items made using commercial patterns or commercial molds, items assembled from pre-manufactured components, unfinished work, or art and craft supplies may be displayed or sold.

4.) Acceptance of an invitation to exhibit is a commitment to be in the show.

5.) A $30.00 fee will be charged on any check returned by Exhibitor’s bank. Any foreign check processing fees charged by our bank will be billed to the exhibitor at cost.

6.) Applicant agrees that any fees submitted may be applied to any current or past outstanding invoice the exhibitor has with Lincoln Arts Festival.

7.) Exhibitors may only show work in the category/medium in which he/she was invited, and typified by photos submitted. Only artists accepted in the Jewelry category may exhibit or sell jewelry; all jewelry regardless of materials must be entered in the Jewelry category.

8.) All items displayed must be for sale.

9.) Exhibitor’s booth must have a suitable backdrop to block the view of walls, storage areas or other Exhibitors’ booths. All of Exhibitor’s booth and display, including chairs, must be placed within the confines of the space. Nothing is to be placed in the aisles.

10.) Specific space requests are not guaranteed. Booth spaces are laid out with alleys behind and walkways between every other tent, essentially providing everyone with a “corner booth.” Exhibitors will be notified when they get their specific space assignment whether or not they have received their requested space.

11.) The Lincoln Arts Festival reserves the right to revoke the license granted by this contract at any time, including at the show. Lincoln Arts Festival will not be liable for paying any travel expenses, lost revenue or any other liability whatsoever beyond the space fees paid by the Exhibitor as a result of enforcing this provision. No refunds of jury fees or booth space are issued.

12.) The Exhibitor’s booth must be open and staffed during all regular show hours. Anyone arriving late, leaving before closing or breaking down during show hours may be refused entrance to future shows.

13.) Exhibitor’s booth must not interfere with adjacent exhibits in any way.

14.) Lincoln Arts Festival will not be liable for refunds or any other liabilities whatsoever for the failure to fulfill this contract due to reasons of the enclosure in which the show is to be produced, being, before, or during the show destroyed by fire or other calamity, or by any act of God, public enemy, strikes, statutes, ordinances, or any legal authority, or any cause beyond its control.

15.) Insurance, if desired by the Exhibitors, must be obtained by them at their own cost.

16.) Exhibitors understand and agree that the collection and submission of Nebraska sales tax as well as the possession of the proper sales tax permit is their sole responsibility.

17.) Exhibitors shall be liable for delivery, handling, erection, and removal of their own displays and materials.

18.) The Lincoln Arts Festival may require the removal of work considered to be in violation of these conditions and reserves the right to make final interpretation of all conditions.

19.) If any section, sentence, clause, phrase or portion of this licensing application/contract is, for any reason, held invalid or unconstitutional by any court of competent jurisdiction, such portion shall be deemed a separate, distinct and independent provision and such holding shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions.

20.) Privacy Policy: We respect your privacy and will never sell or trade your name, mailing address, or email address. However, we frequently receive requests for exhibitor contact information from the public, and will furnish your phone number, website and and/or email addresses upon such request unless you’ve indicated your preference to keep your contact information private.
