Local Talent Program

Since its inception, Art San Diego has recognized and supported artistic talent in the San Diego Community. In 2019, we are launching the new LOCAL TALENT Program to further amplify the focus on San Diego’s exceptional artistic talent. The LOCAL TALENT Program augments and extends the former LaunchPad Program.

Sponsored by UBS Financial Services ad Redwood Media Group, the LOCAL TALENT Program is designed to give three to five artists who have demonstrated exceptional talent in their field of work and are engaged in art as their career an opportunity to exhibit at San Diego’s only contemporary fine art fair. Selected artists will be awarded Art San Diego exhibition space, in addition to marketing features, and inclusion in publicity and promotional campaigns.

Artists will be nominated for the LOCAL TALENT Program by our San Diego based committee.

LOCAL TALENT artists will be announced in September 2019.

This jury-selected program is open to up-and-coming artists who have demonstrated exceptional talent in their field of work and who want to make art their career.
The selected LaunchPad Artist will have the chance to exhibit at the show and will be featured on the website and included in publicity and marketing campaigns to collectors and media prior to the show.
