Here in the "City Beautiful", what better way is there to contribute to the Orlando community than to make it beautiful, literally. Kween Cab is calling on ten artists in the local area to each "muralize" one pedicab for display in downtown Orlando. Kicking of the tour, each artist will be featured at the Kween Cab live paint installment at Artlando 2017. From there, the tour will run the entire month of October! Artists chosen will be on full display as our pedicabs provide rides at Creative City's 2017 IMMERSE, Come out with Pride 2017, EDC Orlando 2017, and during Halloween festivities downtown. Our cabs will also tour the state and be on full display at big Events in Gainseville, Jacksonville, St. Pete, and St. Augustine.

How it Works
Here's the best part, you choose the participants and the winners! Submissions will be accepted from 8/26 to 9/16. Once the submission deadline closes, we'll narrow down the field to the top 25 submissions. Voting will commence from 9/17 to 9/24 to determine which ten artists will be featured on each of the pedicabs. The top 10 vote-getters will each be featured at Artlando 2017, and will have their artwork run on a pedicab from 10/1 to 11/4. As the pedicabs operate in downtown and around the state of Florida, votes for "favorite work of art" will be tabulated. Votes will be counted on November 5th, and the favorites will be declared on November 6th.
Top - $1,000
2nd - $500
3rd - $250
The top three vote-getters will each receive a charitable donation to any local non-profit org. in their name.
Submissions will be accepted for one week, from September 9th to the 16th.
Please submit files in standard image format. If you are chosen as one of the ten featured artists, you may "live paint" the work submitted or any creative work you wish showcase on the "Tour de Art". Painted works of art only, please.
