In case you haven’t heard, AMA-CON 2018 will take place August 4 and 5 at the Amarillo Civic Center! In fact, to help our artists, vendors, and participants make plans, AMA-CON is now always scheduled for the first weekend in August!
Registration is open for the first-ever AMA-CON Art Show! This is an opportunity for artists of all ages and levels of experience to show their pop culture-inspired artworks at AMA-CON (content to be family-friendly, of course!).
There is no charge to enter. Simply complete the attached Participation and Release form and turn it by July 15.
Forms may be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or at the Amarillo Museum of Art at 2200 S. Van Buren.
Do not bring artwork to the museum! Submit the form by July 15 and bring your artwork to the Amarillo Civic Center Heritage Room on Friday, July 22nd between 2pm and 6pm.
Artworks will be on display for the duration of AMA-CON and must be picked up Sunday July 24th between 6pm and 8pm.
Great news! Amarillo’s Wyndham Garden is the official hotel of AMA-Con 2016! They’ve reserved a block of rooms for AMA-Con guests at a fantastic $89 per night rate, and that includes a full hot breakfast. You can learn more about the hotel at their website but to take advantage of this deal, you’ll need to call (806) 358-6161 and ask for the AMA-Con rate.
We’ll have a cool new feature at AMA-CON this year–a checking station! You’ll be able to leave your bags or props in a secure station while you enjoy the Con! The fee will be $5 and you’ll be assigned a box that will hold several bags and/or props. Single items, or items that won’t fit into a box such as walking sticks or light sabers can be checked for $2 each.
