Artist Alley

We are now taking applications for the Grand Rapids Comic-Con “Spring Fling”, which is scheduled to be held on August 13-15, 2021, at the DeltaPlex in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Because a significant amount of artists who were scheduled for the cancelled November 2020 show have decided to be a participant in the “Summer Bash” there are very few spots open for Artist Alley. If you want one of those spots you need to sign up as soon as possible!

Application for the August 13-15 Grand Rapids Comic-Con “Summer Bash” Show Is Here

Since we have so few openings, we have decided to go with a “first come, first serve” application process. In order to secure your spot, you need to do the following as soon as possible:

  1. Fill out the Artist Alley application found here.
  2. Send $98 ($95 booth fee plus $3 Paypal fees) to
  3. Send the following to as separate attachments (no zip drives or files, Dropbox links, etc.):
  • Completed application as a pdf or jpeg
  • Three art samples in three separate jpeg files (no other format is acceptable)
  • A bio of the artist as a Word doc (no pdf, Outlook, etc.)
  • Links to the artist’s online work, store, a Word doc (no pdf, Outlook, etc. May be added at the bottom of the artist bio or sent as a separate attachment)

The first artists that get everything in and follow directions correctly will receive the following at the August 13-15, 2021 Grand Rapids Comic-Con “Summer Bash”:

  • A 6×2 foot table at the show in the “Artist Alley” area in a 6×6 floor space
  • Two chairs
  • Two three-day passes to the April 9-11 show

If you apply after the spaces are filled your purchase will be promptly refunded through Paypal. The first seven who complete the attachments but too late for open space will be placed on an alternate list and have their money refunded. We will keep your files and contact you if and when space opens up, and at that time we would require you to pay the cost of the booth if you choose to participate.
