It’s been over a week now since I submitted my entry for Art Takes Times Square, one of the largest art competitions in the world, to take place in New York City. The gigantic exhibition will take place on huge video billboards in June of this year.
I have not been able to find exact dates of the exhibition, but when I do I will pass along this information to all of you at Artpromotivate.
Many of you have already read my earlier article explaining the details of this hugely popular art contest. For those who have not done so, kindly visit this post:
I had a few problems with my entry very early. I could not acquire access to my portfolio for awhile, only seeing an error screen. I contacted support at Artist Wanted twice. Yesterday they emailed me notifying that the error was fixed, and I now have access to my Art Takes Times Square portfolio entry.

I have a helpful tip to share with you that will help to build your network of artist contacts. If you are collecting other artists through the public artists page described above, leave feedback in the Facebook Social Plugin. This comment will be seen by all other artists who visit that particular portfolio entry. By doing so, you may receive invitations for friending at your Facebook profile.
If you are one who would rather direct others to your Facebook page instead, log into your Facebook profile first, then go to the public artist page. Click on Open Portfolio in New Window icon to go directly to an artist’s Art Takes Times Square portfolio. Then, open another tab in your browser, return to Facebook, and login to your Facebook page. Go back to the Facebook social plugin and leave a comment.
This comment will automatically be posted as your Facebook page, instead of your profile!
Then, in order to comment on another person’s entry, you will again have to again log into your Facebook profile and go through the same process.
A notification for each comment will appear at your Facebook page Timeline. If you reply to another person’s comment, this appears on their Facebook Timeline.
