Pelican Ball 2022

Acadiana Center for the Arts is seeking artists to create an original design on a small or large scale pelican to be auctioned during the Pelican Ball on Thursday, December 1.

To apply, please download the 2022 Pelicans on Parade Pelican Ball Submission Guidelines & Templates. You may submit your design using the provided templates by attaching them to the form at the bottom of this page by August 29th, 2022.

The Pelican Ball recognizes the people who have shaped the arts in Acadiana through their commitment and service. We honor both individuals who have contributed directly to the arts council’s work and individuals who have shaped the broader cultural life in Acadiana through their work.

We honor these individuals, and we celebrate our thriving culture in the best way we know how: with a night full of food, music, and artful surprises amidst the core ‘flock’ of Acadiana’s cultural community.

Why a Pelican?
In 2000, Acadiana Center for the Arts worked with artist David Fox and students at public elementary schools served by AcA’s arts education programs to design the first “Pelicans on Parade.” In 2021, AcA re-introduced the Pelicans on Parade as part of an annual fundraiser, the Pelican Ball, where new, unique pelicans are auctioned off as part of the benefit for arts education in Acadiana.

Download the original Pelican Field Guide from way back when! This document has images of all of the original Pelicans on Parade and lots of historic info on the project.

The event is finished.
