TO/FROM: Secret Admirer



So, someone's caught your attention, but you're too afraid to approach him or her. A secret message could be the jumping point to express how you really feel.

Arches Brewing Art is excited to kick-off 2021 with a fun online project — TO/FROM: Secret Admirer. The best messages to flatter your secret crush require something thoughtful, honest and unique. The key is to keep it simple and genuine. We'll host messages on our website and post some of the best ones to our Instagram account and display many starting February 14th at Arches Brewing (watch for details).


This project is open to anyone. Works selected for display at the gallery will be done via juried selection. We are not capturing any personal information, such as email or phone number — so your submission will remain completely anonymous (unless you do otherwise).



Your message has a 200 character limit, so stick to a brief written expression of how you feel because 200 characters goes fast. Be tasteful, graphic content won't be considered for gallery use.


Are you afraid to put actual names in the TO / FROM fields? You don't have to. Consider just using first names, initials, nicknames, or coded language. Everyone loves a mystery.

Participants grant permission to Arches Brewing to reproduce accepted messages for promotional uses in printed and electronic forms.
