BRIDGEPORT — Think you have the next oil-and-cardboard masterpiece? Now is your chance to submit it for a special, cardboard-only art show happening at Bridgeport's Co-Prosperity Sphere.

The Art on Cardboard Show is seeking submissions for its 15th annual exhibit in October. Described by organizers as an art show "by the people for the people," the exhibit features pieces from dozens of artists guided by just one rule — use cardboard.

Most pieces are art paintings or drawings on cardboard, and artists of varying skill levels are encouraged to submit works to the show. Submissions can be dropped at the Co-Prosperity Sphere, 3219 S. Morgan St., from 5-8 p.m. Oct. 2. Artwork can also be mailed in to the gallery, exhibit founder Mike Pocious said on the event's Facebook page. 

The Art on Cardboard Show is unique in that pieces are priced to sell and are handed over to the buyer immediately. Most pieces cost between $10-$150, a spokeswoman said.

Artists will get a "huge" portion of the sale, with the rest benefiting Lumpen Radio. 

The show, presented by the Birdhouse Museum of Bridgeport, will take place from 6-10 p.m. Oct. 6 at the gallery.
