Does your art put works from Picasso and Monet to shame? Didn’t think so, but Tully’s® and the Pomegranate Center want to see what you’ve got! Now through May 3, 2013, artists of all abilities can submit a piece of original artwork to the Gathering Grounds contest on Tully’s® Facebook page, along with a short explanation of what community means to them. A panel of judges will help select two winners; one from a national pool of applicants and the other from Vermont. Both will win a $1,000 cash prize, $2,000 in building materials, and an invitation to help bring a permanent art installation of their work to life at the Waterbury build site in June. You can check out some of the art from past community builds on our Vimeo page here.
How will the winners be selected? The judges will evaluate entries based on the artist’s passion for enhancing the community through art, their value of spirit of collaboration, their willingness to roll up their sleeves and take part in a community building project, along with creativity, originality and thought put into the piece of artwork.
So what are you waiting for, painter/sculptor/welder/? Help us shape our community space - Submit today!
