ArtsCov/CNY Artists Rewards Contest
Take part in art and and bring on the Spring! Time to work on your four CNY Arts Covenant agreements. Get an original piece of art once you complete all four. We’re inviting all CNY artists to enter a competition to design Arts Covenant rewards. And you can help. And you can get one!
The CNY Arts Covenant is launching a competition for ALL artists in Central New York to design the rewards that YOU will receive once you finish your Arts Covenant Agreements. In keeping with our effort to support the arts and artists we are inviting artists to design a reward for you that expresses the spirit of the CNY Arts Covenant.
So here’s the deal. If you know an artist OR are an artist, review the attached information on the CNY Arts Covenant Rewards Competition Call for Art and send it on to your artist friends OR enter the competition yourself. The grants to artists are SUBSTANTIAL and in three categories.
Complete your four agreements to be eligible for the original art that will be produced by CNY artists. If you need help thinking about things to do in order to fulfill your Arts Covenant agreements or if you’ve forgotten what they are go to www.artscovenant.com. Check out the CNY Arts Covenant Facebook. You can also find out what’s going on in the arts by going towww.cnyartists.com. If you sign up with CNYArtists you’ll get “Art Blasts” about art events.
The first 25 Arts Covenant participants who complete their four agreements starting NOW, will get one of the small piece of original art. ALL CNY Arts Covenant participants (including the first 25) who finish their four agreements will be eligible for monthly drawings for pieces of art valued at $100 each.
What you have to do to be eligible for a piece of original art:
1. Finish your four agreements.
2. Fill out a brief e-form describing what you did to fulfill the agreements.
3. Tell us the story of what it was like to fulfill ONE of the four CNY Arts Covenant agreements.
Contact us at email@example.com and we’ll tell you how.
VOTE on the art you like. Even if you haven’t finished all four agreements we need you to vote on the artwork submitted to the competition. Go to the CNYArtists Website (www.cnyartists.com) after May 15th and vote for the design you prefer in each category. You have an interest in what the arts rewards are!!! The Arts Covenant website (www.artscovenant.com) will link you to CNYArtists website so you can vote.
OPTIONAL BUT FUN: We’re gathering stories about how Central New Yorkers engage the arts in our community. These stories will be shared live during the Syracuse Stories Festival in July 2011. If you like to tell stories and think you might like to participate, check out the attached information about Syracuse Stories. We’d love to have you tell your “art” story during the July 30th Event at the Everson Museum of Art. It’s during the Downtown Arts and Crafts Festival/ArtsWeek.
We’ve looking for brief, funny, sad, moving, stories about you and your experience with art @ three minutes in length. Let us know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
