Kalamazoo artists vie for big-time competition
You could call it drive-by artistry.
The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts is holding a billboard contest for artists who live in Kalamazoo County.
Farrell Howe is with the KIA. She says artists must submit a one-page biography and five images of their work to enter the competition.
"Winners will then be awarded the ability to have their artwork featured on a billboard for one year," Howe says. "Basically what's great about that is it doesn't stay in one spot. The billboards will be rotating across 850 sites inWest Michigan."
Artists can submit paintings, drawings, pictures of their sculptures and photographs -- all done in a horizontal format.
Twenty finalists will be selected by a panel and the public will choose the work that’ll go on the billboards.
