Ink it in: December 16 through January 10 is the registration window for the 18th Annual CSWD Creative ReUse Art Showcase! It’s the trash-to-treasure art event of the year for Chittenden County high school students. This contest invites participants — and those who view the art — to see that there is still plenty of use and beauty in materials we typically toss in the trash can.
Choose from seven entry categories, plus you’ll have a shot at People’s Choice, a “Strongest (written) Statement” award chosen by the judges from all entries, plus Best In Show — that’s TEN chances to win a fabulous array of cash and prizes from your favorite local sponsors. Category winners and other select artists will also earn the awesome experience of having their art displayed at Frog Hollow Gallery in Burlington for the month of March.
Here are the category choices:
* 2-D Awesome Art
* 3-D Awesome Art
* Fabulous Fashion
* Perfectly Practical
* Techno Totems
* True Trash
* And our newest category: Interactive Inventions
Please, spread the word! This competition is for any Chittenden County student, grades 9-12, and not just those in an art class. Check out some of the past entries for inspiration, talk to your teachers and friends, and start collecting materials for your reuse art!
