ArtsBuild Student Art Contest Postponed

Event And Contest Will Take Place Spring 2015

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Creative Juices and the corresponding student art contest has been postponed until Spring 2015. Any submitted artwork will be held until that time. The new deadline will be announced after the first of the year. 

Chattanooga-area students entering grades 9-12 are eligible to enter an art contest sponsored by ArtsBuild (formerly Allied Arts). The first-place winning artwork will be featured on promotional marketing materials for ArtsBuild's new event, Creative Juices: Breakfast on the Bridge to Support Arts Education. 

All submitted artwork must be original and created by the student. Any 2-dimensional media will be accepted (pencil, watercolor, ink, photography, etc.). Artwork must include image(s) of the Walnut Street Bridge and be no larger than 9 x 12 inches. 

The first-place winner’s artwork will be featured on the event’s marketing materials, and he or she will receive a $250 cash prize.

"Since Creative Juices is centered on raising funds for arts education, we really wanted to feature original student artwork prominently in the marketing materials for the event,” said Rodney Van Valkenburg, ArtsBuild’s director of Grants and Initiatives.

Creative Juices: Breakfast on the Bridge to Support Arts Education is a new event that will take place in Spring 2015 (date TBA) from 8 a.m. to noon on the Walnut Street Bridge. The event will raise money to support ArtsBuild's education programs and will include food, art activities, and entertainment.
