Art Takes Times Square is a competition by Artists Wanted. They’ve had several opportunities for artists with grand prizes including cash and solo gallery shows in major cities. I’m not particularly fond of the People’s Choice portion since it’s really a popularity contest. Personally I have not gotten very far in the past and the cost was north of $70, if I remember correctly, but I was encouraged by some friends to try again. This one is $25 and I figure I pay that for some of the local competitions. At least this is a chance to be seen by a much larger audience.
For this one, I decided to enter some of my fusion pieces. They will look great in Times Square!
Even though I’m not fond of the “popularity contest”, I may as well give myself a shameless plug: http://bkartphoto.artistswanted.org/atts2012 You’ve got about 4 1/2 days to prove me wrong by voting or, as they call it, Collecting on the People’s Choice thing so get to work 😉
Also, I have some work in this exhibition which is having an opening reception tomorrow night from 7-9 pm. If you live in the area, or are visiting, the show is in the Glass Gallery located at Pembroke Pines City Hall on the Southwest corner of Palm & Pines. If you can’t make it to the show, it will be on display until July 16th so you’ve got a little bit of time.
