The Everhart Museum, an arts partner of Lackawanna County, is seeking creative artworks from area students and residents centered on the theme of “Sidewalk Surfing: The Arts & Culture of Skateboarding.”
This display will be part of The Everhart’s “Decked Out” community art exhibit, which will be in Gallery One from August 2 to December 30.
Open to all individuals in Northeastern Pennsylvania, the design should illustrate a skateboard of the artist’s dreams. Originality is the focal point of this competition.
The design work must be done in the following media: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, or mixed media (2D). No videos, 3-D work, or installation pieces will be accepted. The dimensions must be no greater than 16” x 20” and must be unframed and unmatted. Reproductions will not be accepted, and the works will not be sold.
An entry form/ID tag must be attached to the reverse side of each original piece. All pieces must be submitted to The Everhart Museum office by 4 PM on Saturday, June 1.
A panel of museum staff and community partners will judge the show and select the artwork for display.
