Artsplace is celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Hudson River artist John Frederick Kensett who was born on March 22, 1816 in Cheshire, Connecticut by sponsoring a banner contest.
Artists are invited to submit a depiction of their idea of a birthday greeting in a vertical format. The winning entry will be made into a large banner that will commemorate Kensett’s birthday and hang outside of Artsplace.
The contest is open to all artists age six through adult; student, professional and amateur. Submission must include the words “Happy Birthday Kensett!” on the artwork. Media choice is up to the artist and can include drawing materials, paints, photography, sculpture, collage or digital illustration.
