So I’m collaborating with H&M on a really exciting project for young artists and designers called ‘Your Art Here.’
Your Art Here is an all styles visual arts contest giving aspiring artists and designers the opportunity to gain exposure by exhibiting their work in the window of the H&M store located at 42nd Street and 5th Avenue in New York City and also be a part of an exclusive T-shirt collection, sold in H&M stores all over the US.
Especially exciting this year is the fashion and arts savvy jury, which I am a part of (woot woot)! See who else is on the jury here.
Together we’re helping aspiring artists kick-start their arts and design career – and you can help too! Vote for your favorite art pieces or enter your own art to win!
The 25 pieces with the most votes will be showcased to H&M’s esteemed panel of judges who will use their expertise to choose the top 5. The 5 winning art pieces will be installed in the H&M store window on 42nd St and 5th Ave where it will be on display for the millions of pedestrians passing by each day. The winning artwork will also be a part of an exclusive T-shirt collection, sold in H&M stores all over the US. Join Your Art Here and you just might see your creativity come to life on a garment.
New for 2011’s contest is the opportunity for five grand prizes, all of which will include:
– A $500 H&M gift card
– A $2,000 stipend to support an up-and-coming art career
