As part of its mission, the Whitewater Main St. Festival is to support the arts and one of those ways is through a special high school student show during the event on September 15, 2018. It is open to all high school students in the state.
Committee member, Lisa Dawsey, states, “It’s important that we support our creative youth with this type of encouragement through a show of their work. The Festival will be selecting a Best of Show and a cash award will be given from funds raised as part of the Festival’s mission.” “The Festival is an arts-infused event with music, art & craft booths, food, painting on the street and other hands-on activities for visitors”
The Festival is organized by Downtown Whitewater, Studio 84, Whitewater Chamber, and the Whitewater Arts Alliance.
It is free to enter up to two pieces; images of each piece must be submitted. From these images, one piece will be selected by a juror and guaranteed in the show. It will be in the running for the Best of Show award. Depending on the total number of entries received and if space is available the second piece submitted will also be on display also. Artists will be notified via email or phone which piece/s they should deliver.
Deadline for submission of entries is June 15th. Art needs to be delivered to Studio 84’s gallery, the host of the show, by August 1. Awards will be announced during the Festival @ 2 pm on Sept. 15.
