The Arts Council Chooses Winners for the Mask Competition
Information provided by The Arts Council of Brazos Valley
The Arts Council of Brazos Valley recently launched a Face Mask Design Competition where creatives of all ages and mediums had the opportunity to design an original mask. While we wish we did not have to wear them, we believe it is time to embrace masks as an expression of personal fashion! From the practical to the outlandish, we saw masks of incredible creativity and diversity. Thank you to everyone who participated and allowed us to see your vision. The Arts Council Gallery Committee had a tough time judging, but we are excited to announce our winners:
Holly and Holden McBerty
Evonne Alford Sturm
Ms. Meisha P
We offer a hearty congratulations to our winners and a big thank you to our participants!
Winners, you will now be asked to recreate your design on one of our wooden masks, graciously provided to us by Burr’s Unfinished Furniture. To receive your wooden mask, stop by The Arts Council in South College Station starting tomorrow September 1, 2020. After which, you will have two weeks to complete and submit the final version of your work on the provided mask. We ask that you return your completed wooden mask by September 18, 2020. You will be able to pick up and return the masks at the front desk; they will be marked with your name and original mask design
Your finished pieces will tour through several of our community galleries and you will have an opportunity to speak with the Executive Director about your artwork through a short video conference. These short interviews will then be featured on our social media for you to share with friends and family! Interviews will be scheduled after the masks have been returned to The Arts Council.
At the end of the touring period, efforts will be made to return the “mask-erpiece” to the creator!
