T-Shirt Design Contest—NEW!


Calling all designers! Showcase your talent and be part of the Student T-Shirt Design Contest.

The essence of the t-shirt design contest lies in the celebration of art, individuality, community, and culture within our local community. The theme of this 2024 t-shirt design contest is Reflections of Identity: Us, Them, Me and should highlight the importance of identity, whether it’s individuality or community identity, as well as showcase how art can be transformed into wearable designs.

Show us what you’ve got! We’d love to discover your artistic talent and share it with the thousands of community art enthusiasts, neighbors and friends at this year’s show.
