Recycled Art in the Park Contest
The City of Portage Park Board will sponsor the first annual Recycled Art in the Park Contest
this fall to promote recycling in the City of Portage. The contest will be a venue for artists to express their creativity and create public awareness about recycling. Entries will be displayed outdoors at the Celery Flats Historical Area. Public voting and judging will be conducted, with prizes awarded in a variety of categories, including a Popular Choice based on visitor voting.
Individuals, organizations, K-12 school groups, colleges and universities are all eligible to participate, with a limit of one entry per person or organization. Artwork must contain 100% recycled materials (except for bonding devices such as screws, nuts and bolts, welding, glue and other fastening materials) and fit into a 10’ x 10’ designated space.
Registration will take place in July, with a limit of 20 entrants being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Public viewing and panel judging will be held on September 29, 2012 and winners will be announced on Saturday, October 6, 2012.
