The Community Foundation invites artists to submit their original artwork for inclusion in the Final Report of the Discuss Door County: Growing Older Initiative. The Community Foundation will donate $250 to each Door County charity or school selected by the artists whose work is included in the published Final Report. We expect to select 10 original paintings, sketches, sculptures and/or poems.
Discuss Door County is the banner under which the Door County Community Foundation listens to the community. Throughout 2016, community gathered together to share their aspirations and visions for us as we grow older together as part of Discuss Door County: Growing Older in Door County. The Final Report is an outgrowth of that work. Rather than releasing a dry report, the Community Foundation wants to add the flavor that is so indicative of Door County and enhance the report with artwork and creativity.
A public reception to release the Final Report and unveil the artwork will be held on May 9th, 2016 at Hope United Church of Christ in Sturgeon Bay from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
The Community Foundation will accept original works of art that highlight any 1 of the 3 important themes of this work. Namely, an intergenerational community, the beauty of Door County, and/or connecting people.
Paintings and sketches should be on canvas, framed, or otherwise ready for public display. Sculptures should be display-ready as well. Pieces should be delivered to the Community Foundation at 342 Louisiana St., Sturgeon Bay by Wednesday, March 15th. Original poetry should be in an electronic form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the artist will retain ownership of the artwork, the Community Foundation will be assuming the unlimited right to reproduce the artwork in furtherance of its charitable mission.
