Ancient City Mosaic
Monday, February 25, 2013 at 12:00 AM - Monday, April 22, 2013 at 4:30 PM (PST)
Artists of all ages and ability levels are invited to share their artist impression of St. Augustine by participating in Ancient City Mosaic presented by Michaels Stores®. This project will showcase the creative talent of our local and regional community. The 450-piece exhibit, the number of pieces is representative of St. Augustine’s upcoming anniversary, will first be displayed throughout the St. Johns County community at all six St. Johns County Public Library System locations and the St. Augustine Art Association. The exhibit will then be brought together and featured as a grand 450-piece mosaic. Ancient City Mosaic is supported by the St. Augustine 450th Commemoration, Sertoma Club of St. Augustine, St. Johns County Education Foundation, St. Augustine Art Association, St. Johns County Public Library System and St. Johns Cultural Council.
Registration is open during the call to artists from Feb. 25 to April 15, 2013. The cost to register is $10 for artists over the age of 17, which includes a 12 inch by 12 inch canvas. The first 100 people to pick up their canvas from Michaels Stores will receive a $10 gift card to Michaels Stores. Free 8 inch by 10 inch canvases will be distributed to St. Johns County Schools through the art programs to help enable student participation. While student canvases are free, an entry fee of $5 is applied to students 17 years old or younger. Any medium that fits on the supplied canvas is eligible.
