WILLIAMSBURG-Culturefix and Williamsburg Area Transit Authority (WATA) are collaborating on a new community art project.
Culturefix announced on August 17 it is now accepting art submissions that will be used for two WATA bus wraps. The winners’ artwork will be wrapped around the buses and on display for six months.
There will be two categories of submission, amateur and professional. Anyone can enter the amateur competition including children, students, and adults who want to create a piece of art to go on a bus. Professional artists are invited to create artwork to go on a second bus in a separate category.
Winners in each category will be determined by a select panel of judges with a prize of $300 awarded in the amateur category and $500 in the professional category.
Entrants must reside within the Historic Triangle area. Submissions will be accepted through September 15 with winners announced on September 20. The two buses will be wrapped and displayed the weekend of October 2.
Artists interested in applying for the competition should visit www.culture-fix.org. For additional information, contact Steve Rose at firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-592-4289.
