Artwork will be displayed outside around the proposed garden site and inside Town Hall. The Town of Shady Shores desires to keep displays safe from damage or harm. Artwork not chosen will be returned at the end of the contest. Artists will be notified when to pick up their work. Artwork will only be kept for 15 days from the close of the contest.
Artists will be notified after each round. Winners will be determined in a three-round process:
Round 1: Community members will choose the top 6 by vote at the garden dedication on November 6, 2021. Each voter will be allowed to vote for their six options. Art will be displayed using the submitted 22x36 foam board. The community's top 6 choices will move on to round 2.
