If you’d love to have your art on display at the High Museum of Art, then there’s a brand new opportunity open to all Atlantans that might help that dream become a reality. The High are planning a brand-new next community-driven installation on the Woodruff Art Center’s Carroll Slater Sifly Piazza.
Designer Tanya Aguiñiga is asking Georgians across the state to help out and come up with their own design to be apart of the installation, entitled HAPPY JOYLANTA.
The High Museum of Art announced the contest via blog post, asking “Georgians ages five and older to design a piñata to be part of HAPPY JOYLANTA.”
Aguiñiga is known for her community-based work, centered on amplifying voices through thought-provoking art and design. She wants this new piñata piece to “invites wonder and offers a spirit of celebration through partnerships with local communities.”
All you have to do to enter is draw or doodle your idea for a piñata, as imaginative and expressive (of any shape or size) that you can dream up, set to push the visual boundaries of celebration. For more information on how to participate, click here or e-mail the High Museum of Art at firstname.lastname@example.org..
You have until January 15, 2023 to submit your designs. You will need a digital copy of your drawing to upload.
