Anyone want $25k?

Dana Point is holding a contest to design an outdoor piece for display at Lantern Bay Park (25111 Park Lantern Road).   If your design gets picked, you win….$25,000!!!  Not only do you get the cash, you also get your work displayed in a beautiful location overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It’s also a very popular wedding location so it’s sure to be photographed all the time!

Now, I am usually not a fan on art contests or spec work in general because they deceptively promote free labor and impede designers from earning a proper salary.  But in this case, I feel that it is worthwhile because it’s for the community to enjoy and not just some dumb guy in a suit trying to get free work for his company.

Now for details on the project: The piece can be any form but it has to be made of all-weather materials and not exceed 6 feet tall.  Submit your concept sketches to City Hall (33282 Golden Lantern, Dana Point, CA 92629) by noon on Sept 7th.

If you need more info call 949-248-3532.
