Call for Artists: 2018 Design & Drive Art Contest

Once again, the West Michigan Honda Dealers are excited to announce an exhibition opportunity during one of the largest art competition in the world: ArtPrize Ten.

Honda Is Your Canvas

Create and share an original design concept that can be applied to a vinyl-wrapped Honda vehicle for outdoor display in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids: Rosa Parks Circle during ArtPrize, September 19 – October 7, 2018. 6 designs will be selected for display and put to a public vote, independently organized by the West Michigan Honda Dealers. The winner will be announced during the final week of ArtPrize, and will receive a 2-Year lease on a new 2018 Honda Civic.

Finalists’ selected medium and supplies should be all–weather and capable of withstanding the elements for the 19-day festival. Selected medium must be applied directly to a vinyl vehicle wrap (excludes windows) and cannot compromise the integrity of the vehicle’s value, underlying structure or functionality. We encourage application of the design to take place live during the launch of the festival, drawing additional interest and support for the entries.

Follow us on Facebook for the latest announcements.

Submit your design for consideration, along with a completed application, and optional bio/resume by July 31, 2018. Finalists will have an opportunity to apply their design to one of six vehicles, as assigned by the selection committee. Competition will be decided by online vote promoted through onsite signage and social media – the winner will be announced during the final week of ArtPrize, and will receive a 24-Month lease on a new 2018 Honda Civic. Must be 18 years or older by September 19, 2018 to win top prize.
