Weir Farm, Connecticut’s only National Park and the only park in the country dedicated to impressionist art is hosting an Art in the Park contest. The public is invited to celebrate creativity at Weir Farm by participating and submitting a work of art. All artists, from beginner to professional, are encouraged to take part in this contest by submitting an image of a piece of artwork inspired by or made at the park. Any original work created at or inspired by Weir Farm in any visual art medium may be entered into the contest. This includes paintings, drawings, pastels, fabrics, sculpture, photographs, mixed media, and more!
Submissions will be accepted online through September 1, 2021. Once entered, artwork will become part of a virtual exhibit that is focused on showcasing artistic inspiration and creativity at Weir Farm, launching on our website on October 1, 2021. Participants enter by emailing an image of their artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org and filling out this form to provide information about their art and permission to use the image on the park website.
This is your chance to become part of Weir Farm’s long-lasting artistic tradition by sharing your artwork with the park today!
