The organizing committee of Art Week Des Moines is looking for 3 artworks to be donated as prizes for an art activity. Each selected artist will receive a $300 honorarium. The 3 selected pieces will be awarded to the top 3 winners of the "Public Art Scavenger Hunt", a virtual competition taking place throughout the art week (June 19-26th, https://artweekdesmoines.com/), with sponsorship from the Greater Des Moines Public Art Foundation (https://dsmpublicartfoundation.org/). The Scavenger Hunt encourages Des Moines area residents to explore and find existing public art in the metro area via web mapping services such as Google Maps or Apple Maps. 

To submit your artwork for consideration, please email good quality images of the works that you are offering to donate to tibich72@gmail.com with the subject line "Donation: Public Art Scavenger Hunt Prizes". Please limit your entries to 3 images, and include artwork details for each one. There is no fee to submit.

The deadline for submissions is Sunday, May 31st, 2020 11:59pm. You will be notified by Wednesday, June 3rd if your artwork was accepted.
