The IUPUI Regatta en Plein Aire
On Saturday, September 22, 2012, the Herron Alumni Association will host its annual Art Contest at the IUPUI Regatta on the downtown canal. This contest is open to artists 18 years or older, whether amateur or professional. Using their own supplies, participants create original artwork in any medium. The $10 entry fee includes an official Regatta "Artist" t-shirt.
Our contest will be in two parts:
Plein Aire Event the day of the Regatta. 3 monetary prizes will be given at this event: $300, $200 and $100. Ribbons will be awarded for honorable mentions.
Regatta Art Show – artwork from last year’s Regatta will be on display and for sale at Creation Café during the week of Regatta. Artwork created this year will be in a Regatta Art Show and Opening Reception in 2013. Artists do not need to participate in the Plein Aire event to be eligible for the Regatta Art Show, however, they must register to participate in the show. Honorable Mentions and a $500 Purchase Award will be given at this event. All artwork is subject to approval from the Regatta Art Show Curator for its appropriateness for being included in the show.
