The Museum of Coastal Carolina has selected “Flashy Fish” as the theme for its 2017 Recycled Art Contest. Contestants can submit artwork that depicts a real or mythical flashy fish. The dimensions of the artwork should be no larger than 15” x 12” x 12”. The artwork must be constructed only from recycled materials. Recycled paper, cardboard, plastic, metal, and wood are all acceptable. Use of glue, tape, paint, markers, crayons, and colored pencils on recycled materials is permitted. Artwork will be judged and prizes awarded in four categories: Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and an Adult (over age 18) category.
Artwork may be dropped off from November 10-17 at the Museum of Coastal Carolina located in Ocean Isle Beach on Monday-Saturday from 10-3. Each piece of artwork must be accompanied by an entry form. Entry Forms are available at the museum or may be printed from the museum’s website; visit www.MuseumPlanetarium.org and look under the Special Events tab. Artwork will be judged and displayed at the Museum on November 18 through November 25.
