Art In Bloom
Tulip Time and the Holland Area Arts Council are pleased to announce the 2019 Art in Bloom (AIB) Festival Artwork Competition through which a work of art is selected for the official Tulip Time poster. Each year, the Holland Area Arts Council invites a juror to select the Top 20 pieces for AIB. Kristin Jass Armstrong, Executive Director of the Saugatuck Center for the Arts, will be the 2019 juror.
Artists residing in Ottawa, Allegan, Kent, Muskegon and Kalamazoo counties were invited to submit artwork for the official Festival Artwork Competition and the Viewers’ Choice Awards. The themes were to represent Tulip Time’s mission to celebrate Holland’s tulips, Dutch heritage and community with special consideration to our 90th festival theme: ‘join the dance as we paint the town orange!’
Submissions for the 2019 AIB competition have been received and we will announce the top 20 on October 25, 2018. One of these top 20 will be selected as the winner and be announced as the official Tulip Time poster in February 2019.
