Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

The City of Suwanee is looking for artists and other creative individuals who”d like to have their artwork displayed on tree limbs and in other natural settings. The city is hosting a competition for artwork to be considered for its 2011 Art on a Limb program.

Art on a Limb is a month-long initiative designed to celebrate and bring attention to the arts as well as the natural beauty of Suwanee”s parks. Through the program, two pieces of original artwork, especially created for the City of Suwanee, are placed along the Suwanee Creek Greenway and at other parks each day throughout the month of May. Those who find the art pieces get to keep them.

The award-winning Art on a Limb program is now in its seventh year. Past Art on a Limb pieces have included clay orbs, original paintings on small pieces of Suwanee”s old water tower, nature-themed ceramic tiles, vintage magnets, giclees of old and new Suwanee icons and gourds painted to resemble birds.

Original artwork, including small paintings and drawings on a variety of materials as well as sculptures, glasswork, ceramics or any other suitable medium that can be placed outside (on a tree limb or on the ground) and carried by hand will be accepted. The deadline for submissions is February 21.
