Student poster contest for Arts in the Square 2012

(Frisco) Frisco Square and Frisco Arts just announced the kick-off of a competitive, student artist poster contest for the 3nd annual Arts in the Square event to be held March 31 and April 1, 2012. 

This year the event is represented by a newly designed logo; and local student artists are invited to submit artwork to be considered for the poster design.  

“Because this event is artist-focused, inviting Frisco student artists to compete for the winning design enhances community participation in the event,” said Cathy Sweeney, Managing Partner for Frisco Square.  Students interested in competing in the contest are invited to get an application from the Frisco ISD art teachers who are participating.

The 3rd annual Arts in the Square is co-presented and hosted by Frisco Square Development, which maintains a reputation of bringing high end buying crowds to this event, and Frisco Arts, which manages the Frisco Discovery Center.

“Art is everywhere in Frisco. Our city and community have embraced the arts and made it a priority for all citizens to have access to the arts,” said Sharon Roland with Frisco Arts.

Frisco Arts, the Official Art Agency of Frisco, is designated to enrich the Frisco community by supporting the awareness, presence and practice of the visual, musical, and performing arts. In addition to both organizations providing the community with this high-quality cultural art event, the festival proceeds benefit local charity partners who bring great Fine Arts experiences to the community and provide student art scholarships.

Arts in the Square is an annual, juried Fine Arts festival featuring the best national and regional artists who sell their original creations. Exhibitors began the application process through the ZAPP Application web site on July 15, 2011. The application is only available through and the registration deadline is Jan. 24, 2012.
