The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut, in partnership with WHEELpassion, invites sculptors to submit samples of their work for a creative challenge: to design an original, one-of-a-kind award to be presented to the winner of the inaugural Danbury Audi Race4Scholars Criterium. The bike race, which will be held this summer in downtown Danbury on Sunday, August 17th, will help establish college scholarship funds for high school graduates who intend to major in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) disciplines, as well as medical and other relevant fields.
The selected artist is asked to be present at the August 17th awards presentation and will be recognized during the unveiling of the winning piece. The artist will also be included in the race's extensive print, on air, and social media promotional campaigns, and on the Cultural Alliance website.
Sculptors are encouraged to visit http://wheelpassion.org to become more informed about the organization and its charitable work. To apply, visit www.artswesternct.org. The deadline for all applications is Thursday, May 8th.
