In the world of mixed media, this is something new to me. UP for Art (a University Place public art advocate group) and the Chambers Bay Golf Course are sponsoring the contest Up “Fore!” Art. They’re asking for two- or three-dimensional art submissions comprised at least 25 per cent of golf accoutrements. Think Duchamp with golf clubs. Or a Damien Hirst skull with golf balls in all orifices. A pointilist tee collage. Lots of possibilities.
The prize is , the deadline June 17 for applications and July 31 for artwork. Entry is $10 for 17 and under, $15 for adults, and $20 for groups. Prizes are $100, $50 and $25 in each category, plus gift certificates to the golf course. There will also be a People’s Choice prize. The contest will be held in conjunction with the UP festival on July 31 and August 1-2. See www.upforart.org for details and application form.
