PRESS RELEASE - MAY 8, 2019
For Immediate Release
WASHINGTON STATE HOT ROD HALL OF FAME SEEKS AUTOMOTIVE ARTWORK
The Washington State Hot Rod Hall of Fame Art Show selection committee is currently seeking automotive artwork for the 2019 International art show raffle to be held during its annual awards banquet.
A variety of art may be contributed for the show. Art is auctioned off and 100% of the proceeds go to our selected charity.
This year, our beneficiary will be the Life Enrichment Options. www.lifeenrichmentoptions.org
Original artwork, prints of original artwork, photo art, etc. should be no larger than 20”X30” and signed by artist. Other art work, such as sculptures and pinstriped objects should be of a manageable size. Include some marketing materials to display with your work. This would provide great exposure to a pretty high end group of automotive enthusiasts at our annual awards banquet and art show.
The Hall of Fame asks that pinstriping works be presented on objects other that flat panels, but on more creative and unique objects such as bottles, bowling pins, toolboxes, or… how creative can you get?
Please call me at 206-354-8347 to discuss. Thanks in advance.
