OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Blue Moon is teaming up with the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce-Main Street-Tourism Bureau to call on Mississippi artists for a chance to win $2,000 and a showcase of artwork during the Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival.
Blue Moon, an artfully crafted beer, follows the concept that brewing is an art. Therefore, art is present in all aspects of Blue Moon. To bring that feeling to Mississippi, Blue Moon inspired the Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival to call artists throughout Mississippi to paint their interpretation of Blue Moon.
One applicant will be chosen as the Blue Moon Art Project winner. The winner will receive $2,000 and will be the feature work for all things Blue Moon in the coming year's Peter Anderson Festival.
This year, the festival will take place on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2.
"Art is not just about a sculpture or a painting," said Cynthia Dobbs-Sutton, Events and Public Relations Manager for the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce-Main Street-Tourism Bureau. "Art is about creativity and expressing individuality through such mediums as painting, singing, building, culinary cooking or even beer making. We want to welcome those artists to team up with us and Blue Moon and express themselves through a painting celebrating all things artfully crafted and to show the nation our creative economy."
Artists over the age of 21 who reside in Mississippi may download this year's application at www.peterandersonfestival.com and by clicking on the Blue Moon logo.
Size of painting and canvas used is strictly enforced. All artwork and applications must be delivered to the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce- Main Street-Tourism Bureau by Thursday, Oct. 16, no later than 3 p.m. to be considered.
This year's project is brought about by Blue Moon Brewing Company, F.E.B. Distributing Company and the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce-Main Street-Tourism Bureau.
