WI Wild Bird Art Due Today @ Princeton Public Library
May 29 all-day
WI Wild Bird Art Due Today @ Princeton Public Library

Today is the deadline to turn in art for the WI Wild Birds Art Show. All art must be at the Princeton Public Library before closing time at 5pm.

The Princeton Whooping Crane and Nature Festival, the Princeton Public Library, and Marsh Haven Nature Center (Waupun) are working together to hold a juried art contest and show featuring art inspired by the conservation of wild Wisconsin birds. First place winners will be given a unique opportunity to meet live birds of prey at a free, private “Hawk Talk” event. It is hoped that this art show will inspire artists and the general public to become interested in bird and nature conservation. We also seek to promote the wonderful learning opportunities associated with each of the three organizations. Last, but not least, we want to promote local artists. We are seeking submissions from Wisconsin adults and high school students, whose work will be shown extensively in the local area.

For full rules and guidelines, please visit https://www.princetonpublib.org/ and click on WI Wild Birds Art Show.

Basic Info:

There is no entry fee. We make no claim on any art entered. Only 2D art will be accepted, and this year we will not accept photography (we may do a photography-only art show in the future). All art pieces must be turned in to the Princeton Public Library by Friday, May 29th at 5pm. After submission, art pieces will be displayed locally, including at the Princeton Public Library, Marsh Haven Nature Center, and other public locations. Art will be rotated between locations during June, July, and August. Finally, all art submissions will be displayed at the Princeton Whooping Crane and Nature Festival at the Princeton High School on Saturday, September 12th, where prizes will be presented.

Prizes: Judges will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each age category (Adult and High School Students).

1st Place in each category: $25 gift card for Hobby Lobby or a similar art supply store, AND a personal, up-close raptor experience at Marsh Haven Nature Center. Each winner and two guests of their choice will be invited to Marsh Haven (located in Waupun), where they will have an opportunity to attend a Hawk Talk program, which offers a close-up, casual setting to talk about all things raptors. Participants will be invited to sit in a roundtable format for a Q & A with our animal caretaker and one of Marsh Haven Nature Center’s educational raptors. This is an opportunity to ask those questions you’ve always wondered about, delve into the philosophy of working with raptors, gain an insight into the care and training of the birds, and just be in the presence of these magnificent birds of prey. Scheduling this event will be discussed with Marsh Haven and the winners.

2nd Place in each category: $25 gift card for Hobby Lobby or a similar art supply store.

3rd Place in each category: $15 gift card for Hobby Lobby or a similar art supply store.
