American Icon Art Competition
For California artists

This year's American Icon theme"Forgotten America" is your chance to show the world your interpretation of that beauty. A once gleaming, now abandoned and desert-baked car. A proud but lonely veteran. An attic packed with decades of distant memories. Interpret the word "forgotten" as you like and submit what you feel conveys the essence of some one, some where or some thing in America that's been forgotten.

The American Icon Art Competition is an opportunity to foster the personal expression of American imagery:

  • Using photography, painting, drawing, sculpture and mixed media, we seek submissions by both professional and amateur artists
  • World-recognized and long-established artists and creative professionals will judge all entries
  • Cash prizes of $3,000
  • Winners will be exhibited at the world famous Sausalito Art Festival over Labor Day Weekend
  • Deadline to enter is July 31, 2017

Deadline: 07-31-2017
