Is anybody keeping track of the latest regarding the Paint the Parks
competition and Paint America competitions? I just went online to do a
little digging and noticed that the PaintAmerica.org domain is up for
grabs via auction - interested parties must bid $650 or more. This
used to be the domain for PaintAmerica, which ran both competitions.
All info about past competitions and winners seems to be gone from the
web, other than some references on Facebook and those related to the
Coutts Museum. Rod Seel is now the director of the Coutts and seems to
be running the art competitions under the auspices of that museum.
Information is rather sketchy, though.
Some of you may remember the former Arts for the Parks, which once had
a $50,000 grand prize. It disbanded a few years ago - apparently
suddenly and to the surprise of many. Paint the Parks attempted to
keep the flame burning, so to speak.
Just wondering what information anyone else has - and whether any of
you submitted in the last 2-3 years?
