The American Museum of Science and Energy Foundation is having its first art contest.
The competition is open to the public.
The foundation is asking those who enter the contest to make art that represents an element, elements, or the periodic table of elements.
“For example, an artist may draw a representation of the periodic table, sculpt a carbon molecule, paint a neon sign, or create a computer graphic of a blimp full of hydrogen,” the contest instructions said.
Each person may only submit one entry. All entries must be original and not copies of another artist’s work. You should not submit work copied from published photographs, magazines, book illustrations, websites, or other art resources, the instructions said.
Contest categories include ceramic, drawing, mixed media, painting, sculpture, computer graphics, printmaking, and photography.
There will be eight $100 category awards and one $500 best in show award.
Entries are due by February 1.
