Constitution Week USA is holding its first adult fine art competition this year as part of the annual commemoration of the birth of the U.S. Constitution.
This contest will join the student essay and art contests that have been part of the event in the past, with the artwork to be displayed at the Sept. 19 Constitution Fair at Gilbert’s Mesquite High School. The theme will be “Which Right is Right for You?” and focus on the Bill of Rights. Event organizers are seeking work in all media to display at the fair, and would welcome the donation of the pieces to the nonprofit organization as well.
Those interested in participating can download a prospectus on the Web site, (www.constitutionweekusa.com) For more information, contact Jean at firstname.lastname@example.org or (480) 497-0677 or Barb at (602) 369-6116.
Constitution Week is Sept. 17-23, and will include a number of events. Former Republican presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain, is expected to speak at a Sept. 18 presentation of the musical program “The Price of Freedom.”
