Summer Solstice Calls for Artists for 2020 Poster, T-Shirt Design

The Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration has put out a call for artists to enter this year’s contest to design the 2020 poster and T-shirt with the theme “Beautiful Earth.” 

The 2020 Summer Solstice Celebration will be June 19 to 21 with the 46th annual parade to start at noon June 20. 

A $500 honorarium will be awarded to the artist whose work is selected, said Sumer Solstice Executive Director Robin Elander. 
“We’re always on the lookout for new talent,” Elander said. Even if, especially if you’ve never proposed a design to grace our collectible posters and T-shirts, it’s time to give it your best shot! This could be your year to shine.” 
The winning work will be conceived with unrestrained imagination, she said.  

“Let it be unique and remarkable and representative of our Beautiful Earth,” Elander said. “Be inspired by marvels such as the majestic in stature or even the eerie iridescence of the aurora borealis. Let ideas emerge, like butterflies, in color, motion and sound.” 

Works submitted must be available to be dropped off on between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. March 4 at Cafe Ana, at the corner of Anapamu and Anacapa streets in Santa Barbara. 

An exhibit of submissions will open downtown on Downtown Santa Barbara’s 1st Thursday on March 5.
