Tulip Time Seeks Artist Design Submissions for Giant Wooden Shoes
Tulip Time has announced that Klompen Garden will return in 2020.
Klompen Garden debuted last year. It will once again feature 20 pairs of large, wooden shoes designed by local artists, then installed in Holland city parks and tulip beds during Tulip Time.
Individual artists or groups of artists who live in Ottawa, Allegan, Kent, Muskegon or Kalamazoo counties are invited to enter a design concept/sketch. Deadline to enter is Oct. 14 at 11:59 p.m.
Tulip Time will supply the wooden shoes to winning submissions. The shoes are 34 inches long x 12 inches wide x 12 inches tall.
One juried grand prize winner will be awarded $1,000 and displayed at Holland Area Arts Council during Tulip Time. The other 19 entries will be displayed in downtown Holland for the public to vote on from May 2 - 19, 2020, with first place winning $500, second place $300 and third place $200.
Tulip Time 2020 is May 2 - May 10.
