T-Shirt Design Contest


Attention high school artists and designers! The Figge is holding its annual Figge Factory t-shirt Design Contest. Email us your original t-shirt design by December 4, 2020 to ballen@figgeartmuseum.org.  The winner's design will be printed on shirts that will be for sale in the Figge Art Museum Store, with all proceeds benefiting next year's educational programs at the Figge. The winner will also receive $100 cash, a family membership to the Figge, and a private screen-printing party for them and three friends. The aim of the contest is to engage teens in the field of art and design by tapping into the hipness of t-shirt and DIY culture. Contact Brian Allen at ballen@figgeartmuseum.org with questions.
