Wall to Canvas is seeking 'street style' artists that use wheat pasting, stencils, collage, spray painting, markers, and the like to create unique pieces of live art.

12 artists will be chosen to compete for a chance to win a $500 cash prize and an art show at the Artifactory. A live auction and artist merch tent both present money making opportunities for all participating artists. Proceeds of the auction will be split to benefit both the artists and the educational programming of The Shelburne Craft School.

Deadline June 30th 2015 | Must be 21+ to apply

The Shelburne Craft School is the sole Sponsor of the Wall to Canvas Contest. All entrants must be 21 years of age or older at the time of entry. For additional information and registration visit: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/30995702901961

6th Annual Wall to Canvas

Proud to be in its sixth year, Wall to Canvas is an annual live art competition hosted at Magic Hat's unique South Burlington Artifactory. Magic Hat has been putting a performance in every bottle of craft brew since 1994 and The Shelburne Craft School is where craft has been made in Vermont, since opening back in 1945. Together they create an event that boasts cold beers, fresh art, live music, and an opportunity to take a piece of it all home with you!

Wall to Canvas features twelve artists that are chosen from around the region for their style and creativity. Competing live, they each start with large blank canvases and finish with off-the-wall and into-your-home masterpieces! The freshly created artwork will be sold at the end of the day in a live auction, with 50% of the proceeds going directly to the artist and 50% to fund educational programs at the Shelburne Craft School. Artists will compete live to win one very nice prize: $500 cash and a solo exhibit at Magic Hat Artifactory! Special guest judges will have their work cut out for them in choosing the winner!

We hope you'll join us for a cold beer and some bold artwork at the Magic Hat brewery for this year's Wall to Canvas.
