Library Art Contest

Create the art wrap for the new book return in front of the library!

Submissions due by Friday, November 4

HSTA, in partnership with the Hidden Springs Branch Library, is seeking artists to submit their designs for use in an art wrap on the library’s new book return. The winning artist’s design or mural will be transformed into a vinyl wrap and applied to the book return which will be located right outside the library.

A panel of HSTA and Hidden Springs Branch Library judges will select three submissions as finalists. The three finalists will then be posted on the HSTA website, where the public can vote to determine the final winner. The winning artwork will be revealed at the HSTA Holiday Christmas party.

The contest is now open, and submissions are due by Friday, November 4th, 2016.

Submit your artwork to:

HSTA Town Office

5876 Hidden Springs Dr.

Boise, ID 83714

All artwork submissions must adhere to the following:

  • The artist must reside in Hidden Springs.
  • Design can be creative, but it should reflect the nature and feel of Hidden Springs.
  • No recognizable person(s) should be depicted.
  • Design must be submitted electronically on a high-resolution file or created on board or art paper.
  • The photo must be large and clear enough so that it can be easily examined by the judging panel.
  • By submitting your artwork into the contest, you are allowing HSTA and Hidden Springs Branch Library to take full ownership of your artwork if you are selected as a finalist.
